Stranded a book by Jeff Probst and Chris Tebbetts

Survivor fans! Jeff Probst wrote a book! besides being the Host of the Hit  Reality Show Survivor, and also having his own Talk Show,now Jeff can add Author to his many credits.Is there anything Jeff can't do?I love Survivor and can't wait to get this book.My 3 kids are all excited about reading it also.

Jeff wrote this book for kids But Adults are loving it also.I remember an interview he did (see below) he said he had the idea for this book,when kids who where  fans of Survivor where now actually growing up and playing on  Survivor.

EW: Bonus Question That is Not Really a Question: Big week for you, sir! Your book Stranded just hit stores as well. Give us one reason to go spend our hard earned money on it.
PROBST: STRANDED is for middle grade kids, probably 8-12 years old.  Though I’m hearing 7 year olds are reading it) It’s Survivor for kids.  Mom and Dad get married, each bringing two kids into the marriage.  They send the kids on a weekend sailing trip with their favorite Uncle Dex so they can “get to know each other.”  But a sudden storm shipwrecks them and they end up STRANDED on an island alone.  No adults.  It’s the first of a trilogy.  So far the early reads have been good and after only a few days we are already top 10 in children’s new releases.  I say thank you to all of the loyal survivor parents and young Survivor fans!  Oh – one other reason to give it a shot – we priced it to be very affordable at $6.99!! Even cheaper through Scholastic book club!


Taken from the overview page:

A family vacation becomes a game of survival!
It was supposed to be a vacation—and a chance to get to know each other better. But when a massive storm sets in without warning, four kids are shipwrecked alone on a rocky jungle island in the middle of the South Pacific. No adults. No instructions. Nobody to rely on but themselves. Can they make it home alive?
A week ago, the biggest challenge Vanessa, Buzz, Carter, and Jane had was learning to live as a new blended family. Now the four siblings must find a way to work together if they're going to make it off the island. But first they've got to learn to survive one another.


Book 2 will be out in June.

I hope with the success of this book Series,that we will see a movie!
