Description

Fifteen-year-old Jay Hunter has but one goal in life: to get out of the Falls. Life in the blue-collar tourist town doesn't hold much promise for a teenage boy. But all that begins to change when his mother reveals a remarkable family history: Jay's great-grandfather was one of the most famous river men who ever lived, saving people who'd jumped into the Falls, even going over the Falls himself numerous times. Suddenly, life in Niagara Falls holds new meaning for Jay—and a new challenge.
