When Mike Longridge gets in trouble yet again, he is given a choice: juvenile detention or an outdoor program called Explore. He chooses Explore, but he worries about how he can survive ten months with the hippies and keeners in the program. He is certain he will never get the hang of outdoor activities, and the only person who understands him is the other juvenile delinquent in the program. Will Mike return to his trouble-making ways, or will he finally find a place to belong?

About the Author

Christy Goerzen has been writing since the age of two, when she forced her parents to be the scribes for her long, convoluted stories about sheep and faeries. Passionate about everything to do with reading and writing, Christy holds a Master of Arts in Children's Literature from the University of British Columbia. She has worked as a book reviewer, copywriter, marketing consultant, television writer, bookseller and writing mentor. She is currently the communications manager for the North Vancouver District Public Library, where she is blissfully surrounded by books and gets to work with the coolest children's librarians ever. She loves daydreaming, dancing in the kitchen, wearing costumes, and goofing off with family and friends. Born and raised on the West Coast, Christy lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, with her wonderful husband Joshua and two funny cats.

"You'll leave a lasting impression too," said Rick.

Chris stretched and let out a massive yawn.

"Are we keeping you up, Chris?" Maggie said.

He leaned back, arms crossed. "When does this get fun? So far this whole crock is nothing to get excited about.

Twenty Granola faces spun around and stared at Chris. It's just not worth it to lip off in Explore. I had a feeling Chris didn't care.
