I'm thrilled that one of my favorite authors, Chris Eboch has recently released a new suspense novel. Bandits Peak will definitely appeal to boys who like stories set in the wilderness. It reminds me a lot of Hatchet. Chris does a nice job of putting the main character, Jesse in a position where he has to make tough choices. After discovering dried blood on a rock, Jesse meets strangers hiding in the mountains, he gets drawn into their mystery, and a fast-paced adventure story unfolds.
This unique plot will most certainly appeal to reluctant readers. What I like most about the book is its length. It's long enough to hold your attention, but not at all intimidating. I call these kind of books, Skateboard Books. These kind of books are great confidence builders.
