Description

When Mike Longridge gets himself in trouble yet again, he is given a choice: juvenile detention or an outdoor program called Explore. He opts for Explore, but soon finds himself wondering how he is going to survive ten months with the hippies and keeners in the program. He's never felt so out of place and is certain he will never get the hang of the outdoor activities. Will Mike go back to his old trouble-making ways or will he finally find a place to belong?

Editorial Reviews

"Goerzen does a great job of making the story compelling and realistic...Well written, well paced and has just the right amount of complexity to maintain interest."

— Resource Links

"Teen readers will cheer for Mike's newfound confidence and assertiveness, and perhaps see some important lessons for positive changes they can make in their own lives…Explore has everything a good teen read needs and would be an especially good selection for reluctant readers who are interested in outdoor sports. Recommended."

— CM Magazine
