An adventure-packed debut for an exciting new fiction series When shy, quiet Jane Ray rescues a drowning seabird from an oil spill in Vancouver`s Burrard Inlet, she finds herself face to face with national television cameras -- and head to head with the alleged culprit, SeaKing Shipping Pacific. In Flight or Fight, the first book in Whitecap`s newest action-packed series, Jane discovers that there comes a time when everyone has to choose between running and taking a stand. Impassioned by the dedication of animal rescue crews working around the clock to save hundreds of oiled birds, Jane volunteers with the Urban Wildlife Rescue Center and begins a campaign urging SeaKing to take responsibility for the spill. Jane grows frustrated by the lack of response, but far from ignoring her, SeaKing executives are growing worried about the vocal young girl. Will they resort to drastic measures to keep her quiet? Jane is going to need all the help she can get from her two best friends... and a couple of surprising allies as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fresh face in young adult literature I really enjoyed Flight or Fight. The main character Jane Ray and her two stalwart pals, Amy and Flory, are a very likeable and charming new literary trio. Their adventures in fighting for the rights of animals and the environment prove that even three young girls can make a difference. Uplifting but not sentimental, Flight or Fight is a story which shows that nothing is as straight forward as it seems and that help can come from unexpected sources. Author Diane Haynes has also included some real-life facts on rescuing wildlife which are fascinating as well as practical. A great gift for yourself or the tweens and teens in your life.
