This summer the Stanley sisters and the Miles boys are excited to hike together again, and now they have the unique opportunity to help two of their ranger friends with an outdoor program in the beautiful Montana mountains.
Marlee has always considered herself a willing follower. Give her a direction and she’s happy to help. Her older sister Ellie is a natural leader, and Marlee is content in her role as assistant.
Marlee and her sisters have been assigned to help with Ranger Rose’s team, and they are savoring the adventure. But in a heartbeat while the group is divided by a few hundred feet, fire breaks out between Ranger Rose and Marlee’s group. In this enthralling finale to the Off the Itinerary series, Marlee must face her fears with courage that only God can provide.

This is an action packed novel for youth. It will especially appeal to those who like out door activities like hiking. I liked the additional information included such as about trees and parasites and forest fires. So there is plenty of adventure in the novel and its informative too.
Marlee is a good lead character. She learns a great deal about relationships and being a leader in this adventure. I liked that she realizes leading is more about being willing to serve rather than having lots of experience. She learns to rely on her faith in God too.
Adventurous teen leaders will like this novel. It contains plenty of action, insights into faith and relationships and just a hint of teen romance. Potential readers should know that the plot includes a forest fire.
My rating: 4/5/stars.
About the Author
More from Liz
After sending my five teenage characters through an avalanche and subjecting them to a lunatic with handcuffs (during a flash flood), I decided that a wildfire was the next disaster they should endure. From a plot perspective, a wildfire allows for much excitement; but I especially love the character refinement that takes place as my cast faces this natural disaster in the finale to my Off the Itinerary series. I hope your family will find encouraging entertainment in Ablaze.
