Jump. That is what P.K. has done. A totally wild, crazy jump from a restrictive life with her family into a life of total adventurerock-climbing out west with a guy she barely knows. At first, everything’s amazing. Not only are they climbing in awesomely beautiful national parks like Yosemite but they seem awesomely made for one another. P.K. is in heaven. And then the cops show up . . . with an arrest warrant. And P.K. has to decide who to believe: this amazing guy whom she trusts with her lifeor the cops, who want her to believe that he may take her life.

She is the author of many award-winning books, including Stealing Freedom and Storm Warriors. The mother of two grown children, she lives with her husband in Maryland and West Virginia.
