Montana-born Rex loves nothing more than to take his kayak out on a river, the faster and more powerful the better. When he gets the opportunity to tackle the well-named El Furioso in southwest Colombia, he is thrilled. He anticipates the river’s challenges, but finds himself in a situation where the real danger is human. In Colombia, he meets Myriam Calambás, an indígena, who has lived along the El Furioso all her life. Though she loves its rushing waters, she dreams of leaving to get an education so that she can help her people. Her dreams, and her very survival, are in the balance when she and Rex are caught up in the clash between paramilitaries, working for rich landowners, and guerillas, who are supposed to be protecting the poor. Pam Withers’ skill at writing about extreme adventures combines with a compelling story about an endangered world and a people struggling for their very right to exist.

Cameron has been in trouble with the law more than once for breaking and entering. After his latest conviction, he's sent to an outdoors program for young offenders rather than a standard juvenile detention facility. There he meets Brianna, a girl who has been caught selling drugs at her school. They bond quickly, and she convinces Cameron to steal two sea kayaks and head off with her into the wilderness of bays and coves of Nova Scotia's Eastern Shore. It's a fearless but ill-timed escape as a hurricane is about to pound the coast. They must use all their courage and newfound survival skills if they are going to make it back to shore alive. And Cameron suspects that Brianna may not be telling him the truth about her real plans.

30 minutes. 30 dangerous paths. YOU choose the path to survive! Readers choose their own path as they dodge obstacles like giant sea monsters, double-crossing villains, hungry great white sharks . . . and maybe even a Canadian Bermuda Triangle! What starts as a boring tour boat experience on the east coast of Canada quickly turns into chaos. It seems your parents have a very valuable map to the locations of some very important objects, and a group of criminal masterminds will stop at nothing to get their hands on it. You've somehow made it off the boat with the map, but then do you suit up for a dive, swim to a nearby island or hitch a ride on a suspicious-looking speedboat? Can you find the treasure in time? And even if you do, will you be able to avoid booby traps, criminals hot on your trail and mutant creatures standing guard? You've got 30 minutes to get to the treasure, stop the criminal masterminds, and save your parents . . . or die trying!
