Great adventure tale about 13-year old Francie as she survives in the Oregon wilderness – alone – for nearly 2 weeks after her family gets lost on a road trip from British Columbia to the Grand Canyon. After both parents – separately – go opposite ways trying to find help, Francie calls up all her wits, ingenuity and luck to endure harsh elements, animal encounters, lack of food & water and her own, sometimes raw, emotions. Readers will be rooting for Feisty Francie in this fast paced, can’t-put-down survival story. - Review by Maureen
