who strongly disliked Troy on the last trip, has second thoughts about coming, but eventually she decides not to turn down the adventure of a lifetime Unlike last time, Troy acquires the proper National Park permits for this trip After a couple of days, the friends learn they are rafting the river in record water levels that are still rising and they are one of the last groups to set off down the Grand Canyon Even the low ranked rapids are a struggle in these water levels and the friends begin to wonder if Lava Falls, the steepest navigable rapid in North America, will be passable Sometimes in life we have to go through challenging situations This book illustrates how individuals may respond to the same circumstances in different ways I enjoyed Downriver immensely I could not wait to read the sequel, River Thunder by Will Hobbs, and find out what happened to Jessie and her friends The author delivered on his promise of high volume excitement Will Hobbs made me feel like I was right there in the roaring, rolling rapids with Jessie and her companions I should caution future readers, this book has some slow, descriptive passages in the middle of the book The book as a whole was a thrilling read and I would recommend this book to anyone who read Downriver and wants to readabout the teens adventures I would not recommend reading River Thunder if you have not read Downriver because the author assumes that the reader is already familiar with the characters I am pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed River Thunder I was expecting the book to be one of those action packed adventure books all about conquering nature in some capacity with the sole focus on overcoming whitewater rafting ad nauseam But I was pleased that author Will Dobbs made the story muchthan that and create a a tale around the relationship between all the characters something that s usually lacking for me in adventure books I missed out on some of the details by not hav I am

usually lacking for me in adventure books I missed out on some of the details by not having read the previous book, Downriver, but I still enjoyed the story that I knew of Jessie and Star, Pug and Rita, as they made their journey oh yeah, and Troy, who could have died in Lava Falls for all I cared Mild spoiler there, in terms of how awful a person Troy is But the fact that I hated Troy so much serves to illustrate how well Dobbs created characters with personalities to hate at all There were still too many details about the rafting parts for my liking, but given that that s the subject of the whole book, it wasn t too bad since there were other storylines involved as well jessie and star met up with some friends and they were going to go rafting jessie had second thoughts about going since she thought troy wanted to get back at her for breaking up with him half way through they started arguingabout what to do at lava , the roughfest rapid on the river jessie had to decide since she was paddleing jesse is very draumatic.the book was very entense I was required to make a book review for my monthly reading book I read River thunder by Will Hobbs, the companion to Downriver The book is about about the kids going back to the grand canyon In the first book the kids were put into this camp with other children their age to help with social skills and get out of the normal

review for my monthly reading book I read River thunder by Will Hobbs, the companion to Downriver The book is about about the kids going back to the grand canyon In the first book the kids were put into this camp with other children their age to help with social skills and get out of the normal society The Grand Canyon had record high water level and crazy rapids The kids came back this time hoping to work on social skills and get back to the fun rapids Troy also wants to prove that he has changed They face many challenges throughout the book This means they have to work together and not get frustrated or mad at each other The characters in this book are the same but you see less of them, in the last one there were many on the trip to the Grand Canyon, in this one there are less I do like the characters goals and strives for this trip In the last book they were sent to the canyon and in this book they choose to go because they had such a good time before So this time they have intentions and things that they are looking forward in which they had not had before They chose this time instead of being forced to.One thing that really surprised me in a bad way was that there were numerous spelling errors Most books don t have any Others have a few but this one had so many it seemed as if it had not been revised or edited This made it hard to read the novel and made a dent on the good storyline I enjoyed how the book almost encourages people to get out and see the world It shows how you can meet people and even meet your lifelong friends One of the themes in this book is about finding life long friends Doing something that you would not want to do might end up being god and you might meet great friends and maybe keep doing that thing IN this story the kids don t want to go to the canyon but they enjoyed it in the end.If I were to recommend this to someone I would recommend this to two very different people First off, Someone who enjoys the outdoors and exploring and traveling would enjoy this book a lot because it relates to what they like to do The second person I would recommend this to someone who is struggling and doesn t have much in life that makes them happy This book would give them the idea to go out and see what life has for them This book can inspire people to go find lifelong friends by going out and doing stuff The book was very interesting, especially the 16 year old girl named jessie She does a very good job of keeping the story going Jessie and her companies go through many great adventures down in the grand cannon The story is really good and I would recommend it for people who enjoy Will Hoob s work.

