This story will keep even the least bookish readers glued to their seats.” —Publishers Weekly “The author has done her research on emergency rescue; the crash scene and its evolving confusion are vividly detailed, and a great deal of information is conveyed. Human frailty and strengths are counterpoised.” —School Library Journal “Moment-by-moment action makes this dependable author’s taut suspense story feel like a chronicle of an actual disaster.
