Books On Our Radar: Switchback by Danika Stone
Switchback by Danika Stone should be on your radar! This survival story about 2 friends who get lost in the Canadian wilderness just screams to be read. There is just something about survival stories that I love. Whether contemporary like Switchback, or even paranormal or fantasy, I love a good plot of must do ‘anything to survive’ stories. Two best friends who are on a school sponsored camping trip get separated from the group and then their fight for survival begins. Sounds gripping! So add Switchback to your TBR for the May 28th release date!

Ashton Hamid knows everything about gaming. His D&D battles are epic; the video game tournaments he organizes, multi-day tests of endurance with players around the world. Real life, however, is a different matter. So when he and his best friend—outspoken "A" student (and social outcast) Vale Shumway—head out on a camping trip to Waterton Lakes National Park with their Phys. Ed. class, Ash figures it’ll be two days of bug bites, bad food, and inside jokes.
Instead, the two friends find themselves in a fight for survival.
An unexpected October snowstorm separates Ash and Vale from the rest of their class. By the time the teens realize they’ve missed the trail, they have wandered deep into the Canadian Rockies. Lost in the wilderness and hunted by deadly predators, their only hope is to work together. But with Vale’s limited supplies and Ash’s inexperience, can the best friends stay alive long enough to find their way back to civilization?
