Life will never be the same for Aiden and Meg. How can it be? They are young teens who have been fugitives, hunted and threatened with death, and now they are expected to return to a normal life where nothing is more important than school and friends. After what they have been through, how can they find value in such mundane events? But life doesn't stay normal when Meg is kidnaped right in front of Aiden and he is unable to stop it. He has failed Meg. Thus begins a series of terrifying events that leave Aiden frustrated and in danger again. He must not fail Meg this time. With help from the FBI and a most unlikely friend, Aiden tackles the kidnappers in hopes of freeing his sister before she meets a sinister end. Meg, refusing to lie down and let her kidnappers succeed, is also quite capable of making their lives miserable as she plans her escape and leaves clues for Aiden that she knows he will recognize.
Again, Gordon Korman tells a tale that will fascinate his young readers. Page after page, this exciting story unfolds through a gauntlet of events that leaves one wondering if Aiden will ever succeed. This is an exciting addition to a memorable list of excellent novels for young people.
