Gone Wild by Jodi Lundgren
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Seth has just found out that he won’t be able to discover the identity of his birth mother until he is nineteen years old. Those three years seem like an unachievable obstacle when presented alongside his adoptive mother’s mean spirited boyfriend. Brooke has been rebelling against everything her mother is trying to control and her rebellion has led her to the realization that it has been six weeks since her last period. Both teens decide to hike into the wilderness on Vancouver Island and due to complications neither person planned for, they find themselves needing to work together in order to make it out alive.
Gone Wild is a rapid read jammed packed with wilderness survival and teen turmoil. Both characters will be tasked with setting aside what they feel is their problem in order to assist the other with a more pressing issue. Although the book itself does not have much substance (I read it in two hours), for teens that are reluctant to pick up a lengthy book, this just might be what the librarian will recommend. Gone Wild was a pleasant escape with a slight tear jerking moment at the end.
