The Heights - Set 1

by Mary Kate Doman

Poisonous snakes, skydiving burglars, sharks, piranhas, and lots of bad guys are just a sample of the nonstop action in The Heights. Follow the adventures of one family as they get into one exciting situation after another. There's lots of danger, but without strong language or edgy themes. The straightforward stories and short sentences help struggling students to keep moving through the text.

Blizzard:
The light snow got heavier. The road was slippery. Soon snow covered the ground. The car struggled to get up the hill. It got hard to see. Everything was white. Lexile: 210

Camp:
The smell of smoke was strong. And the sky was dark. All he could see was fire. Smoke filled the air. It was hard to breathe. "Leave everything! Run!" Lexile: 120, GR: Z+

Crash:
Lightning lit the sky. The thunder was loud. The lights went out. The plane went dark. Then the plane fell. Lexile: 40, GR: Z+

Dam:
The whole dam may collapse if the floodgates aren't opened. If that happens, the flood will be much worse. People will die. Lexile: 330

Dive:
He was scared. His tank was running out of air. He had to get out of there. He had to get out of there fast! Lexile: 180, GR: Z+
