One of my favorite books as a young teenager! It was very helpful to be able to read about the challenges facing rescue workers and begin to learn about shock, trauma, etc. Not too scary, but not dull. A great choice for any student interested in becoming a firefighter or EMT.
A story about a bored teenage girl and boy who find out that it's better to be bored than faced with disaster, after they are the first on site of a major airliner crash and have to act alone to save the passengers until adult help can arrive.
