The Courage Test

Written by James Preller

Will has no choice. His father drags him along on a wilderness adventure in the footsteps of legendary explorers Lewis and Clark– whether he likes it or not. All the while, Will senses that something about this trip isn’t quite right. Along the journey, Will meets fascinating strangers and experiences new thrills, including mountain cliffs, whitewater rapids, and a heart-hammering bear encounter.

This book was okay for me. It seemed to be lacking character depth. It just sort of fell flat for me. It is a quick read that might appeal to a reluctant reader.
