Editorial Reviews

Canadian Book Review Annual
"Wired's fast-paced plot and element of mystery will appeal to readers. Recommended."
Children's Literature
Wired takes readers from one dangerous ski slope to the next, as Sigmund Brouwer ends each chapter with a cliffhanger. Keegan begins a ski run at his fastest pace ever, ending abruptly when he cuts a steep turn and sees a wire directly in his path. If he keeps going at his current pace, he will hit the wire and be sliced in two. Soon Keegan finds himself in the middle of his first romance and at the heart of a dangerous situation involving a ring of people stealing skiing equipment. What should he do? If he tries to solve the case like the Hardy Boy detectives, will he end up endangering his life? At the same time, Keegan must deal with guilt from his inability to act quickly and save his brother's life when both were young children. For readers who enjoy suspense, sports stories, and the thrill of the ride, Wired is sure to be the perfect read during any season of the year. 2005, Orca Book Publishers, Ages 10 up.
—Suzanna E. Henshon, Ph.D.

Read an Excerpt

Halfway down the run I knew I was skiing the best I ever had. If I kept pushing, I would easily stay at number one.

Beneath my helmet, I grinned my grin of fear. And as I cut into a steep turn, I saw it. But couldn't believe it.

Wire. Black wire stretched between two trees at waist height. I was flashing toward it at thirty meters per second. Hitting the wire at that speed would slice me in two.

    Great Story and Action

    This book is really gripping and takes the reader on an adventure of speed and mystery. If you've never been snowboarding this book gives some very accurate descriptions of what it's like to be facing down a mountain.
