This notable, gripping book unfolds the 2018 Paradise, California wildfire disaster through the eyes of one brave boy. A Children's Outstanding Release.

When 14-year-old Troy's parents leave him in charge overnight, he has no idea his life in Paradise is about to change. He wakes to see a monstrous wildfire racing toward his home. Unable to reach his parents, and with a kid sister, a dog, and a cat to protect, he knows he has to act. How can he get them all to safety? They'll never be able to outrun the fire on foot. He has to make a decision, fast. Does he have what it takes to escape?

Based on eyewitness accounts and hours of research, this inspirational story is exceptionally vivid, swiftpaced, and stirring. The November 2018 Butte County disaster was California's biggest forest fire and has become a defining moment in American disaster history.
