Surviving Bear Island Reviews and Purchase Information

Publication  Date: March 25,  2015

Publisher: Move Books

After a sea kayaking trip with his father takes a dangerous turn, Tom Parker is stranded on the remote, outer coast of unpopulated Bear Island in the waters of Prince William Sound, Alaska with only a survival kit in his pocket. Desperate to find his father, Tom doesn’t know how long he can survive and must put his survival skills to the test as he fights to reach safety.

Kirkus Reveiws called Surviving Bear Island "a terrific thrill on the page."

From the Alaska Dispatch "Greci has taken a popular if somewhat shopworn theme of juvenile literature -- being marooned -- and given it new vitality. You needn’t be a kid to stay up late reading this one."--David James.

From the Juneau Empire: “Surviving Bear Island is an exciting book outdoors-minded boys and girls both will enjoy. It’s fast paced enough to keep reluctant readers’ attention, but it also avoids oversimplification while communicating real-life dilemmas in understandable ways."--Mary Catharine Martin

From the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner: "Surviving Bear Island is a heart-pounding adventure that both kids and adults will enjoy… It follows its hero through a brilliant coming-of-age the likes of which are unlikely to be found anywhere outside Alaska."--Addley Fannin

Surviving Bear Island is a 2015 Junior Library Guild Selection in the High Interest Middle Category for grades 5 to 8.

Surviving Bear Island: The Cover

I'm totally enjoying working with Eileen Robinson at Move Books and am thrilled to share this book cover, which captures the essence of the story. Surviving Bear Island is due out in March 2015. I hope to share more about the process of getting this story ready for the world in future posts. In the meantime, I hope you are enjoying summer. I’m in summer school working on my Masters in Special Education but am still managing to get out on some hikes. No prolonged adventures like the ones that inspired Surviving Bear Island but hopefully I’ll have a few more of those in the future.

Thanks for stopping by.
