Critical Praise

"Hyde is well qualified to guide her readers through this... journey... Her prose is vigorous and natural, her perception subtle, her voice and those o f her characters all-American."

—Liesl Schillinger, The New York Times Book Review

"Engaging... Hyde has a keen eye for social dynamics, but she’s just as good at keeping the adrenaline pumping... She expertly evokes the thrill and terror of rapid-running... A bracing ride."

—Kim Hubbard, People

"There’s nothing predictable about either Hyde’s plot or her searing conclusion."

—Tina Jordan, Entertainment Weekly

"Hyde vividly portrays both the wonders and horrors of white-water rafting."

—Diane White, The Boston Globe
