Description

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.

AUDIOBOOK I enjoyed this book..to a point. It's a YA thriller but ended up being a bit more deadly then the tone implied.... 6 teenagers are in an SUV bound for a junior class ski trip in the mountains. A shortcut causes an unplanned stop and they are stranded in a blizzard. What comes next is a mix of tense moments, young adult discussions, and breakfast club -like arguments. If you like a cold thriller, this is a book for you! Recommended for YA enthusiasts and humans vs nature lovers. #NetGalley #SkiWeekend

𝘎𝘳𝘪𝘱𝘱𝘪𝘯𝘨, 𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘯𝘴𝘦 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘴𝘶𝘴𝘱𝘦𝘯𝘴𝘦𝘧𝘶𝘭! Don’t you love to go into a story blind and end up hooked since page one? Just wow, this is one of those books that it’s impossible to put down. A story about survival, friendship and family that was fast-paced, twisty, emotional and addictive! Thank you NetGalley and Blackstone Publishing audiobooks for this ALC.

The good thing about yesterday was finishing this ALC ..it was spooky and terrifying and left me thankful I live in a state with no snow. #skiweekend @rektokross Publish date: 10/26 #superthankful🙏🏻 to @blackstonepublishing @netgalley for my gifted copy. 4.5⭐⭐⭐⭐🌠 YA Thriller Five reasons to jump and read this 1.The author really has you thinking in the beginning a serial killer was going to slash them all..the suspense was perfect. 2. We had a Breakfast Club assortment for the cast of characters, where the cheerleader and the Jock were typical in the beginning , they showed the greatest development of character. Survival brought out the best in them. 3. I have not held my breath in a YA thriller ever. . This author may have been working with teens under 18 but blood, death and terror was palpable. You felt the hunger, the cold, and the final scenes I cried with the main character. 4. Much like CoHo ..this author broke your heart and put it back together (almost) . You wanted to hug your significant other or kids at the end of the book. 5. This is a perfect start of winter/ end of spooky season book!! There were many extra things the author unpacked like anorexia, mental health issues , and the oldest child syndrome which almost never gets brought up . Sam felt responsible for her brother, she needed to protect him, and when she couldnt it was crushing. Sam learned much about humanity and life in this trip and what was most important is living each moment to the fullest. This book makes the reader sit back and really evaluate what's important in the right now, because maybe that is all we have. One of the best YA thrillers of the year. #bookstalove #bookishfriendsunite #bookobssesedgirl #bookingtogether #bookaddicted📚 #bookstagrammers #bookcommunity #igbooks #igreads #ireadya #yathriller #bookishfollowtrain #bookreviewer #advancedreaderscopy #netgalley #skiweekend
