I recall reading this in 5th grade and loving it. First survival book I could recall reading and it made me wonder how I'd handle being stuck in the snow. ( )

You can almost hear the writer correcting himself throughout the writing: this is for dumb teenagers who watch television; make the feelings intense and the language monosyallabic. at least that's what it seemed to me becaquse as i read it, i thoiught: geez. this is simple and silly and kiddish. Nuff said. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440961343, Paperback)

At fifteen, Tony Laporte is what many people would call a throughly spoiled kid. He gets away with a lot because his parents want him to have all the things they never had. But when they surprise him by refusing to let him keep a stray dog he has found, Tony decides to teach them a lesson by running off in his mother's old Plymouth. Driving without a license in the middle of a severe snowstorm, he picks up a hitchhiker named Cindy Reichert, an aloof girl who has always had difficulty forming friendships. To impress Cindy, Tony tries to show off his driving skills and ends up wrecking the car in a very desolated area far from the main highway. After spending precious days bickering with each other and waiting for rescue that never comes, they finally realize that their lives are at stake and they must cooperate to survive. The question is--can they survive?
