Listening to Tavia Gilbert perform this psychological suspense is engrossing. Twelve-year-old Karin is lost in Hoge Veluwe Forest, a Dutch National Park. Gilbert captures the youthful timbre of the girl's voice, and her pitch and intensity change as Karin faces drug dealers, wolves, hunger, disorientation, and, worst of all, betrayal by a once trusted figure. Other expertly depicted characters include her mother, Grace, whose story is also told, and Martijn, the stepdad from hell. This audio experience will acquaint listeners with the Dutch scouting practice of dropping youngsters in the forest. In this audiobook, the camping experience goes terribly wrong, but it makes for exciting listening. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2021]
