As the long synopsis says, this is a sequel to Downriver, but it isn't necessary to have read that to enjoy this. The story, in my opinion, is less about the interactions of the older teens and their friends, and how they mature, though that perhaps was the author's intent, as it is about Colorado river-rafting in the Grand Canyon. The challenges of every rapid and whirlpool and falls are met; cooperation among the group and between groups they meet on the way; the dangers; the thought processes as how to best meet each challenge--it may not sound interesting but it was fascinating and exciting, and I was sorry when the book ended. I'm almost ready to sign up for a rafting trip myself.
