Mayday: can one boy save them all?
The debut novel by J.E. Timlin has just hit the bookshelves and is waiting to be read by 7-11 year olds with a passion for adventure and flying
Thirteen-year old Nate now knew where the middle of nowhere was. It was right here and he was stranded in it!
The plane carrying him and five other kids to a dream holiday in Alaska has crashed in the midst of a horrific snowstorm. They are miles off their scheduled route and the weather is far too extreme for anyone to reach them, even if they could work out where to search.
Their pilot, the only adult in the group is in a coma and his best friend, Luke and a little girl are badly in need of immediate medical attention.
An impossible dilemma faces Nate:
Should the group hunker down and wait it out, hoping rescuers would reach them before the three injured or sick members of their party die?
Or, should he try to patch up their battered plane and attempt to fly them out himself, possibly killing them all?
Struggling for survival in the brutal Canadian winter, the ragged little group face problems on top of set-backs, with complications thrown in for good measure. Fixing the plane requires ingenuity and team work. Do Nate and his new friends have the problem-solving abilities, the determination and the courage to make it out of the wilderness alive?
