surprise he found a beautiful yellow Kayak there It must have been meant as his birthday present He was naturally thrilled and had the Kayak, he named Solace, packed for the trip in no time.With help

employees who made routine checks of the area As the days and weeks progressed, all seemed fine until Nate found out that his mother and father had discovered he was missing Not wanting to make life hard for his friends or have them found because of all the people who were looking for him, Nate decided it was time he left He slipped into his Kayak and took off heading down river to find a little island or area where he could lie low for awhile About the time Nate was thinking things were going to work out, a huge storm appeared and struck with such force that he struggled to keep the Kayak from rolling But rolling it did and Nate found himself underwater wondering what to do Then he remembered all this times he had practiced a maneuver designed to right an upside down Kayak Despite all

would help the three stranded the very next day A bit after this, Nate began to get a strange feeling about the three marooned visitors Between conversation, flags changing to the fact that overnight the boats name and origin had been changed, Nate came to the conclusion that these three were trouble.What happens next in the story is exciting, thrilling and downright genius on the part of the author The predicament they put Kat and Nate in is fantastic in it s suspense and the get away of the three only adds a much needed boost of adrenaline to the reader But as they say, all good books must come to an end and luckily for Nate and Kat they are rescued from the island, the coast guard does it s part dealing with Jimmy, Stef and Tanya and Kat gets the medical attention she needs.This is one book I have to be totally honest when I say, I loved it although it is meant for a teenage age group So much so, that I will be purchasing several copies of it as gifts as well as donating a
