Lost in the River of Grass by Ginny Rorby, 255 pages, read by Leslie, on 05/22/2013

Lost in the River of Grass

When two Florida teenagers become stranded on a tiny island in the Everglades, they attempt to walk ten miles through swampland to reach civilization.

Of the books of hers that I have read, I enjoyed this one the most. I liked being able to see exactly what it would be like to have to endure that trek, it was so real.  And the little twist at the end made it worth the read, it makes you go back and think if there were any tells at all to it during the story.  Although I did wonder why they didn’t even talk about getting the airboat out of the water!
