This book makes you feel like you are the main character. It has lots of action scenes and is basically about a high risk person. 4Q4P The cover art is okay and I'd recommend this to high school students. I chose to read this book because the cover information interested me. TylerS

It is a great book about skill and the rush of livins dangerously. It is very entising and very fast to get hooked on. Q5P3 AHS/Cyle K

It was a very well developed plot with lots of action (and) anyone who loves a thrill will love this. Two things though, Helecopter when shortened is Chopper not Copter and bull dosers can't run out of gasoline because they only use diesel. Q4P5 AHS/Jesse C

Adrenaline junkie and daredevil, Jake's stunts have caused others to get hurt, get himself expelled from school, and earn himself the title of the town's pariah.

When the opportunity presents itself to join an elite team of forest firefighters who call themselves the Immortals, he jumps at the chance - despite the fact that these men who rappel into forest fires tend to die young. As he goes through the group leader's dangerous training and unorthodox ways of initiation, he begins to realize that there's more to life than the next adrenaline high.

Will Jake continue to be a firefighter, or will his sense of right and wrong change his mind?

A great, fast-paced book that will give you an adrenaline rush just by reading it. The characters are well-developed, the plot is gripping, and the stakes in the book are high. Readers who are adrenaline junkies themselves or who like adventure and survival stories will enjoy reading RUSH. ( )

Some people cannot get enough thrills. They need danger to stay alive. Jake King is such a person. At age eight, he climbed the gym ropes to the ceiling to retrieve his best friend Salome’s necklace, thrown in a vent by another student. At age seventeen, the thrills are harder to come by and he will risk it all, even Salome, to get another thrill. Brockton, CA is home to forest fire fighters and living there Jake is familiar with them. They rush into burning forests, rappel down mountain sides, and jump from helicopters to quench a fire. This is the ultimate high, and after being expelled from school for stealing gym equipment, fire fighting is Jake’s only alternative. Plus it is in his family’s blood; both his father and brother were fire fighters. However, he finds more than he bargained for in his chief, Moxie, and his band of Immortals. Will he risk everything to become an Immortal?
You will feel the heat in Rush. You will feel the rush as Jake pushes boundaries. You may or may not sympathize with him as he risks his relationship with Salome and you may or may not relate to his loner/’always in trouble’ status. The story is good, not great. The thrills are exciting. You will be able to visualize some, but not all of Jake’s adventures. Rush should attract junior high and high school boys and might get them reading. It’s worth a shot. ( )
