Changed so he plans a trip back to the Grand Canyon for another rafting adventure and invites his friends Jessie Adam Star Rita and Pug This time Troy promises the trip will not be just about him Jessie who strongly isliked Troy on the last trip has second thoughts about coming but eventually she Stonebrook Cottage (Carriage House, decides not to turnown the adventure of a lifetime Unlike last time Troy acuires the proper National Park permits for this trip After a couple of A Seductive Revenge days the friends learn they are rafting the river in record water levels that are still rising and they are one of the last groups to set offown the Grand Canyon Even the low ranked rapids are a struggle in these water levels and the friends begin to wonder if Lava Falls the steepest navigable rapid in North America will be passable Sometimes in life we have to go through challenging situations This book illustrates how individuals may respond to the same circumstances in California Living different ways I enjoyed Downriver immensely I could not wait to read the seuel River Thunder by Will Hobbs and find out what happened to Jessie and her friends The authorelivered on his promise of high volume excitement Will Hobbs made me feel like I was right there in the roaring rolling rapids with Jessie and her companions I should caution future readers this book has some slow escriptive passages in the middle of the book The book as a whole was a thrilling read and I would recommend this book to anyone who read Downriver and wants to read about the teens adventures I would not recommend reading River Thunder if you have not read Downriver because the author assumes that the reader is already familiar with the characters I have always loved the original book and as complete as the ending was for the original book I couldn t uite figure out how this one would be a continuation of that one So it was a bit of a surprise that the background was basically the same while the cast of characters for the most part also stayed the same although sadly Freddy never showed up Unfortunately this book was too much a repeat of the first including for the majority of the portion of the book the same emotional tension that could be found within the first one And although things turned out right in the end and that there was a bit of a turnaround it just takes away from the story while reminding the reader of the never ending alternatives of the Hatchet books Second of all I was also isappointed that the book almost never mentioned or gave names to the parts of the trip that were included at the beginning of the first trip such as the whitewater where Troy almost flipped his raft before inviting Jess ove. R is the ultimate test Does she have what it takes to row own the mighty Colorado The only way to find out is to get into the raft and set off to face the thundering rapids and the powerful emotions that the river unleashes.
