Review from my 11 year old son.
Its a good book. I mean its a little easy for me to read but I really liked. It taught me alot about Avalanches and how destructive they can be. The characters are pretty awesome and I finished it in a night. The pictures were awesome and I learned a lot about survival.
Review from 8 year old daugher
This book was awesome mom! I learned all about Avalnches and it talked about how cold it gets and how you can freeze. Did you know if you fall asleep cold you can die in your sleep!
The book told me how to survive but I think I could die from the cold. The book was awesome and I was able to read it in a night. Fun, fast read.
