Can You Survive a Supervolcano Eruption?: An Interactive Doomsday Adventure

We rated this book:


A school trip to Yellowstone National Park ends in disaster as an eruption sends you running for cover. Do you stay or flee? What path do you take? How do you deal with the various obstacles in your way? Most importantly, will you live or die?

The You Choose series of Choose Your Own Adventure disaster books has another interactive catastrophe for young readers, and this time, they ask Can You Survive a Supervolcano Eruption?

Based on solid science and real-life volcanic eruptions, the scenarios here are well-crafted and suitably engaging. It’s a little ridiculous to think that a plane would ever take off under these conditions, but other than that minor misstep, every decision and consequence in the book feels as true to life as possible. The threats are real, and although there are a few lucky breaks lurking around, your survival depends mostly on your own intelligence, resourcefulness, and forethought.

With helpful survival tips, a list for a disaster-preparedness kit, and information on what separates a regular volcano from a supervolcano, this is a learning experience and a Hollywood thriller all in one.
