An Alaska Dispatch 2015 Favorite Book of the Year
Surviving Bear Island is a
Scholastic Reading Club Selection!
Publication Date: March 25, 2015
"The tension is well-crafted and realistic. Bear Island is a
challenging environment to survive but a terrific thrill on the page."
From the Alaska Dispatch:
"Greci has taken a popular if somewhat shopworn theme of juvenile
literature -- being marooned -- and given it new vitality. You needn’t
be a kid to stay up late reading this one."--David James.
From the Juneau Empire:
“Surviving Bear Island is an exciting book outdoors-minded boys and
girls both will enjoy. It’s fast paced enough to keep reluctant
readers’ attention, but it also avoids oversimplification while
communicating real-life dilemmas in understandable ways."--Mary Catharine Martin
From the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner:
"Surviving Bear Island is a heart-pounding adventure that both kids and
adults will enjoy… It follows its hero through a brilliant
coming-of-age the likes of which are unlikely to be found anywhere
outside Alaska."--Addley Fannin
Surviving Bear Island is a 2015 Junior Library Guild Selection in the High Interest Middle Category for grades 5 to 8.
