    1. High adventure. Quick read. Little character development covered up by one challenge after another from mother nature. Action and romance. A book for both boys and girls.


    2. I thought that it was a good book. I might have thought that it was a skiing story but it was mostly an adventure and action story.


    3. Avalanche has all the battles against Mother Nature that you would expect, but it also packed quite an emotional punch. After an avalanche kills one member of the group and leaves another seriously injured, the group of teenagers must make quick decisions about how to find help. At times, the book was a little over-the-top. Pretty much everything that can go wrong, does. The survivors are smoked out of the deserted cabin they find; cell phones are broken or lost; they are attacked by various ani [...]


    4. I can confidently say that the novel, Avalanche by Melinda Braun, is one of the most thrilling stories I've ever read. This book has it all: adventure, action, romance, and even suspense. Avalanche tells the story of the main character, Matt. Matt has just decided to spend spring break with his best friend, Tony, in Colorado after the scheduled trip to Florida with his father was canceled. Matt and Tony planned to stay with Tony's brother, Sid, who's in college and lives in Colorado. Sid pro [...]


    5. Avalanche by Melinda Braun was an action-packed book that had me constantly turning the page. It begins with two high school boys, Matt and Tony, arriving in Colorado for a spring break ski trip with one of the boys' older brother, Sid, whom they accompany to a college party where their ski trip is planned out. Though it is told from the third person, the story focuses on Matt, one of the two high schoolers who is only there because his dad bailed on him and whose personal life is revealed throu [...]


    6. Avalanche is a book that will be enjoyed by both boys and girls. It is filled with adventure, action, arguments, nature, and boy-girl problems. I really like how Braun describes the struggles of the characters. She does this by switching the point of view throughout the book. The action is believable, and she does a good job of drawing the reader into the peril the characters face. I really like how Braun made this book personal. The main character is named after her husband; several of the othe [...]


    7. Overall, the story is good. I loved the descriptive language throughout and the development of the characters as the situations in the book grow from bad to worst. The ending was also sweet. I am only rating it three stars, however, because I feel like certain parts of the book were predictable. This is a book about survival and I was expecting more surprises from the plot, or at least to be taken aback at times by what happened. I can only recall one time when I was really surprised by the plot [...]


    8. I abandoned this book (I never abandon books) didn't want to waste my time.y YA material with underage drinking and pot use within the first 30 pages. Calling other characters offensive names, etc.


    9. I don't see how anybody survived this scenario. Author did a great job of making the reader feel the cold, pain and desperation. I just thought it was a little wordy and skipped over some of the details as I read.



    10. Drug references and profanity. I was between a two star and three, when the kids calling a teenage boy "mister" repeatedly made the decision for me.


    11. Stung by yet another snub by his professor father, this time because Dad’s 28 year old girlfriend is having pregnancy issues, Matt is eager to go from Des Moines to Colorado on a school break. Smart and having an eclectic mind, He’s not wise in the ways of survival or girls, two areas where skills will soon have plenty of value. He and his best friend Toby have been invited by Toby’s older brother Sid to join a group of college age kids on a backcountry skiing adventure. It’s an interest [...]


    12. Excellent outdoor adventure book to recommend to young adult, male readers or girls who like this type of fast-paced story.


    13. This book is pretty fast-paced. I had read Stranded by the same author, so I was willing to give this a try. Braun does a pretty good job with her characters, and the plot is fast-paced. Pretty much everything that can go wrong, does. The author doesn't shy away from death or dangerous situations. I thought the pages from the mountain lion's point of view were unnecessary and didn't add to the narrative. I read this pretty quickly, so I may have missed some detail, but there were a couple of tim [...]


    14. zipped through this YA novel while waiting for a doctor's appointment. Not bad, just not very good, either. Thought the author left the reader hanging a bit (wait, maybe there's a sequel!)


    15. Sadly, this was a great premise ruined by hopeless melodrama. The characters were underwritten, the increasingly regular scenes of peril too many and too quickly resolved and the scenes from the POV of a mountain lion unnecessary and disruptive in terms of narrative. However, there were glimpses of great writing amid the dross - particularly in the scenes where characters see their lives flashing before their eyes - and the dialogue is believable. Sadly, this promise does not make up for a prett [...]


    16. E ARC from Edelweiss Above the TreelineThis was more of a Young Adult book. I did appreciate that it took into account the kind of things that boys like-- the best friend throwing up in the airplane, the main character angry that he couldn't spend spring break with his father, adventure in the mountains. It just got off to a bit of a slow start for middle school.


    17. Quick read but it made me think? Would I be able to survive in an catastrophic event? Sadly, I think the answer would be no!
