Barbara Jo McKee (KLIATT Review, March 1997 (Vol. 31, No. 2))
In this story of a California brush fire that heads for a canyon where the rich inhabitants are certain nothing will touch them, Cooney relates the chilling events of a flash fire minute by minute and those whose lives are consumed by it. This is also a story of three different families and their relations with their children as well as about the maids who serve the families and the lives of the firefighters. This adventure story rings so true it will have you thinking the next time you hear about a flash fire. Cooney has done it again. This story will stay with you long after you finish the last page. Recommended highly. KLIATT Codes: JS--Recommended for junior and senior high school students. 1995, Scholastic/Point, 198p. 18cm, $4.50. Ages 13 to 18.
