On a school trip to the Everglades she didn’t want to attend, freshman Sarah sneaks away with Andy on his father’s airboat for a picnic in the Everglades. A quick trip turns into the adventure of a lifetime when the boat sinks 10 miles in and all they have is a backpack, one can of insect repellant, a Swiss Army Knife, a can of Spam, a bottle of Gatorade, and an orphaned mallard duckling named Teapot. Together, they have to battle through lightning storms and starvation in a land where they’re in the middle of the food chain and one snakebite could mean death. An excellent coming of age story, Sarah and Andy have to face not only what nature can throw at them but also their biggest enemy: themselves. They persevere through dangerous weather and waters and learn that there is more to life than being the only poor black kid at a rich white school or the adopted son of a con who can’t let go of his Confederate heritage. Highly recommended for teens who have started a new school, transferred, or just like reading adventure stories where, if they’re not careful, it could happen to them.
