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 adventure rock-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 life or the cops, who want her to believe that he may take her life.
