As a kid, I loved books about survival and adventure—stories where teens, just like me, had to battle the elements and use their skills and wits to get out of life or death situations. Like many kids who weren’t generally allowed to go out and do crazy things, I had an appetite for excitement that could only be satisfied by books and my own imagination. Books were a way for me to escape and feel like I was having my own adventure, without actually leaving the comfort of my own home! So it’s no surprise that I read Avalanche as soon as I could get my hands on it. It’s clear that my love of survival and adventure still holds strong. That’s why I had to put together a list of some of my favorites!
Can’t wait to read Avalanche? You’re in luck! We have an extended excerpt available until December 12th so you can start your adventure right away! Plus, check out our behind the book with author Melinda Braun. Stranded, Melinda’s first novel, is also a free read until Decmber 12th!
