Thirteen-year-old Jesse Rodriguez has learned everything he needs to know about skydiving by working at the small airport near his home. As soon as he turns sixteen, he'll make his first jump. His new friend, Robin, is training to skydive, even though she really prefers photography to parachutes. One day, while visiting Jesse at the airstrip, she unintentionally takes some pictures of several drug dealers disembarking from a small plane. Suddenly, the two teenagers find themselves on a flight that may force them to make their first jump much sooner than they expect. There's plenty of action, suspense, and fascinating information about skydiving in this journey into the Gary Paulsen World of Adventure. In each of his books, the Newbery Award-winning author continues to respond to young listeners' requests for exciting tales of challenge and danger.
