Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up—In this exciting adventure set in the Canadian Rockies, the action begins with the first sentence and never stops. After arguing with his father, high school student Cam Stewart jumps on his bike and pedals quickly up a trail. A reckless ride is his way of handling his anger at his father, whom he feels constantly badgers him. While on this ride, Cam falls over a cliff, landing on a rock jutting out from the mountain. Badly hurt but still able to move, he tries to get to safer ground. After another error in judgment, he is thrown into a fast-moving waterfall but saved by a young woman who appears to be running away from someone. Becker keeps the plot moving as Cam and Samira struggle to survive the elements, and more. Drug running, human trafficking, and an innocent romance all factor in to making this story a hit with teens, including reluctant readers. Because of its graphic language, this one is meant for older readers who enjoy extreme sports and survival stories.—Tina Martin, Arlington Heights Memorial Library, IL
