A Wild Ride
by Shellene Ramsahoye

A story of adventure, survival, friendship, and personal journey, A Wild Ride features thirteen-year-old Justin Attwood, who is sent to a summer wilderness camp at the insistence of his father. Although reluctant to attend the camp, Justin fears disappointing his dad and quickly befriends fellow camper Shawn Miller. With his new friend by his side, Justin begins to appreciate camp life, despite errors in judgment and resulting injuries and rivalries. With the assistance of Mike, the head camp instructor, the boys participate in the final challenge—the overnight river adventure. When the unexpected happens, Justin is forced to battle the mountain elements—and his own self-doubt—in his solo search for help. Along his journey, Justin also discovers the true meaning of perseverance and rising above. A Wild Ride is a fascinating coming-of-age story that will both resonate with and captivate teenaged boys, and those looking back to their youth at summer camp.

Shellene Ramsahoye has a Master in Speech-Language Pathology and has been a speech-language pathologist for twenty-five years, working mostly with preschool and school-aged children, in both healthcare and school settings. She also has a Bachelor of Science in Zoology. She has always loved writing and reading. Throughout her career, she has had the opportunity to read many children’s books, learning what children love, what they talk about, and what makes them laugh. Wanting to contribute to the wonderful realm of literature and to hone her own writing skills, Shellene took creative writing and advanced writing classes. As she begins to wind down her private practice, Shellene finds herself spending more time focusing on her hobbies, which include writing and amateur photography. She also enjoys hiking and travelling with her family. Shellene lives in Wainwright, Alberta, on a large acreage with her husband and two teenaged children. She has two dogs, two cats, and two enormous goldfish. A Wild Ride is her first book.
