Wilderness Warriors

Like many kids today, Tyler and Caitlin were getting into a lot of trouble. And I mean a LOT!

 But their parents had an idea of a way to change their behavior and attitudes and the kids didn't know what it was.

They found out the hard way when their family moved into the wilderness, but would that help to change the kids' attitudes or only make things worse?

I don't want to spoil things by giving away too much of the plot, but I will say this is an exciting book. It's also extremely realistic since it's based on things that actually happened to the author Colleen L. Reece, and to a family she knew.

Kids who read this novel will be carried away into the adventures and I hope they'll also learn about the meaning of courage. As Tyler and Caitlin's Dad said, "Chickens are people who are so afraid of what others think they just go along with the crowd."
