Overboard! (Survivor Diaries)
By: Terry Lynn Johnson
This new adventure series is perfect for fans of the I SURVIVED series and HATCHET. Eleven-year-old Travis and his family are on a whale watching trip off the coast of Washington when a rogue wave overturns their boat. Both Travis and Marina, the tour operator’s daughter, are washed overboard and separated from their families. The two of them must battle injury and hypothermia to find dry land. This will not be easy for Travis, a less than fit preteen who gave up gymnastics and spends his spare time playing computer games. Marina has better survival skills, but has a more serious injury and must rely on Travis for help. This series opener has plenty of action to keep readers on the edge of their seats.
The author, Terry Lynn Johnson, is uniquely qualified to write this series. She has seventeen years of hands-on experience as a conservation officer in Ontario, Canada where she has trained in wilderness survival.
