Award-winning author and former schoolteacher Jonathan Friesen has a knack for crafting exciting stories teenagers want to read. Rush features 18-year-old Jake King, an adrenaline junkie who jumps at the chance to join an elite group of firefighters who rappel into wildfires. Known as the Immortals, these heroes have a habit of dying young. But Jake's sort-of girlfriend thinks there's more to the Immortals' high death rate than bad luck.
"The up-tempo plot keeps the story interesting, and the stunts keep the reader on the edge of their seats."—VOYA
