    Unputdownable

    "There is alot of potential in this Canadian author yet! Ronnie Dauber captures "teenagism" perfectly in this natural disaster flick, which is part of a series for the main character; Sarah Davies. Set in a ficticious park called White Canyon Park, we waste no time in getting to the scene, and expecting trouble, as Sarah feels a preminition of danger with the trees "waving" at her. Its a feeling we all have; something in the air.

    A bus load of school kids get divided into a team of eight, (four boys, four girls) and their teacher, to trek and camp along this natural park, not realising there is a potential Mudslide on the way that will sweep them away into danger, leaving them all on a fight for survival and to help each other, even their teacher! The message of the story is team work counts, and that all prejudiced should be put aside. Ronnie Dauber paints some quite colourful characters; a vain drunken jock, a suicidal geek, an intelligent Indonesian boy, and caring - if selfish girls. Sarah Davies is far from a damsel in distress, but other female characters seem to play into that stereotype for attention from the males, much to Sarah's annoyance. There is also crushes and romance in the air in spite of the situation.

    The book layout in clean in language; no swearing, no street talk, nothing vulgar for this "Young Adult" book, and the tension is always there. And thankfully it does not fall into the "LOST" trap (the cancelled TV series), where characters do the most stupid things just to keep the story going, or bring in unrealistic events. It is also fairly thin at just over 200 pages, so its good for travelling with, and is a quick read if on holiday or on that plane trip. Sarah Davies thinks or dreams back in the past a few times in the story, so the reader does have to be focused. And, very few books I've read where a character actually gets buried alive - but she makes it out, don't worry. That's something of a rarity that I'm sure readers will want to see. Also, there are moments when it seems they won't get rescued at all, so quite some potential there!

    I'm glad to hear the character Sarah Davies will return in the next book Firestorm coming out in July 2011; I hope the same character image will be used o the front cover. This is a great independent book, a real gem. So read it now!"
