Race of Fear, by Kathy Hoopman

When Kent and Brad climb the hill looking for adventure, they get more than they bargained for. They witness a man being pushed off a cliff! Now they are running for their lives, terrified the baddies might catch them too.

Escape is not easy. They have to contend with caves, snakes, wasps and waterfalls. And, even though they manage to overcome these, the baddies still seem to be gaining on them. What will happen if they’re caught?

Race of Fear is a Quick Reads title from Word Weavers Press. Aimed at reluctant readers, and especially primary school boys, these are stories which are both fun and accessible. Race of Fear is no exception.
