A physical-survival-meets-emotional-survival story à la Gary Paulsen, set in Bowling's vividly detailed Southwest. Nora and her dad have been left reeling after Nora's mom was killed by a shooter in a restaurant. When they go to explore a slot canyon on the one-year anniversary of her death, a flash flood sweeps away all of their food, water, and supplies and separates them, leaving Nora alone to fight for survival and find her dad. This is just terrifically written. It begins as a novel, but breaks into novel-in-verse when things become too unbearable (and Nora too weak) to endure full sentences. ~ Reviewed by Madja Tiktinsky
