message 1: by Cheryl (new)

Cheryl Deathwatch? Stephen King?
Maybe some teens could read them, but the target audience is older in each case, no?


message 2: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart I feel like this list could use some cleanup? A lot of these books have nothing to do with wilderness survival.

Deathwatch does take place in the wilderness, though.


message 3: by Cheryl (new)

Cheryl Yeah but it's supposed to be wilderness survival for readers who are not adults yet.


message 4: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Deathwatch was pubbed as YA, at least if we're talking about the Robb White book.


message 5: by Cheryl (new)

Cheryl Well alrighty then. Doesn't look right to me, but hey, ok.


message 6: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Of course it's up to Holly! This is her list.


message 7: by Cheryl (new)

Cheryl Of course. :)


message 8: by Andréa (new)

Andréa Deathwatch was assigned reading for me in 7th grade in a Catholic school, so yeah, I'd say MG/YA is appropriate.


message 9: by Cheryl (new)

Cheryl Ok wow then. I guess I should read it and find out.

Pam Withers First Descent/Pam Withers
Tracker's Canyon/Pam Withers
Andreo's Race/Pam Withers
