DJ thought it was going to be a fun trip with his grandfather, not a mad race to stay alive.

DJ is always thrilled to spend time with his grandfather, a person he idolizes. When his grandfather announces that he's going to take all of his grandsons on individual adventures, it seems only fair that DJ, as the oldest grandchild, will get his adventure first. An adventure that sees his grandfather at the controls of a small plane as the two fly to Central America for a week. But when someone tries to kidnap him, DJ must flee through the jungle and down a crocodile-infested river, pursued by armed gunmen. When he isn't busy trying to stay alive, DJ discovers things about himself he never suspected and uncovers information that leads him to believe his beloved grandfather is living a secret life.

In this exciting prequel to Between Heaven and Earth and Sleeper, the responsible and athletically gifted DJ flies to Central America.

Recently named a Member of the Order of Canada, Eric Walters began writing in 1993 as a way to entice his grade-five students into becoming more interested in reading and writing. He is the author of Between Heaven and Earth in Seven (the series) and Sleeper in The Seven Sequels and has published ninety novels and picture books. He is a tireless presenter, speaking to over 100,000 students per year in schools across the country. He lives in Guelph, Ontario. For more information, visit

"A solid novel with a lot to enjoy...Recommended." - CM Magazine

"The so well described jungle settings, the description of the frantic river rapids and the natural dialogue between the two initially prickly young adolescents demonstrate author Walters' considerable skill as he sets up a compelling short novel perfect for middle school students." - Resource Links
