Six teens, one dog, a ski trip gone wrong
Sam is dreading senior ski weekend and having to watch after her brother and his best friend, Gavin, to make sure they don’t do anything stupid. Again. Gavin may be gorgeous, but he and Sam have never gotten along. Now they’re crammed into an SUV with three other classmates and Gavin’s dog, heading on a road trip that can’t go by fast enough.
Then their SUV crashes into a snowbank, and Sam and her friends find themselves stranded in the mountains with cell phone coverage long gone and temperatures dropping. When the group gets sick of waiting for rescue, they venture outside to find help - only to have a wilderness accident leave Sam’s brother with a smashed leg and, soon, a raging fever. While the hours turn to days, Sam’s brother gets sicker and sicker, and their food and supplies dwindle until there isn’t enough for everyone. As the winter elements begin to claim members of the group one by one, Sam vows to keep her brother alive.
No matter what.
Filled with twists, secrets, and life-changing moments, Ski Weekend is a snow-packed survival thriller featuring a diverse cast of teens that will appeal to fans of One of Us Is Lying and I Am Still Alive.

Enjoyable YA Thriller
I saw this advertised as a horror novel and while the scenario the plot is based on is scary, I would classify this more as a YA Thriller. It was an enjoyable performance and I enjoyed the story as well. It reminded me a little of some of the old Christopher Pike novels where some religious aspect is present but not so overbearing as to be classified as a religious novel in my opinion. General hope and faith are brought up a few times which to me was fine, especially considering the scenario of the story. Character development was ok, although I wish there had been a little more depth to each character from somewhere other than the mc's perspective. Overall, a very enjoyable story.
This was not a thriller, it was a teenager’s story of how to survive when nobody has ever taught them basic survival skills.
These were kids from affluent families and high achieving schools and if these 17yos are even remotely accurate of today’s world, we are going to be in a much greater crisis in the world than ever before.
My 6yo has more wisdom than these kids. Wow I would pass on this one.
