Blizzard!: A Survive! Story

by Jake Maddox
Illustrated by Sean Tiffany

They were supposed to be attending a volunteer dinner in their honor, but instead, Owen and Gray have been stranded in the middle of a raging blizzard. Once the storm subsides, the boys decide to try to find their way back to civilization. But with no food or water, freezing temperatures, and no help in sight, both boys begin to lose hope. Can they make it safely home, or will the frozen elements become too much for them to handle?

"Fans of Survivor will cheer for this hi/lo series. In Blizzard!, Owen and Gray, two teen community-service volunteers, become stranded on the highway en route to their awards dinner. Struggling through deep snow, they must use their combined knowledge (and will) to stay alive until rescue comes. In Shipwreck!, Skylar, Gabby, and Miles survive the sinking of a whale-watching boat only to find themselves stranded on an inflatable raft in the middle of the ocean. The teens endure blistering sun, storm swells, and a shark attack before being rescued. The realistically portrayed teens in both books don’t exhibit unreasonable amounts of survival knowledge, which makes the story (and tension) believable. Mangalike black-and-white cartoons highlight key scenes and create interest. The oversize font and plenty of white space surrounding the short, engaging paragraphs make these books perfect for older struggling readers. A brief glossary, a true-life survival story, discussion questions, and writing prompts round out the books." - School Library Journal

Who is Jake Maddox? Athlete, author, world-traveler – or all three? He has surfed in Hawaii, scuba-dived in Australia, and climbed the mountains of Peru and Alaska. His books range from the most popular team sports to outdoor activities to survival adventures and even to auto racing. His exploits have inspired numerous writers to walk in his footsteps – literally! Each of his stories is stamped with teamwork, fair play, and a strong sense of self-worth and discipline. Always a team-player, Maddox realizes it takes more than one man (or woman) to create a book good enough for a young reader. He hopes the lessons learned on the court, field, or arena and the champion sprinter pace of his books can motivate kids to become better athletes and lifelong readers.
