Booklist Reviews 2015 December #2

Cort has grown up along the Gulf Coast, and hurricanes are a fact of life. He is especially used to the dangers of the wilderness, as his father is a river guide who leads out-of-towners through the swamp on alligator and wild hog hunts. It's not an easy life—Cort's mom left months ago—and Cort struggles with what his future will be if he chooses it for himself. But when the latest hurricane arrives and Cort finds himself trapped in the swamp with two neighbor girls, he has a whole new slew of problems: he has not only a Category 3 storm to deal with but a host of gators, hogs, and snakes all battling it out for dry ground. Cort and his neighbor Liza, perhaps because of their upbringing, both seem several years older than 13, but Key's descriptions of the storm and the swamp are arresting and harrowing. A fast-paced survival story with a resourceful hero, this is Hatchet for the post-Katrina generation, and it's sure to find an audience. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2016 Fall

Informed by Key's extensive personal experiences of hurricanes on the Gulf Coast, this action-packed survival story pits two young teens and a younger sister against the awesome storm--plus the alligators, wild hogs, bears, and snakes also seeking shelter and high ground. Add in life-threatening hypothermia and injuries, and the suspense is unrelenting. The plot is negligible, but readers won't care. Copyright 2016 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

PW Reviews 2015 October #2

Set on Alabama's Gulf Coast, this fast-paced adventure traces 13-year-old Cort's daring attempt to keep two neighbor girls alive during a hurricane. The action begins when Cort's father, a river guide, puts him in charge of taking care of Liza and her younger sister, Francie, at the onset of the storm while their mother is away. Cort feels overwhelmed by the responsibility, but his anxiety turns to terror when Francie ventures outside and goes missing. It's up to Cort to save her, but the water outside is rapidly rising, and even more dangerous than the raging hurricane are the crazed wild animals emerging from the nearby swamp. Pitting humans against nature, Key (Fourmile) brings to life the eerie quality of the Alabama swampland and the hidden dangers that lurk around every corner. Short, cliffhanger chapters will keep even the most reluctant readers engrossed, and Cort's muddled emotions, stemming from his parents' separation and his crush on Liza, add complexity to this gripping novel. Ages 10–13. Agent: Lisa Erbach Vance, Aaron Priest Literary Agency. (Jan.)
