Stranded on a 120,000 square mile Kalahari Desert with five teens on an educational safari was definitely not on Sarah’s list of fun. However, her being a daughter of zoologists, and her dad, the guide, missing, she has no choice but to keep them safe and at the least alive. But, that’s a little hard to do when they don’t have enough supplies for six people. And to make this even harder, she has to keep her and the others from tearing each other apart, Together they battle wild snakes and lions, dehydration, hunger, and worst of all the pain of first love. However when they encounter a mercury-made lion, and a deadly, contagious virus lose, Sarah questions everything she knows about the world her parents taught her about. And how most importantly how a lethal secret can take a life of its own.
Kalahari by Jessica Khoury is definitely a page turner, and has an exciting, suspenseful plot. This story is associated with other books from the author of Origin and Vitro concerning the same antagonist of all three books but with different main characters. This anecdote had many styles of conflicts, for example, man vs. man and man vs. nature that certainly helped the story progress more smoothly and faster. The writer told the story from first point of view of a main character that showed what happened to the main character and how the whole book revolves around her. I would definitely recommend this book for action and nature admirers. It did involve a bit of shooting and death but not as much to make it inappropriate. All in all, this book is an edgy, action-packed book for teens and older.
