Book Description

March 1 2011 Orca Soundings
Since his girlfriend dumped him, Jayden has been avoiding school-and life in general. When his eccentric uncle Mel invites him to help with his biology research at an Australian university, he figures he has nothing to lose. Once he arrives, he discovers Mel is obsessed with finding a new species of lizard and is determined to be the first to discover it. Unfortunately, this means an expedition into the scorching desert heat of the Australian outback...with the increasingly paranoid Mel and an unfriendly biology student named Natalie. Then disaster strikes, and Jayden and Nat find themselves many miles from civilization fighting for their survival.

Product Description

Review

"Compliments to Stevenson who has succeeded in giving readers a vivid picture...A successful, fast-paced adventure story. Recommended." (CM Magazine 2011-01-21)

"Well-written and intriguing, I read Outback in one sitting. The characters are very well-developed for such a short novel, and I found myself rooting for them at every turn...A fast-paced and enjoyable read for all, but I would definitely recommend this novel for reluctant readers or low level readers." (Resource Links 2011-02-01)

"This fast-paced story gives enough descriptive detail to the give the reader a real feel for the scenery…Reluctant readers will gobble it up." (Tri-State YA Book Review Committee 2011-09-01)

"Though short and straightforwardly told, the characters and plot are engaging and it should be a hit with the Hi/Low audience." (Puget Sound Council for Reviewing Children's Media 2011-05-01)

"There's...drama and excitement [in this] survival tale." (The Horn Book Guide 2011-09-01) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

We watch helplessly as the jeep burns. And I realize how completely screwed we are. Since his girlfriend dumped him, Jayden has been avoiding school-and life in general. When his eccentric uncle Mel invites him to help with his biology research at an Australian university, he figures he has nothing to lose. Unfortunately, this means an expedition into the scorching desert heat of the Australian outback…with the increasingly paranoid Mel and an unfriendly biology student named Natalie. Then disaster strikes… and Jayden and Nat find themselves many miles from Civilization-with no vehicle, no means of communication and a limited supply of water-fighting for their survival.
