Detailed Product Description
London, 2006. 256 pp. As New paperback.

Pip McLeod's life is a balancing act between family, friends and his sporting passion, rock-climbing. Pip's ambitions are clear-cut, but it isn't long before real life gets in their way. His father loses his job, and as his older brother's life goes into a dangerous downward spiral, Pip is forced to confront tough issues of loyalty and responsibility.
 
At the same time he must deal with the romantic rivalry between the gorgeous girl next door and his friendly climbing partner. How will he choose between them? Will betraying his brother save him or condemn him? And will his father's remorseless ambition for his sons end in disaster? On the traditional father-son hunting trip Pip realizes he must solve things his own way - if he can. 

From the Back Cover: Pip McLeod's passion is rock climbing. His life is simple, his ambitions clear-cut. But under the surface new currents are stirring, threatening everything he believes indestructible.

His domineering father; a high-flying brother whose life is in free fall; the heady turbulence of romance. As events spiral out of control Pip is forced to make a dramatic choice, to confront issues of life and death alone...and in facing the ultimate loss, discovers what matters most of all.

Acclaimed as "an impressive new talent" in New Zealand, V. M. Jones has already won two New Zealand Post Book Awards for Children, and been shortlisted for the LIANZA Esther Glen Medal.
