" If you like adventure and quick thinking youll' love this awesome book. Its a total cliffhanger in some parts. Ecspecilly when the 3 main charecters,(Luke, Theo and Callie) try to get through an impassible gate and all the hi- tech equipment and the deadly wildfire that killed Isabelle (so sad) and many other people in the story were injured as well. If i say anything else then I will give away more . I suguest that u read the book yourself. " said.

"An action-packed adventure around Luke, the son of the President of the United States, who spends time of his summer vacation at Camp David with his friend Theo. An earthquake causes fire to break out around Camp David and circumstances force Luke, Theo and Callie (she is the new chef's daughter) to save the day. I know boys and girls at our school will love this book, all its action, adventure, and the amazing contraptions built by the kids to escape the fire - for me, it got a bit too long in the end." said.

"This happens in Camp David, Maryland. Luke Brockett, Callie Lansa, Theo Ellias, Adam Martens, and Isabelle Keller go on a very exciting adventure. Isabelle doesn't survive an electric shock. Adam Martens and Isabelle Keller are secret service agents. Luke Brockett is the son of the President, Pierce Brockett. An earthquake happens and knocks over a stick that campers used to poke their fire to see if it was still going. A wildfire started!! The wildfire spread to Camp David. Camp David was evacuated, but Luke's dog, Comet, caused Lukes vehicle to wreck. Now Luke and his friends (including Adam) are stuck in Camp David!

"Yet another tale that I had to put down because of its intensity! The president's son, Luke and his friends Theo and Callie are caught at Camp David after an earthquake sets off wildfires around them. They try to escape but run into one obstacle after another. Security guards are injured and they try to rescue them, the gates short circuit and won't let them out of the compound, and the trio's ingenuity is the only thing that saves the day. The Camp David setting is an unusual one, and the historic notes at the end are appreciated. Definitely good use of golf carts and very imaginative electrical skills are out to use. For students who like books packed with action and adventure, this is a great choice! Good length, good cover, good print size for reluctant readers.

"The book starts off with an exciting chain of events -- an earthquake and a forest fire that starts as a result, and leads to the son of the president trapped inside an electrified fenced-in area at Camp David with two other kids. They must rely on their wits and grit to survive and escape when the secret service agents and other adults are all injured or dead. The book is surprisingly believable and suspenseful, although there were times when I wished there was a map included so I could better picture their movements around the camp as they tried to escape. With Obama in office, lots of kids imagine themselves as a child or teen living in the White House, so the twist of having the main character be the son of a sitting president is another attractive draw. Recommended for middle school age." said.

"A fast-paced middle school read about the son of the President of the United States getting trapped at Camp David with two friends, in the middle of a raging forest fire, and how they must scramble to get themselves out safely. Luke goes from whiny and self-absorbed to courageous and ingenious throughout the book: he stops complaining about always having Secret Service agents shadowing him when they all are killed or incapacitated during the chaos of the rapidly approaching fire, and he has to rally his friends to engineer their own escape. Security systems that were foolproof at keeping bad guys from getting IN now become deathtraps they must overcome in order to get OUT of Camp David! Lots of fun. The author researched as much as she could about Camp David and there's a nice afterword with photos and fun facts; but she admits that of course all of her security measures are invented by her. Fun book for would-be Macgyvers and action heroes! Written by an Ohio author, too." said.
