Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Jake and Peter's latest adventure finds them working as wake board instructors in a remote, and tension-ridden, community. The series author is an experienced journalist and outdoor enthusiast well able to keep readers on the edge of their seats.

Synopsis:

Pam's books have wide appeal to boys and girls, to avid and reluctant readers, to teens and to younger children who are looking for a challenging high-interest book. -The Bookmark

Since the Take It to the Xtreme series was launched, 15-year-old best friends Jake and Peter have survived whitewater rapids, an avalanche, a forest fire, movie stunt work, killer surf waves, perilous rock-climbing, and much, much more.

In this latest installment of the series, Jake and Peter are junior instructors at a noisy wakeboard school that is attempting to share a remote lake with a community of save-the-Earth society dropouts (otherwise known as hippies). Jake and Peter love performing their own tricks behind a powerboat driven by the school's founder, a macho young wakeboard fanatic known as the party animal. Then, Peter decides to encourage the wild streak in a rebellious hippie girl across the lake. She runs away to hide in a nearby abandoned sawmill, only to discover it's not as abandoned as it looks.

Community tensions soon erupt — and the boys get more than they bargained for.
