Mike Gonzalez loves adventures. That is, he loves to read about them. Honestly, he would just rather read about being surrounded by killer sharks than actually being surrounded by killer sharks. Mike loved to live life on the edge. That is, he likes to read about it. So when he and his family go on a vacation to the jungle, he is LESS than thrilled to go. After all, he prefers reading about it much better.
His little sister, Dani, however, lives for adventure and danger. Experiencing it is SO much better than reading about it in a boring old book. Her brother Mike is always so busy worrying about the “what if’s” and the “dangers in everyday life.” Dani is starting to get annoyed with how Mike treats her like she is a baby. She’s eight, for goodness sake! While Mike is more than disappointed about the trip, Dani is really, really, REALLY excited to go to the jungle. That’s where all great adventures start! And she isn’t wrong.
When Mike’s family goes on a tour boat, they meet Captain Kevin. The fearless, exciting, funny, the daring, Captain Kevin… who also has no pants on. But nevermind that! Of course, Dani admires him greatly. While on the tour, Captain Kevin, who is the tour guide, lures all the tourists into a- TOURIST TRAP! All of them, that is, except for Mike and Dani. Now, Dani will finally get the adventure she wanted. She will be brave, just like all of her femine role models. Mike, on the other hand, is having a mental breakdown. First off, he was stuck in the jungle, on a boat, with an apparent lunatic, his too-brave sister, and a snake sleeping in the vending machine that for some reason is on the ship. But maybe, just maybe, a little bit of Mike, just a little, wanted to go on the adventure. Live life on the edge, from a safe distance of course. But he had none of his books to guide him. But when crazy, dangerous things happen, involving deadly hot sauce, traitors, and fake noses, Mike is starting to think, maybe he doesn’t need to be so scared. Maybe he could live life on the edge! With the right safety gear, of course.
This is one of the craziest, most exciting, funniest books I have read so far. It is a thrilling, edge-of-your-seat adventure that you need to check out! Dani and Mike had a lot of fun in this book, and so can you!
