YA book about a young girl, family were adventurers went on an adventure to South America with a full party.

Girl gets parasite (?) in leg and wound becomes infected, she is carried up mountains in a stretcher for part of the journey.

She ends up being ok and the journey continues. Sorry I don't have much more to go on!

Laura, is this fiction or nonfiction?

Can you tell us more about her family - where they live, parents' jobs, travelling with brothers/sisters, etc.?

Laura Money | 1 comments It was definitely fiction. I only remember a Mum and Dad, not any siblings. There were other people in the party, a young man helped her with cleaning the wound.
