It was supposed to be a vacation - and a chance to get to know one another 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.
This is the first of three exciting adventures from multi-Emmy Award winning host of Survivor, Jeff Probst and New York Times best-selling Chris Tebbetts!

When I bought this book I wasn't aware it was a " tune in again next time " story.
I'll have someone read the fine print for me when I buy another one. ☺
adventurous, fun , clean, uplifting
laugh, it had funny parts but was mostly was adventurous
it ended too soon
This book was just getting good when it ended. If there isn't a sequel I will return and change my overall rating to one star.
The narrator was good but there was nothing special about the narration.
This book would never make a good movie because there is no ending. It just stopped. As far as a TV series I might watch it only if I knew it continued beyond the end of the book.
I wish I had never purchased this book without knowing if there would be a sequel. I have never listened to a book that ended like this before and I hope to never do so again,
An adequate story.
No. A very choppy narration. This just couldn't be saved....
Don't think so...there is so much out there. This is part one...I will leave it at that.
I couldn't tell them apart.
I love this sort of story. Survival, I had hoped for some hints...kids working together.
I am always looking for the next memoir or true story to appease the feminist inside me who loves psychology.
I would recommend it to a friend for a road trip with kids... possibly. I was not too thrilled with the narrator and I know kids would be so even less. But the story is about siblings coming together after a shipwreck, good story, boring narrator. Kids that like the Boxcar Children series may like this.
I listened to this out of curiosity about Jeff Probst's book series. I kept an open mind that I was not exactly the intended audience.. it is written for children around age 7 to 12 I would say. It reminded me of some of my favorite book series when I was that age a big difference though was the lack of, what I will call, an unsolvable solvable mystery. This book was a stage setter and descriptive but lacked a sense of urgency and purpose for the characters (maybe it was just the narrator though..).
Not enough in this book for a movie, possibly if combined with the series.
Robinson Crusoe meets Survivor meets Boxcar Children... potential. I will have to continue reading the series to see how it works out.
Maybe, but only if the price is right. This is the first book in a series of 3, but it's less than 3 hours of listening! The three books should be combined into one, at least for the price.
Jane. She has the most sense of any of them.
Maybe a movie if it includes all 3 books in the series. There isn't enough material for a TV series.
Lower the price of the next two books. They shouldn't cost as much as a book with 8 or more hours of listening! All three books just barely add up to that.
Only part of the story. You have to buy 2 more books. Book 1 is not complete like the books of a series. It's just the first third of the story. Other than that, it is ingesting and pretty well done.
