Wild River by P. J. Petersen

How can playing a video game give you the skills to survive a river rafting adventure?  This is what Wild River by P. J. Petersen suggests.

Twelve-year-old Ryan agrees to join his older brother Tanner on a river rafting trip.  When something happens to Tanner, Ryan has to figure out how to survive.

A colleague called this a "Let's get boys to read" book.  I think it just might work.

Here is a free printable summary graphic organizer.  Remind students that sometimes the plot is man vs. nature or man vs. self.
