Acclaimed author Will Hobbs has won numerous awards for his fiction, and seven of his novels have been named ALA Best Books for Young Adults. Inspired by Hobbs’ own journey through the Rio Grande’s canyons near the border with Mexico, Take Me to the River is a thrilling tale.
Fourteen-year-old Dylan and his cousin are paddling the Rio Grande when they see six Black Hawk helicopters fly into Mexico. The Army won’t say what’s happening, but they do tell the boys a hurricane is approaching. Undeterred, the boys continue their journey, unaware of what lies ahead.

In fifth grade, we started to read this book but never finished it. I read on the last day of school and the read it 3 more times because I liked it so much. This is one of my favorite books of all time and think that everyone should read it.
