What's Jack at the Helm About

Publisher Summary

Jack’s parents have bought a farmhouse in Nepal. It’ll be the site of a new religion―their latest get-rich-quick scheme. Sure, the Berensons don’t know quite how to get to the place. But once they arrive, their plan is sure to work.

When the Berenson family’s travels leave Jack lost in the wilderness of Nepal, a patched-up old raft is the only way to track down his mom and dad. At least this time, Jack has company. He’s riding with Harry from Connecticut, a traveling dude who has been trying to find himself―and who also wound up stranded.

As Jack and Harry ride down a winding river, they’ll have to watch out for rocks, rapids, and even crocodiles!

Who Wrote Jack at the Helm

author
Lisa Doan

Lisa Doan holds a master’s degree in writing for children and young adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts, sits on the board of the Brandywine Valley Writers Group and is an IPPY gold winner for juvenile fiction.

Lisa is a dual citizen of the U.S. and Ireland, has traveled throughout Africa, Asia and Central America, and lived on a Caribbean island. She has backpacked alone from Morocco to Kenya and her top tip on crossing the Sahara Desert is: TURN BACK - YOU HAVE MADE A LARGE MISTAKE.

Lisa’s jobs have included Master Scuba Diving Instructor, wall street headhunter, owner/chef of a restaurant, Set Medic for a reality T.V. show, Deputy Prothonotary of a county court and author of middle grade novels.

The author’s dream is to hit oil in the backyard, win the lottery or otherwise stumble upon a pile of money. Finding herself suddenly rich, she would buy a series of tiny apartments in far-flung foreign destinations and roam between them.

She has yet to win even two dollars in a lottery. So…hopefully the whole hitting oil in the backyard idea works out. (Though this will require a lot of luck as she currently lives in an apartment building in West Chester, PA.)
