From the Emmy-Award winning host of Survivor , Jeff Probst, with Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life co-author, Chris Tebbetts, comes a brand new family adventure series!

A family vacation becomes a game of survival!
It was supposed to be a vacation--and a chance to get to know each other better. But when a massive storm sets in without warning, four kids are shipwrecked alone on a rocky jungle island in the middle of the South Pacific. No adults. No instructions. Nobody to rely on but themselves. Can they make it home alive?

A week ago, the biggest challenge Vanessa, Buzz, Carter, and Jane had was learning to live as a new blended family. Now the four siblings must find a way to work as a team if they're going to make it off the island. They're all in this adventure together--but first they've got to learn to survive one another.

Stranded is a fast paced juvenile fiction read. It is an adventure about four children from a recently blended family who are stranded on a deserted island. The four must figure out how to survive and learn how to depend on each others strengths. The story kept my attention.

This book may seem young, but I recommend it for all ages if your looking for an adventure, connection with the characters and a connection to the family ties they build. The other 5 books are great too. Similar to the show "Survivor" since the author is Jeff Probst

Jane, Buzz, Carter, and Vanessa are shipwrecked on an island not located on any maps. One little thing back at their house would be a big problem here. Will they survive? Or will they all die of hunger and thirst?

Jane: 9; Buzz: 11; Carter: 11; Vanessa: 13.
