Teenaged Jessie has been getting in trouble, so her dad send her to an outdoor camp for teens in similar situations. It was supposed to be a place for Jessie to learn responsibility and respect, but instead she and six other campers strike out on their own to hit the rapids. Jessie's enjoying the adventure until self-proclaimed leader Troy and his henchman, Pug, turn controlling and sadistic, leaving the others to fend for their lives. Jessie's learning responsibility, all right, but it may cost her her life!
This is an exciting adventure story that shows how many kids from the supposed wrong side of the track are actually quite good people. The characters here are great, and its a real page-turner.
