Description-

  • When their road trips takes a turn for disaster, these teens must rely on their instincts to survive.

    Marissa's favorite singer is coming to a nearby music festival, and Marissa can't wait to rock out with her friends Ben and T. Sure, some things might go wrong, but there's nothing a few road burritos can't fix. It's not until a blown tire strands them in the desert that Marissa realizes their weekend isn't the only thing in danger—their lives might be too.

About the Author-

  • Elizabeth Neal lives in Columbus, Ohio, with her husband and daughter. They have a rescue dog who enjoys couch parkour, grumbling in her sleep, and things that squeak. Visit her online at efneal.com.

    A music festival road trip quickly turns to disaster as best friends navigate hazards and setbacks. Marissa and her longtime friends Tiago and Ben have been waiting all year to see their favorite musicians perform at the big spring music festival. Getting there, however, begins to feel impossible when the trio encounters a string of difficulties on their desert route--both natural and man-made. After car trouble finally leaves them stranded, the friends must rely on their wits and work with each other to get back on the road--and avoid the dangers of the wilderness. The four books in the high-interest Road Trip series offer different takes on the thrills and catastrophes that teens can encounter during travel. In K.R. Coleman's (Royal Treatment, 2018, etc.) Off Course, twin sisters take a detour that results in dire consequences and a surprising encounter. Spinning Out by R.T. Martin (Riptide, 2019, etc.) follows two couples facing a deadly blizzard and a heavy dose of relationship drama. In Stranded by Jannette LaRoche (Escape!, 2019, etc.), plans for a weekend at a family cabin turn ugly for two friends when the road is washed out and they encounter an aggressive wolf. The plotlines move quickly and stay realistic while problems are resolved with neat endings. Characters aren't described physically, but authors include some diversity with ethnically Latinx names, Jewish characters, and a character with two dads. Reluctant readers with wanderlust will enjoy taking a ride with these straightforward novels. (Fiction. 12-18)

    "On road trips that quickly turn catastrophic, teens must rely on grit and determination to survive life-threatening situations. In Spinning Out, two couples on their way to a ski resort get lost in a treacherous snowstorm. Tempers flare after Jesse and Kevin lose their way and must hike through the woods in Stranded. A trio of friends head to a music festival in Heat Wave, only to get lost in the desert with a flat tire. In Off Course, twins Nora and Livi are on their way to a college interview when they veer off the road to find a hidden movie set. Relatable relationship drama between siblings, friends, and significant others is woven into the high-stakes action in these titles written at a fourth grade reading level. VERDICT The entertaining plots pack a punch and are an excellent choice for striving readers in middle and high school, particularly adrenaline seekers." —School Library Journal
