It’s survival of the strongest in a contemporary, girl-versus-wild middle-grade debut from Fire & Flood author Victoria Scott!

Sloan is a hunter.

So she shouldn’t be afraid of anything. But ever since her mom left the family and she lost hearing in one ear in a blizzard, it’s been hard to talk to people, and near-impossible to go anywhere or do anything without her dad or big sister within eyesight — it makes her too scared to be on her own.

When they leave her home alone for what should only be two nights, she’s already panicked. Then the snow starts falling and doesn’t stop. One of her neighbors is hurt in an accident. And the few people still left in Rusic need to make it to the river and the boat that’s tied there — their only way to get to a doctor from their isolated Alaska town.

But the woods are icy cold, and the wolves are hungry. Sloan and her group are running out of food, out of energy, and out of time. That’s when the wolves start hunting them . . .

 

Excerpt

Fear explodes in my belly as I tear across the cabin floors, checking absurd places for my father and sister. My fingers and toes grow numb, and my breathing comes faster until the walls of our home bow inward. Though my lungs heave in and out, I’m suffocating.

“Dad?” I say, voice wobbly.

Tears sting my eyes as my footsteps grow frantic. “Maren?” I say, as if declaring my sister’s name will force her to appear. “Dad!”

When I hear a sound that must be them, I race to the front of the house. The knob is cold in my palm as I throw open the door. Icy air slaps me in the face, reddening my cheeks. My brain buzzes as I search the world outside. I see snow falling, snow whirling, snow covering everything in sight, but I do not see Dad.

I slam the door as a fresh bolt of anxiety shoots through me, my heart pounding against my rib cage. He couldn’t have left me behind. Not after my mother took that honor first. After everyone left me for five days to fend for myself.

Sloan, you know where we keep the extra ammo?

I drop my head into my hands and pull in three shaky breaths. My mind replays my sister’s frown, my father saying he had packing left to do, not us.

So he got tired of my neediness, did he? Decided it was time to cast his broken bird from the nest?

I grab our radio and hurl it across the room. It crashes against the wall and clatters to the floor. I open my mouth to scream, but a whimper comes out instead. I hate the both of them. Hate them for leaving me. Hate myself for needing their presence.

It’s only after I bend down to grab the radio that I see the note on top of the kitchen table. He must have slipped it underneath the radio so the wind from the door wouldn’t take it.

I lift it up and read—

Sloan,

We’ll be back tomorrow. I knew you didn’t want to go, and thought this could be a good chance for you to remember that you’re perfectly capable without your sister or me nearby. This will be good for you. You’re braver than you think.

The words are perfectly legible in my dad’s handwriting, but I can scarcely read them for the tears in my eyes. He really did it. He really left me.
