Having grown up in Tahoe City this was a must read for me. Although this avalanche happened before I was born I had heard about it, just not in detail. The whole book was a little spooky to me when she described all the background stories of everyone involved becasue while reading it you just know some of them are going to die. I thought it was a great explaination of how avalanches happen, how they kill people, and how ski resorts try to control them. I liked how all that lead into telling about the actual avalanche itself and the aftermath. Even though I knew that Anna survived I still found myself very excited and happy when they found her. I'd recommend this book to anyone who has ever skied in the Tahoe area or has an interest in avalanches, it is a quick read and you probably won't be able to put it down!
