Tara Ellis has written Getting Out Alive: The Autumn Veatch Story on behalf of real-life sixteen-year-old Autumn Veatch, who survived a plane crash wherein two of her family members were killed. Injured and alone, she had to find a way to survive for three days in the Cascade Mountains until she was rescued. An extremely short read at just 36 pages, the story takes you through a day by day account, almost like a journal, of what happened. Included are photos of Autumn as well as a note at the end by author Tara Ellis thanking Autumn for letting her tell Autumn's story.
I cringed when I read the words: "I didn’t know that moving could hurt so bad." Poor Autumn! Anyone who could survive such an ordeal after a plane crash, much less a sixteen-year-old is blessed to be alive. Getting Out Alive: The Autumn Veatch Story by Tara Ellis is vivid in its descriptions of the horrors that Autumn endured, including, " ... the parts of her skin that were still visible were battered with burns, cuts, and bruises." Anyone with a beating heart will be touched by Tara Ellis' Getting Out Alive: The Autumn Veatch Story. Readers will digest this short book in just one sitting, making it a great read for a doctor's waiting room, bedtime, or while commuting to work or school. This book, like Autumn, is not for the timid.
