Beginning a six-day hike with her best friends in order to get away from it all, Jeanette finds her plans disrupted when a pair of unwanted jocks joins the party and a flash flood threatens all their lives.

Though five teenage hikers are caught in a flash flood, nothing else happens quickly in this plodding novel, first in a projected trilogy. The teens include narrator Jet; her best friend, Neil, and his Australian-born girlfriend; Dwayne, Jet's "wannabe boyfriend," a big-hearted but oafish fellow who can't even remember her correct name; and Bill, a creepy ex-schoolmate with a tendency to display "feral" facial expressions. As luck would have it, Jet is reunited first with the diabolical Bill after they are all separated by the flood. The novel takes a turn for the crass as Bill, whom Jet suspects is a schizophrenic serial killer, begins making sexual advances which even the reappearance of Dwayne doesn't quash ("'I'm inside your head. I may as well be inside your panties, too, right?'"). Though long in arriving, the abrupt ending is as incredible as the rest of this slight drama. Ages 12-up.
