Addy is raised by her grandparents after her parents are lost in a fire. Her grandmother signs Addy up for a wilderness program for city kids in Paradise, California. Vigilant about safety since the fire, Addy learns to rely on the other kids in the program as they master skills like camping, hiking, and building campfires. When a wildfire strikes the area, Addy must face her fears and lead her friends to safety, using her ability to think strategically, newfound wilderness skills, and her intuition to survive. Jewell Parker Rhodes inspires with a story of bravery and resiliency in Paradise on Fire.
