YOUNG ADULT FICTION— Suspense, Survival Thriller
TRIGGER/CONTENT WARNING(S): Anorexia Discussion
The Breakfast Club meets Alive in this gripping tale of survival, impossible choices, and the harrowing balance between life and death.
Six teens, one dog, a ski trip gone wrong . . .
Sam is dreading senior ski weekend and having to watch after her brother and his best friend, Gavin, to make sure they don’t do anything stupid. Again. Gavin may be gorgeous, but he and Sam have never gotten along. Now they’re crammed into an SUV with three other classmates and Gavin’s dog, heading on a road trip that can’t go by fast enough.
Then their SUV crashes into a snowbank, and Sam and her friends find themselves stranded in the mountains with cell phone coverage long gone and temperatures dropping. When the group gets sick of waiting for rescue, they venture outside to find help–only to have a wilderness accident leave Sam’s brother with a smashed leg and, soon, a raging fever. While the hours turn to days, Sam’s brother gets sicker and sicker, and their food and supplies dwindle until there isn’t enough for everyone. As the winter elements begin to claim members of the group one by one, Sam vows to keep her brother alive.
No matter what.
Filled with twists, secrets, and life-changing moments, Ski Weekend is a snow-packed survival thriller featuring a diverse cast of teens that will appeal to fans of One of Us is Lying and I Am Still Alive.

Do you enjoy YA survival books? If so than you’ll definitely want to pick this one up! Although I’d recommend maybe not reading it while preparing for a ski weekend in the middle of a snow storm!
Six of the most unlikely of friends end up stranded on the side of a mountain during a snow storm while on their way to the senior ski trip. Sam didn’t even want to come on the trip but when her friend Lily convinces Sam’s younger brother Stuart to go on the trip with them Sam feels obligated to make sure to keep an eye on him. Little does she know she’ll soon be trapped in a car with the jock, prom queen wannabe, her best friend, and the boy who was supposed to be her friend but didn’t speak to her after moving away the year before.
As minutes turn to hours turn to days the more scared the group of teens get. Will they survive?
After reading this book I’ve decided I need to brush up on my survival skills and make sure that I always check the weather before I take a road trip anywhere, even if it’s somewhere close! I never thought I’d enjoy books about survival but over time I’ve come to really enjoy them and this is definitely one I would recommend. It’s fast-pace keeps you engaged and prepare yourself to sit on the edge of your seat throughout this high stakes story!
