When heavy November rains threaten to flood the small town of Black River, New Brunswick, the community calls on the hydroelectric company to open the gates of its dam and drop the water level. But local management has been overruled by its parent company and ordered to keep it closed.

Seventeen-year-old Stanton Frame is caught in the middle. His father is manager at the local dam, but his girlfriend, Jessica, has joined an environmental group that is worried about the threat of the dam flooding Black River.

Suspenseful and authentic, celebrated YA author Robert Rayner's new novel combines activism, love and mystery.
