School Library Journal - 03/01/2018 Gr 3–5—Carter meets Anna while their families are on vacation in Costa Rica. Carter does not take chances; having anxiety means he plans ahead and is ready for any contingency. Anna seems more adventurous, at least at first. The two decide to do some exploring when Anna becomes frightened of the loud howler monkeys and runs into the jungle. Before they know it, the pair is lost. They must use their knowledge and what's left of Carter's survival kit to stay alive and find their way back. Johnson uses her personal experiences as a conservation officer in Canada to add credibility to the story and craft a realistic setting. Back matter includes detailed information on making a survival kit. VERDICT A quick and exciting read. Kids who love the "I Survived" series will enjoy this nail-biting tale.—Kris Hickey, Columbus Metropolitan Library, OH - Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
