CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Imagine being in Grade 8 again and babysitting two school age students. One in grade 6 and the other in Grade 1. Of course, the relationship with the boy in Grade 6 is not easy! She picks them up from school one day and it is raining and keeps raining. As the babysitter, she is feels extremely responsible for the two children and gets them home and that is where the trouble begins. Based on a true story these 3 children are trapped in the house and the water level rises and keeps rising. As it rises, they become very resilient to try and escape this rising water and in the process form a relationship that I am certain will carry them through the rest of their lives, that is of course if they escaped!

This is a very short book that will take not time to read and it kind of grips you because it is a true event.
