Katherine Rundell has again brought her inimitable style and perspective to deliver a story of adventure and transformation, adrenaline and heartbreak. Four children survive a plane crash in the wilds of the Amazon and band together to find their way home. But this is more than just a survival story; it is a thriving story full of hard choices and soft judgements. Oh, and did I mention the baby sloth!!

— Summer at Laurel Village
