Description

Rescue in the Rockies follows Janey, who’s almost 15, as she’s forced to spend the holidays with her grandmother and her grandmother’s new beau, Charlie. Being in Banff, Alberta, isn’t the problem. But Charlie has invited his annoying,16-year-old grandson Max for the stay.

When Janey tries to flee the infuriating Max, she finds herself whisked away from present-day Banff and into wide-open Rocky Mountain wilderness.

This visit to 1883 is the first of four time-travel adventures. With an unwitting Max, Janey lands in a First World War internment camp, a "Banff Indian Days" celebration and the inaugural Banff Winter Festival. As Janey deals with present-day chaos, including the appearance of an old crush, she tries to figure out what’s causing her mysterious disappearances.

What do the four visits have in common, and can Janey solve this mystery before the enemy she's made in the past captures her and Max for good?
