I have wondered what it might be like to backpack across a mountain area before, but I have yet to try! Britt and her ex-boyfriend (seems weird, doesn't it?) decide to backpack across the Teton Range. I think the reader should be able to tell that between backpacking and ex-boyfriend...things are going to go wrong. She looks for a place to stay and instead finds a place to hide a body...literally. Britt has to decide how to outsmart her possibly murderous captives while figuring out the motives of Mason, a captor who seems to be overly kind.
I did like Britt's character though I thought she was a bit silly, at times. She doesn't always make the best decisions, she is resourceful, and she is resilient. It seems weird to me to explore feelings for a captor. I don't get why she wants her ex-boyfriend around (though I have no exes so maybe I just don't understand). The other characters were interesting and complex and added to the story. The book does have a very fast-paced plot. Overall, I would recommend this to young adult/teen readers.
