Jocelyn and Alex have always been best friends, and their annual joint family vacation to the Northwoods of Wisconsin has usually been a time of ritual fun (donuts and jumping off piers, anyone?) But this year Alex doesn’t seem like herself, and the trip gets off to a strained start as Jocelyn feels like Alex thinks her phone is more important than anything else. An argument leads to disaster on their rafting trip, and suddenly they have no one but each other to depend on in the woods.
This is a great story for people who like to read stories about friendships, adventure, or who like to explore feelings. The author grew up in Wisconsin, and you can feel how much she loves to go “up north.” Great characters and suspense will keep you turning pages!
