Overview

When 14-year-old Jason Caldwell goes camping with his scientist parents, all he expects is peace and quiet. But before they arrive, Jason has already been the witness to a crime, and soon he'll find himself lost among the very longleaf pines that his parents hoped to study. Now Jason—and his new forest-smart friend Leah—will have to use all their knowledge of the outdoors to outwit a trio of villains and make it home safe.

A great story and very believable how Jason gets involved with the criminals. Good characters and lots of interesting facts about the Longleaf forest among other things. Moves along quickly and will have you holding your breath at times.

A boy named Jason he is 14 years old. To his parents he is always 14. One day his parents decide to go to Conecuh a national forest in Alabama. Jason witnesses a pretty weird crime and now he is running in the forest for his life. I give this book 1 thumb up because the chapters were too short. This book is way too short and it jumps right into the action. It is a quick read and the text was really boring I suggest if you like a quick read and 1 and a half page chapters then I say go for it. Or if you are like me and think the opposite don¿t read it at all !!
