Reviews - What do customers think about Disaster In The Yukon (AirQuest Adventures V3)?
could have been better Oct 5, 2009
This book is an action adventure story about a young boy and his dad who must dodge one storm after another as they rush to acquire medicine that is desperately neededd for a young diabetic named Suzie Que. Centered on the Yukon in Alaska, it was apparent that the author spent a lot of time researching Alaska and blizzard survival. It was interesting to hear about some of the basic "preparations" Alaskans might take just to go on a three to four hour drive as the reality of getting stranded in a storm weighed upon their minds.
This book contains more "boyfriend-girlfriend" inferences than I would have liked to see in a Christian fiction book for "tweens". I think the story would have been stronger if this aspect was not included. I also would have liked to see the main characters in the book demonstrate a closer, more personal relationship with God.
However, it was clean in both language and content and may appeal to boys.
