An American teen is unexpectedly swept into Spain's perilous bull run, an annual spectacle many of us devour with wide-eyed fascination from the comfort of our living rooms. A Notable Children's Release from bestselling children’s author Scott Peters.

15-year-old Zack is an American teen abroad on vacation. During a family outing on the festival sidelines, he's separated from his parents in the crowds. When he accidentally steps through an open barrier, he finds himself facing his ultimate test of survival! Somehow, he's become part of Pamplona's legendary bull run. He's no experienced local. He's just a kid from Chicago! He's way out of his element on the twisting cobblestone streets. Still, he knows he has to sprint as fast as he can and watch for a way out.
