My rating for this book is a 4 because the books plotline was great but this book didn't stand out that much and the plotline was confusing at some points throughout the book.
This book is based around the character Nora. Her birthday is the day that her mom died in a public shooting. Exactly a year after her mom dying she and her dad head into a canyon in the Arizona desert. A flood happens which takes away her father. Nora then has to survive all by herself in the hot desert and has to find a way to save herself and her dad.

I would recommend the reading level of this book to about 8-12 year olds. Overall, I would somewhat widely recommend this book.
