Tunnel In the Sky - Robert A. Heinlein

Teen survival stranding.

A group of young people get sent to a planet in basically an advanced scouts/rovers/venturers sort of scenario to see how they go.

What they didn't count on was getting stuck there for orders of magnitude longer than they expected.

So, they have to work out how to survive as a group, establish leaders and a social structure, and deal with some not so friendly wildlife. Stobor and all that.

Slightly dodgy ending perhaps, but overall a good book.

4 out of 5
