One year after a random shooting changed their family forever, Nora and her father are still struggling with the trauma that has caused them to withdraw from the world. To celebrate her birthday, the two are exploring a slot canyon deep in the Arizona desert. Having grown up rock climbing and hiking through deserts, Nora is well versed in survival skills, but when they reach the bottom of the canyon, the unthinkable happens. A flash flood rips across their path, sweeping away her father and all of their supplies. With no idea whether her dad is dead or alive and struggling to survive while keeping the demons of the last year at bay, Nora must conquer her fears and summon all of her strength and knowledge if she is to make it out of the canyon alive. This story in verse of forty eight harrowing hours in a young girl’s struggle to survive punctuated by flashbacks of the year she can’t forget will keep readers on the edges of their seats!
