    I loved reading this book. I was hooked from paragraph one. We meet our hero, Josie, just after she's begun her adventure in a rented RV in Alaska with her two children.

    Great story, a family's escape into the unknown. The characters of Josie and her children are engagingly well drawn, and there is genuine suspense in every encounter. I read it in two sessions. Brilliant.
