A race for survival after a very suspicious plane crash, eight young teens, some very different than the others, need to learn to work together if they are to live. The first thing they figure out is that it was very odd that they were flying over the artic but crashed in a jungle. As they explore their surroundings even more, all they find are even more questions and danger around every turn.
This is another awesome Westerfeld book, and one can only imagine how much fun the game will be to play, being part of the team and working together to get out of the jungle and to return home. This multimedia platform might make it especially pleasing to reluctant readers. This book is full suspense and action and that it is a great start to an awesome series. I really can't wait to see what happens down the trail to these young friends, I hope I get to write more about their explorations and adventures, but no spoilers here.
