Very good book, much better than I expected (ordered it accidentally).
From the back cover: It wasn't supposed to turn out the way it did.
It's time for Mark's trip through the Boundary Waters, where he will canoe, camp, and fish his way into manhood, just like his father and grandfather before him. Mark has to go with his cousin Randy, who's a diabetic. Randy uses his condition as an excuse not to pull his own weight.
Mark's not surprised when the trip gets off to a rocky start. He figures things will get better. But he's wrong.
Now, Mark and Randy are trapped together in the middle of nowhere, with no one to depend on but each other. Everything that could have gone wrong has.
Getting along doesn't matter anymore. They need to fight to stay alive.
