Lost in the River of Grass

Lost in the River of GrassLost in the River of Grass by Ginny Rorby
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was an awesome adventure through the Everglades in Florida. What starts out as a typical science class field trip for Sarah, the new girl in her school and an "outsider", ends up being a trip she may never forget. Sarah is afraid of lots of swamp critters, like the cottonmouth snakes and alligators that abound in the Everglades. But she really hates being invisible, or worse, being made fun of because she is in her new school on a swimming scholarship. So when a cute boy shows up at the camp and offers to take her on a picnic on his airboat, she jumps at the chance. Well, things go terribly wrong on this picnic. Sarah and Andy are stranded in the Everglades with no boat, no way out, and no one knowing where they are. Lots of great details about the wildlife and environment of the Glades. Andy and Sarah are wonderful characters, with real flaws and strengths. A great read!
