They thought it couldn’t get any worse. They were wrong. Being shipwrecked on a jungle island in the middle of the South Pacific was bad enough. But now that Carter, Vanessa, Buzz, and Jane have lost their boat–and almost everything on board–to another violent storm, it’s like starting over. That means finding food and shelter, making fire for the first time, dealing with the wild boars that roam the island–and of course, figuring how to get along (and not kill each other in the process). Survival is not individual sport in a place like this, but there’s only one way to learn that. The hard way. (Description taken from the book: Trial by Fire.

A family vacation becomes a test of survival. It was supposed to be a vacation–and a chance to get to know each other better. But when a massive storm sets in without warning, four kids are shipwrecked alone on a rocky jungle island in the middle of the South Pacific. No adults. No instructions. Nobody to rely on but themselves. Can they make it home alive? A week ago, the biggest challenge Vanessa, Buzz, Carter, and Jane had was learning to live as a new blended family. Now the four siblings must find a way to work together if they’re going to make it off the island. But first they’ve got to learn to survive one another. (Description taken from the book: Stranded.
