Note: We went to play the game at scholastic.com/horizon, but couldn't figure out where the "jump" key was to get over the obstacles, nor did we see any explanation of how to play the game--very lame.

Horizon by Scott Westerfeld is a mystery about eight teens who seem to be the only survivors of a very strange plane crash in the arctic. Four of them were on their way to a robotics soccer championship in Japan. The other 500 passengers on the plane are missing. The teens find themselves in a jungle where strange things happen.
This is an interesting, fun read that leaves you with questions at the end. Apparently this is only the first book in a series of seven. It has adventure and lots of mystery in it that made me want to keep reading. I was not satisfied with the ending because it only answered one of the questions that was raised--where are they? I think kids would really like this one a lot!
