Teens love the great adrenaline rush of medical dramas and their graphic accounts of life or death situations. In Buried Alive, a teen paramedic is trapped in a collapsed building, and another breaks all the rules to rescue him.


Buried alive is the second first book of Distress Call 911 by Diane Carey and was actually the very first English authored book I have read. I was just so bored and the rest follows. I actually had 3 English books to read from during that time but I settled on this one for it’s the thinnest of the three. Haha, lamest excuse I would say. But I was glad I did. This book is a great read!

The story was all about a group of young individuals who are enrolled in a yellow jacket training program. A program that trains young individuals into learning first aid and dealing with emergencies. Meanwhile, the building was collapsed leaving yellow jacket Gordon McKittrick and 7 other people trapped in the flooding basement. Some of them are seriously injured and need medical attention quickly. But Gordon was only a kid who is trained to do first aid and not a doctor.

It was a pretty interesting story. I remembered how much I enjoyed it. I even asked for another round and read the remaining 2 books. There were some unknown terms in the book but overall, you can read it straight for a few more minutes without looking at the dictionary.

So if you’re sick and tired of reading other genres, this book is probably a great choice to read!
