Action, Adventure and True Love! February 15, 2014

Rush

By: Jonathan Friesenimgres-4

I definitely wish I had the adrenaline-junkie vide that is created with our main character Jake in Rush, a definite surprising-action adventure that I couldn’t put down. With a touch of romance, as Jake’s love for his long-time best friend continues to grow, this book really does have it all, for both boys and girls!

When Jake is on the fast-track to become a fire-fighter and join a prestigious crew, his limits are definitely pushed and the rush that he receives is definitely heightened. It all boils down to how far he is willing to take his rush and how much he is willing to risk… In the end, I believe Jake learns not only an answer to this question, but a great lesson in pushing the limits.
