***Valerie – #NerdGirlVal’s Review***
Wow! I close the book with my mouth hanging open and tears running down my cheeks. Five friends, four of them best friends go to Brazil to volunteer in the Amazon forest. Before they got there, people were going missing and nobody knew why. These kids an a Dad discovered what survival was as they were being hunted as prey. They all had a tragedy or tragic childhood and survived. That is what drew them together and become friends.
You flash back on the lives of all the characters in the story. That flash back shows you that most tragedy comes full circle in one way or another. It makes you think about your own life and if you’re are a survivor of one king or another, I am a survivor of cancer and near death experience. My childhood wasn’t the greatest, but it was heaven compared to theses kids.
I never want to have to survive the fear these people went through. Very well written and covered most emotions, this author is a new author to me. I would love to see what her novels are like after this short story.