the rest of the crew from Downriver have returned to the Grand Canyon for adventure down the Colorado River In the year since they last were together, each has changed each feels mature But how will they interact now that they are facing new challenges challenges greater than anything they ve had to deal with at home For Troy, it is a chance to prove he can be a team player, someone worthy of friendship and love For Jessie, the river is the ultimate test Does she have what it takes to row down the mighty Colorado The only way to find out is to get into the raft and set off to face the thundering rapids and the powerful emotions that the river unleashes I found out about this book somehow I always liked the first book Downriver and had no idea that there was a sequel I knew it probably wasn t the greatest idea considering it would probably smash my nostalgia and do things I didn t want it to, but I picked it up to read anyway.Suffice to say I expected this book to tie up some of the loose ends from the first namely what became of Troy, the unresolved issues between him and the rest of the gang, and to see somethingdevelop between Jessi I found out about this book somehow I always liked the first book Downriver and had no idea that there was a sequel I knew it probably wasn t the greatest idea considering it would probably smash my nostalgia and do things I didn t want it to, but I picked it up to read anyway.Suffice to say I expected this book to tie up some of the loose ends from the first namely what became of Troy, the unresolved issues between him and the rest of the gang, and to see somethingdevelop between Jessie and Freddy.Unfortunately, the first problem is that while Freddy is mentioned, he s not a part of the events of this book Though, considering that the entire thing is Troy s scheme and he never liked Freddy anyway, it makes sense that he wouldn t invite him too honestly though it s a little hazy, they never specify if Freddy was actually invited, Jessie just says that he wouldn t be able to due to the fire fighting thing he was doing Anyway, regardless, a sequel without Freddy is depressing indeed, and I hate that he doesn t get to go with Jessie on this trip like I m sure he would have wanted Strike one.And then there s Troy I could type a million reasons why characters like Troy make my hair stand on end No, seriously, he is the guy who s dangerous, the seemingly nice charismatic guy who knows how to influence those around him and doesn t take no for an answer The one who likes being in charge and wants all eyes on him and won t hesitate to take anyone in his way out Has Troy changed since Downriver I don t think so He s still all these things, and worse, he s gotten creepier His fixation on Jessie is stalkerish, an obsession that is seriously screwed up The guy tracks her down, follows her around her hometown, watching her every movement, and then creates this whole river trip just for the chance to get back into her life and make her his he essentially says this, that he didn t care about seeing anyone else but her He wants her to move to California to live with him an underage 16 year old girl Seriously It s possessive and creepy as hell And what annoys me most is that while Jessie is smart enough to back the hell away, this isn t resolved in the end It s just like ok Jessie tells Troy where to shove it and we re supposed to expect he ll back off, never contact her again, never stalk her, try to convince her to go to California, and when that doesn t work kidnap her It really bothers me that this is left hanging, because it s scary, and I don t like that in the end it s sort of forgotten in the joy of reaching the end of the river Strike two.As for plot, well, the story doesn t really have much of one compared to Downriver there was plenty of conflict and adventure there with the stealing of the equipment to go down the Grand Canyon themselves without a permit or adult, and the whole tension between Freddy, Troy, and Jessie Here there s not quite the same suspense, the main issue is Troy and is he or isn t he still a controlling douche bag It s kind of the whole thing and it just fizzles out and isn t resolved at the end There s also some hinting at some relationships blossoming, Rita and Adam, and a weird possibility of Pug and Star or Star and Joe which is just odd Also I kind of missed all of Star s new age yness, it was really muchtoned down in this book and hardly brought up which made me sad.Possibly the best parts were the actual rafting on the river, and Jessie s interactions with Kit I actually really loved this relationship and like the implications that Jessie might turn riding the Grand Canyon river into a lifetime job.Overall, the book s just ok, kind of a weak follow up to the original lacking a lot of development of the side characters and not quite as fun And in closing, I sincerely hope that Jessie files a restraining order against Troy, because seriously, guy is a creeper
