Description-

  • When a fire cuts off a popular trail in the Oregon forest, a small group trapped by the flames must find another way out-or die-in Playing with Fire, an unrelenting teen-vs-nature YA thriller by New York Times bestselling author April Henry. Natalia is not the kind of girl who takes risks. Six years ago, she barely survived the house fire that killed her baby brother. Now she is cautious and always plays it safe. For months, her coworker Wyatt has begged her to come hiking with him, and Natalia finally agrees. But when a wildfire breaks out, blocking the trail back, a perfect sunny day quickly morphs into a nightmare. With no cell service, few supplies, and no clear way out of the burning forest, a group of strangers will have to become allies if they're going to survive. Hiking in the dark, they must deal with injuries, wild animals and even a criminal on the lam-before the fire catches them.

About the Author-

  • April Henry is the New York Times bestselling author of many acclaimed mysteries for adults and young adults, including the YA novels Girl, Stolen and The Night She Disappeared and the thriller Face of Betrayal, coauthored with Lis Wiehl. She lives in Oregon.

    Gr 9 Up-Natalia bears the burden of having accidentally started a fire that resulted in burns to her legs and the death of her little brother. Six years later, she's working at an ice cream stand with Wyatt. When he invites her to go hiking on a trail leading to a waterfall, she reluctantly agrees. When they're trapped by a fire, the dry conditions send flames ripping toward them. The two teens, along with a group of fellow hikers, must deal with treachery, life-threatening situations, and the ever-present inferno chasing them along steep and uneven trails. All of the action happens during a 24-hour period. Amy McFadden's narration is well done, but each emergency includes exposition that almost comes across as a wilderness medicine lecture. VERDICT An audiobook that outdoor enthusiasts, adrenaline junkies, and those who have had a similar experience will easily relate to.-John R. Clark, formerly with Hartland P.L., ME
