His dad pulls strings and gets him into the forest firefighters' ring - one of the riskiest jobs around. Jake is pumped, until everything he's cared about is put on the line. Fast-paced and full of action.
Jake is an interesting character and his need for thrills fuels this story. Lots of things happen here, but it is all exciting. Ending wraps up almost everything.
I thought the dialogue was pretty forced. Every page is an adventure, or a close encounter with a girl. The end was the saving grace. Almost gave this book two stars until I read the ending.

The book opens with him climbing a fifty foot cliff with no rope. The call to action is him hanging from two fingers over a 60ft drop, and ends with a one-hundred foot water fall jump, but it is not what it seems. While reading this I kept thinking back to another Jonathan Friesen book that I had read previously: The protagonist Sam also a senior escapes his "twitches by running.
He runs and feels at peace just as Jake does death defying stunts to feel at peace. Both feel alone and as if they cannot relate to their parents.
Both stories are quick reads with a well-developed plot but difficult to read structure. I often had to reread sections of the text because it was unclear the first time what the author was trying to say.
I whole heartedly enjoyed both novels but at times felt that the dialogue was below my reading level and know that in the future I would seek out a novel with more well defined characters, setting, and purpose.
At times the protagonist just seemed like a cocky, stupid, immature jerk that had zero swag, game and respect for elders. He acted impulsively and stupidly endangering the lives of others, not heading the mentor's advice, and not thinking through the situation.
All common motifs and themes where they are flaws of the main character that are then eradicated later! I think that mostly boys ages would enjoy this book.Watch Buceta loca de tesao video caseiro - free porn video on MecVideos.
