While camping with her family on a remote island, five-year-old Anna awakes in the night to the sound of her mother screaming. A rogue black bear, 300 pounds of fury, is attacking the family's campsite, pouncing on her parents as prey. At her dying mother's faint urging, Anna manages to get her brother into the family's canoe and paddle away. But when the canoe dumps the two children on the edge of the woods, and the sister and brother must battle hunger, the elements, and a dangerous wilderness, we see Anna's heartbreaking love for her family - and her struggle to be brave when nothing in her world seems safe anymore. Told in the honest, raw voice of five-year-old Anna, this is a riveting story of love, courage, and survival.

Narrator brought the story alive.

Not my favorite book. The child's voice, while an interesting perspective on the story got old after awhile. There was repetition and because of the way the child's thoughts were portrayed it was sometimes hard to understand what she was seeing or experiencing.

It is an interesting way to tell the story and the childlike narration and thought was well done.
