Amy Wild is in trouble again - and this time, her parents decide enough is enough. Amy is going to stay out of trouble over the summer by going on a trip with batty Auntie Marg - a photographer, who travels all around the world to dangerous, exciting places. That's how Amy's ended up here: Iquitos, Peru. The problem is, staying out of trouble just doesn't seem to happen when Amy's around. When Auntie Marg is involved in an accident, Amy has to escape into the Amazon rainforest, with no clothes, no food, no money, and no map. She's got to face spiders, poisonous plants, legends of evil spirits - and something even more sinister. All she has is Juan, a local boy with a mysterious scar, who's definitely hiding a secret more

Back cover copy

I’m Amy Wild. And I’m in trouble. Again. It isn’t entirely my fault. It wasn’t even my idea to come on this trip to Peru with my batty old Auntie Marg. She’s a photographer, and she travels all around the world to dangerous, exotic, exciting places. That’s how we ended up here: crazy, colourful Peru. Auntie Marg was in an accident, and I had to hide in the Amazon rainforest. This place is full of spiders, scorpions and poisonous plants - and something more sinister than all of that put together. I’ve got no clothes, no food, no money – not even a map. All I’ve got is Juan. I would say he’s my friend, but I'm not sure I can trust him. Not yet . . . The first adventure-packed book from Helen more
