Scaredy-cat Lisa Flyte strikes a deal with adrenaline junkie Jack Hawkins: she’ll be the test dummy for his new line of gear if he helps her get a backbone. They survive (barely!) their bumbling adventures in the wild. But will they survive each other once they’re back on solid ground?
“Oh, God!” I shriek. “We’re crashing!”
“We are NOT crashing.”
“Damn! I knew you were all wrong for this.”
“All wrong? No, I’m not!” I stiffen my spine, sitting up as tall as I can. “I can do this. I AM doing this!”
Jack looks away. “I better just take you home.”
“Yes. You said this was what you wanted, but clearly you don’t want to be here.”
“Yes I do! I can do this and I will.”
“Okay.” In a flash, he rips off his headphones and mine, snaps open his seatbelt and mine, and pulls me against him as he stands.
Jack turns me around and wraps his arms just under my ribcage. I figure out what he’s doing just as the helicopter banks sharply.
Out we go, tumbling backwards through space.
