Writing a survival thriller is not easy, especially when your main character spends a lot of time floating and feeling thirsty. Bodeen effortlessly takes readers into the head of stranded Robie, the refreshing narrator who breaks the mold of YA protagonist tropes. As her state of mind disintegrates, the eerie realization that something is deeply wrong dawns on readers in a creepy, page-turning climax.
Robie Mitchell is enjoying some unexpected freedom: her aunt has left for a business trip, and Robie’s alone with all the frappuccinos she can drink. But a scary near-assault sends her running for her parents via an ill-fated cargo flight, on which she is the only passenger. When the plane goes down, Robie is one of just two survivors. What follows is a harrowing struggle for survival, during which Robie will be driven to the edge of sanity. (FEIWEL AND FRIENDS, Aug., 240 pp., $16.99, HC, ISBN: 9780312650100, 14 & Up)
