Publisher's Summary

Hatchet meets Long Way Down in this heartfelt and gripping novel in verse about a young girl's struggle for survival after a climbing trip with her father goes terribly wrong.

One year after a random shooting changed their family forever, Nora and her father are exploring a slot canyon deep in the Arizona desert, hoping it will help them find peace. Nora longs for things to go back to normal, like they were when her mother was still alive, while her father keeps them isolated in fear of other people. But when they reach the bottom of the canyon, the unthinkable happens: A flash flood rips across their path, sweeping away Nora's father and all of their supplies.

Suddenly, Nora finds herself lost and alone in the desert, facing dehydration, venomous scorpions, deadly snakes, and, worst of all, the Beast who has terrorized her dreams for the past year. If Nora is going to save herself and her father, she must conquer her fears, defeat the Beast, and find the courage to live her new life.

Tugged At My Heart

Dusti Bowling has written yet another great book. This fictional story was extremely realistic and tugged at my heart. It’s a great book for middle school students up throughout adulthood but not so much for younger listeners since it goes into such detail about the physical struggles inside the canyon.

Overall, this book was very well written and the narrator portrayed the characters extremely accurate. Dusti Bowling continues to share stories that keep you engaged throughout the entire read.
