This story is written by award-winning Canadian children's author, Jacqueline Guest. Sixteen-year-old Canadian Kai Hunter is hiding out in Banff, Alberta, to avoid being sent to live with her distant Navajo relatives in the United States. While in hiding, she becomes friends with an 18-year-old mechanic, Dale Hartell. Although Kai is attracted to Dale, his racist friends concern her. When she refuses to get more intimate with him, Kai discovers another side to Dale—his pyromaniac side! But if Kai goes to the authorities, how can she keep her identity a secret?
