Adventure on Nemesis Mountain

I'm really excited to be able to introduce you to this new book by Annie McMahon.  I met Annie in my first critique group, and this book was the first of hers I read.  So it's a huge thrill to see it finally in print, and to help her out with her blog tour.

When nature-loving Emilio and athletic Hans get lost in the forest during a fifth grade field trip, they have no choice but to put their differences aside to survive the harsh wilderness.

Emilio would rather eat a slimy worm than miss the fifth grade field trip. Nemesis Mountain must be full of rare leaf specimens and bugs for his collection. Besides, he needs a break from the playground and Hans’s nonstop teasing. His excitement is squashed when he gets lost in the woods with his worst enemy.
Alone in the forest, the two boys battle to survive the harsh wilderness, facing challenges that will change their lives forever.

  1. This is a fantastic book :) I saw it today for the first time in real life when I held a copy! All the way over here in England! But it wasn't mine! It was my bosses! Long story :D

    Good luck, Annie :) Great post, Kate!

  2. Thanks for stopping by, Kurt! And thank you, Kate, for all your support. You helped me a lot in our critique group with your feedback. You're one of the few who reviewed every single chapter of my book!

  3. This would be a horrible experience at least at first. To be lost as a kid with your bully. you already have some fear towards that person and now there is no one to keep them in line. Book sounds really interesting, I'll have to check it out. Matt @ JC's Book Haven.

  4. Thanks, Matt! I hope you enjoy my story :)
