"Those Who Wish Me Dead" by Michael Koryta Recommended by ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

We both liked this one!

Those Who Wish Me Dead by Michael Koryta is about a young teen boy who finds a dead man in a body of water near his home.  He also sees the guys who did it and they him—the hunt is on!  The bad guys are after the kid to kill him and the good guys are desperate to find him to protect him.  This is good stuff, a real page turner.  I found myself thinking along with the people involved in the hunt.  Enjoyed it a lot!

Those Who Wish Me Dead by Michael Koryta is not only a suspenseful novel but an educational one as well.  Jace Wilson, a 14-yr.-old boy gets into big trouble when he witnesses a murder.  Instead of going into a witness protection program, his parents send him to a Montana wilderness camp instead.  Ethan Serbin takes troubled boys into the mountains and helps them.  The evil brothers who committed the murders then hunt down Jace to kill him!  This is a gripping book that kept me turning pages and one I was anxious to get back to reading with a big surprise along the way. 

There are lots of tips in this book related to how to survive in the wilderness, orienteering and tracking that I found interesting.  I liked this book very much and recommend it to anyone who enjoys suspense and adventure.
