Book Review

It’s a story of six children who went missing in the jungles of Arunachal Pradesh without any gear, food, or telecommunication devices. The thirteen was the oldest and six years was the youngest in which two are boys four are girls.

They were vacationing in Tawang, a remote military base near the Indo-China border. They planned a picnic, while the picnic did not happen, but life has planned something for them. Which turn their life three sixty degrees.

They were pushed to the limits of their physical and emotional endurance. They come close to die twice. And it was battle against teens vs Nature, it’s a survival story of teen aginst nature jungle. The book takes you to the stunning beautiful yet treacherous terrain of Tawang.

The book gives the thrilling experience with adventure, life-death, fear, loss, dens-forest, nature, and many more.
