Kari Rose and her two sisters are visiting their grandmother during spring break when their grandmother decided at 3AM to take a long trip to visit family. Even though the girls know they should not go, they can not convince Granny and they are forced to go with her. Kari’s younger sister is constantly mouthing off to Granny, the old Cadillac breaks down and then Granny can no longer drive so 15 year old Kari has to take over.
While Kari is driving, they drive into a snowstorm and have to sit through a road closure for the night. When they are able to get back on the road, a second blizzard hits and Kari pulls off the road and follows a snow plow. They find themselves at an abandoned restaurant and lodge to wait out the storm. Kari goes through the kitchen and finds food to make and they are able to stay warm by the fireplace. While staying at the lodge the family pull together to survive. Kari’s younger sister apologizes for the way she talks to others.
I enjoyed reading this book. There were several parts of the book that were very funny. But for the most part I just wanted to keep reading to see what was going to happen next. There is a little bit of romance in the story with Kari and the young man at a hotel as well. The part I enjoyed most was while they were at the lodge. The love they showed to each other and how they took care of Granny was enjoyable to read.
Any one who enjoys reading adventure stories will enjoy this book. It is a good clean book that could be enjoyed by youth and adults alike. There are some parts of the book where the better proof reading could have been used but it did not disrupt the story.
