Description-

  • *Named a Best Book of the Year by Cosmopolitan, Entertainment Weekly, Yahoo!Life, Parade, Brit + Co., Book Riot, and more!
    *Optioned for a major motion picture!
    The Breakfast Club meets Lord of the Flies in this gripping tale of survival, impossible choices, and the harrowing balance between life and death that #1 New York Times best-selling author Lauren Kate praises as "a paced thriller with moments of great tenderness—and spine chilling horror."

    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. Brace for impact, ". . . this YA thriller holds little back." (Kirkus Reviews)
    *Winner of the CIBA Dante Rossetti Book Awards, the National Indie Excellence Awards, the Readers' Favorite Book Awards, the Reader Views Literary Awards, IAN Book of the Year Awards Finalist, American Fiction Awards Finalist, Next Generation Indie Book Awards Finalist, WILLA Literary Awards Finalist, and an Independent Press Awards Distinguished Favorite.

    September 1, 2021

    Gr 9 Up-Sam didn't really want to go on the senior ski trip, but decides she needs to keep an eye on her brother Stu. A sophomore, he's tagging along with this group because they're staying at his best friend Gavin's vacation home. Sam and Gavin have a history, but he's with Britney now, the most popular cheerleader in school who is also in the car. When an approaching snow storm closes roads, Hunter, the good-looking class flirt, says he knows a shortcut and they decide to take their chances. It doesn't take long for them to crash the car into a snowbank, leaving Lily (Stu's girlfriend and Sam's best friend) with a dangerous head injury. There's nowhere to go and no cell service, and the car is hopelessly stuck. There is real tension as their survival seems less and less likely, and the author isn't afraid to make hard choices about their fates. The backstory of the romance between Sam and Gavin can't decide if it wants to play second fiddle to the survival tale or be the star, but does provide welcome relief from the mounting tension. The group features a diverse cast of characters. Lily is of Chinese heritage, Stu struggles with painful scoliosis, Hunter is Black with roots in Texas cattle ranching, and Britney is a passionate evangelical Christian. VERDICT A nail-biter with some surprising moments. Recommended for high school and YA collections.-Mandy Laferriere, Fowler M.S., Frisco, TX
