Free delivery worldwide. Description After being the victim of an armed robbery, Sean should be terrified but he isn't.
He finds he likes the rush that comes from danger and tries to recreate the feeling. But when his risktaking leads him to some of the worst parts of town and he finds himself face-to-face with the original armed robbers he finds he must do the right thing. I saw Cam looking at the floor. But something told me that right here, right now, hitting the button would be the wrong thing to do.
These two guys were nervous. I was looking at my gunman right in the eyes. I knew there was something there. These guys were whacked on something. Anything could make them freak. The guns were real. Everything was real. When the burger joint that Sean works at is held up at gunpoint late one Friday night, Sean keeps his cool and calmly works through the crisis to appease the robbers and to ensure that nobody is injured during the tense holdup.
After the holdup, Sean craves the same adrenalin rush by seeking risky situations.

Sean spends time with Jeannette, a fellow victim of the robbery, who seems engaged in some post-traumatic stress behaviour of her own. She drinks alcohol and entices Sean to smoke marijuana in public. He also befriends, Priscilla, a psychotic homeless woman. It is clear that, despite Sean's penchant for adrenalin-seeking, both Jeannette and Priscilla are drawn to Sean and find him to be a stable and calming influence. His risk-taking eventually takes Sean into the rougher parts of town.

When he comes across the robbers face-to-face on the street, his dilemma is between going forward to the police and, thereby, risking his life or keeping silent. Running the Risk is another offering in the hi-lo "Orca Soundings" series.
Award-winning and prolific author Lesley Choyce has previously written several titles for this reluctant reader series with various high interest teen subjects. With this recent title, Choyce incorporates suspense, mystery and the social issue of homelessness into a fast-paced story that is sure to appeal to both male and female readers. Because the story is being told in the first person, the reader can keenly follow along with Sean's adrenalin quest. Through Sean's recounting events about his grandfather, who had his own keen sense of adventure and a personal motto of living life with "balls to the wall," and a particular exchange of Sean's with his father, who faced his own moral dilemma at work, readers will recognize that eventually Sean's honesty and decency will enable him to do the right thing and come forward to the police despite the possible danger to his own life.
This protagonist is both a likeable and believable character, and, in typical reluctant reader fashion, the reader will undoubtedly eagerly continue the story though to the concluding pages.
