Description

The last thing Amanda wants is to spend a week in the forest with her classmates, who have spent the past year making her life miserable. But it's the school adventure week and she has no choice. When her boat overturns on a whitewater rafting course that is supposed to be the highlight of the trip, Amanda and Philip, the class bully, are separated from the rest of the class and nearly drown. Cold and confused, they manage to scramble ashore to safety, beginning a week-long struggle for survival.

Swedish author Sofia Nordin has written a thoughtful, gripping and realistic account of a battle for survival against all the odds.
