An exceptional new novel about falling down, risking everything and embracing what makes us unique. Danger "Danny" Danielle Warren is no stranger to falling. After losing an eye in a childhood accident, she had to relearn her perception of movement and space. Now Danny keeps her head down, studies hard, and works to fulfill everyone else's needs. She's certain that her mom's bitterness and her TV star father's absence are her fault. If only she were more--more athletic, charismatic, attractive--life would be perfect. When her dad calls with an offer to join him to film the next episode of his popular survivalist show, Danny jumps at the chance to prove she's not the disappointment he left behind. Being on set with the hottest teen movie idol of the moment, Gus Price, should be the cherry on top. But when their small plane crashes in the Amazon, and a terrible secret is revealed, Danny must face the truth about the parent she worships and falling for Gus, and find her own inner strength and worth to light the way home.

Danny is the daughter of TV reality-show star Cougar Warren, who takes celebrities on outdoor adventures. He's a savvy survivor of extreme conditionsâand a largely absent father. For Danny's seventeenth birthday, he invites her along on a trip to the Amazon with Gus Price, the hottest teen actor around. But when their plane crashes into the rain forest, the crew begin to die off, leaving it up to Danny and Gus to make their way to safety and bring back help for the survivors. Fischer's tightly constructed novel is packed with gruesome and fascinating details about Amazonian flora and fauna, but at its heart is Danny's desire to create a relationship with the father she idolizes, despite her mother's cautions. While readers may be frustrated by Danny's cluelessness regarding his faults and skeptical of the romance building between her and Gus, Fischer has created a sympathetic, believably flawed, and satisfyingly strong heroine whose emotional journey is as compelling as the physical hardships of the rain forest.
