Fighting wild fires
Overall rating
Writing Style
When Kerry's shin splints keep her from participating in Irish dancing competitions, her mother pulls strings to get her a job in Northwestern Ontario with the forestry department, scouting locations for cabins. She works with Yvette, who speaks French and has worked in the past. The two are the only girls among a lot of rough men, and when forest fires break out, they have to spend a lot of time working in remote locations. This is dangerous enough, but the girls also uncover a mystery that puts them in danger.
Good Points
With all of the forest fires in the west, this was very interesting. I liked Kerry and Yvette; Kerry, who seems to have it pretty much together at home, is completely out of place in the wildernerss, but Yvette, who has a lot of street smarts and dresses in a rather sexy way, is also very intelligent and used to being in the wild. I also found out a lot about northwest Ontario, including a little bit about the Metis people.
