This is one of the books that you read and say, "No way" but you keep reading and are amazed by the author's ability to think about a a story like this. Has that ever happened to you about a book? We couldn't keep this one on the shelves at our school. It's part of a series. The second book is Sent, and then I believe the third is called Sabotaged. Haddix is a popular author with 5th and 6th graders especially.

A suggestion from the Lemme Librarian:
Great book... but it took so long for the sequel to come out that I completely forgot what happened in the 1st one! So, my advice is that you read them close together! I haven't read part 3 yet... I hope I can remember what happened in part two!

Spoiler: It's nice to have a science fiction thriller that turns into historical fiction!

I agree, ND! I thought this was a fantastic book and a definite page turner. It wasn't scary like I would scream, but it would make the hairs on my arm stand up. Have you read the rest of the series? I haven't yet...
