Inhaltsangabe: After a car accident in a snowy Colorado pass seriously injures their parents, athletic fourteen-year-old Danielle and her brainy younger brother, Jake, must scale a mountain to find help.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-8-Danielle, 14, Jake, 13, and their parents are driving into the Colorado mountains toward their cabin when they encounter a sudden snow storm and crash. The teens decide to climb to the weather station on top of Mt. Remington to get help for their injured parents rather than attempt the 20-odd mile trek back the way they came. Working together to survive, athletic Danielle begins to appreciate her brother's ingenuity as he applies McGiver-like problem-solving skills to the situation, using a smattering of tools from his dad's toolbox to aid their climb. Jake learns that he has to trust his sister and depend on her strength and knowledge of mountain climbing. They eventually get help for their parents and anticipate a successful rehabilitation. The writing is crisp and clear as the siblings fight their way to the station, overcoming a rock slide, a fall on the rope, and other physical and mental challenges. Characterization is a bit obvious, but this is an adventure story. Rather than bogging readers down in detail, the story surges forward with an emphasis on action. The author includes a warning against anyone trying such a dangerous substitution of common tools for proper climbing equipment. The cover is attractive and the book should appeal to readers who enjoy an exciting tale.
