Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 5
Genre: Contemporary realistic YA fiction
What did you like about the book? Bex is determined to learn all the survival skills she possibly can to be ready if there is a monumental crisis. She is an excellent shot, a good runner and adept at living in the wilderness. Her older brother Mark used to train with her but lately he has begun handing with a questionable group. While Bex works at her uncle’s garage, paying her own way, her brother is unemployed. She is almost invisible to her parents who favor her brother, treating him as if he can do no wrong. When her brother attempts a terrorist crime, Bex is caught in the cross-hairs, ending up in prison. Her parents blame her for her brother’s mess. Bex is very strong; one has no problem rooting for her and hoping all turns out okay.
