Seventeen-year-old Ethan Underwood is totally unprepared to search for his father in the Blythe River National Wilderness. Not only is he small, scrawny, and skittish but he s barely speaking to the man after a traumatic betrayal. Yet when his father vanishes from their remote cabin and rangers abandon the rescue mission, suddenly it s up to Ethan to keep looking. Angry or not, he s his father s only hope. With the help of three locals a fearless seventy-year-old widow, a pack guide, and a former actor with limited outdoor skills he heads into the wild. The days that follow transform Ethan s world. Hail, punishing sun, swollen rapids, and exhausting pain leave him wondering if he s been fooled yet again: Is his father out here at all? As the situation grows increasingly dire, Ethan realizes this quest has become about more than finding his dad.
