Review by: Malcolm Torres on April 13, 2016 :
This story is full of tension. As the professor sets out to overcome his fear of heights he takes on the most exciting and dangerous activity he can think of - skydiving. Throughout the story I was waiting for something to go wrong, and sure enough it does. I was worried the professor wouldn't make it. Read this story to find out what happens.
