From the Emmy-Award winning host of Survivor, Jeff Probst
with Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life co-author Chris Tebbetts
comes a brand new family adventure series!

A family vacation becomes a game of survival!
When Vanessa and Buzz's dad marries Carter and Jane's mom, the kids have a hard time getting along. Their parents decide to send them on a sailing trip with Uncle Dex so they can get to know one another better. Little do they know that whether or not they come together as a family will soon be a matter of life or death....

Without warning, a storm hits, separating the kids from Uncle Dex and shipwrecking them on a deserted island. Now the four siblings must somehow find a way to work together if they want to make it off the island. But first, they've got to learn to survive one another.

Editor reviews

Stranded by Jeff Probst was an interesting read. The premise was interesting but how the story carried out was not enough to fully capture my attention and make me fall in love with this survival novel.

While Jeff Probst is trying to portray the stakes as high, that is not the way Stranded came across. I was looking for a fast paced, high energy survival story and instead what I got was a very mediocre story. So basically I loved the premise and idea of Stranded, but the execution was just a bit off for me.

The characters were a lot of fun, particularly Jane with her camera and recording everything to report back to her elementary school. I loved seeing the team work they all had to put forth, even when they didn't want to necessarily get along.

All in all, Stranded was a neat book, but for me it just lacked a bit in a few major areas. Those who love a good survival story will most likely enjoy this one.
