Kindling Courage

Sometimes you have to assert yourself.

13-year old Adelaide has never been able to stand up to her big brother, Max. But when the two of them get caught in avalanche while on a camping trip, Max and Adelaide find themselves separated from their parents, lost on the side of a mountain, with darkness and the cold closing in.

Will Adelaide follow all of her big brother’s advice, even if she thinks he is dead wrong – even if she thinks, with his plan, they won’t survive the night?
