Format: Mass Market Paperback
When we last left Aidan and Meg Falconer in CHASING THE FALCONERS, they were fleeing Vermont--and a man they've dubbed Hairless Joe who seems to want to kill them. Miguel Reyes, a former juvenile who was housed with them at Sunnydale Farm, has been shot and captured, and Aidan and Meg know that they don't have much time before the police--and FBI agent Emmanuel Harris--catches up with them.

Aidan found the photograph that he was looking for in the summer house in Vermont, that shows in living color that CIA operative Frank Lindenauer is a real, live person. They seem to be out of options as to what to do next, though, until Aidan spots a clue in the photo--the name of a hotel where "Uncle" Frank and his then-girlfriend, "Aunt" Jane, stayed during that summer vacation.

The kids make it to the hotel and eventually unearth a name and address for "Aunt" Jane, all the way in Boston, Masachusetts. So Aidan and Meg are on the run, once again, heading towards Boston while trying to avoid the police, Hairless Joe, and Agent Harris.

"Aunt" Jane, though, doesn't provide the miracle that they were looking for. She doesn't have any new information about Frank Lindenauer--she doesn't even know where he lives. And when she turns the Falconers into the police, it's only luck that allows him to escape, even though Meg is taken into custody.

Aidan attempts a desperate rescue, infiltrating the police station where Meg is being held until FBI agent Harris and a member of the Juvenile Department of Corrections can arrive to pick her up. Aidan does find one thing that might be able to help them, though, a file of old traffic tickets on "Uncle" Frank.

Exciting second book in the On the Run series. 14 Sept. 2005
By Rebecca Herman - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the second book in the On the Run series by Gordon Korman, about two young runaway siblings who are determined to find the evidence necessary to free their parents, who have been sentenced to life in prison for the crime of treason.

Fifteen-year-old Aiden Falconer and his eleven-year-old sister, Meg, are still on the run from the authorities, continuing their search for evidence they hope will free their parents. They know that their only chance is to track down Frank Lindenauer, the old family friend who, claiming to be a CIA agent, talked the Falconer parents, who were criminologists, into making terrorist profiles that fell into enemy hands. Hoping to learn something about where Frank may be now, the siblings travel to Boston in search of one of Frank's former girlfriends, who may be able to tell them something. They must find a way to survive in the big city while avoiding the law enforcement officials who are still determined to capture the kids.

This book was just as exciting as the first book in the On the Run series, Chasing the Falconers. I would recommend this book to all readers who enjoyed the first book in this series, and I think these books would be a good choice for reluctant readers, because they have a lot of suspense that keeps the pages turning. I look forward to reading the rest of the books in this series.

The Fugitive Factor 31 Mar. 2008
By Mary Tyler Moore - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Book Review: The Fugitive Factor

Imagine your parents are accused of a crime they didn't commit, or so you believe. Because of this you and your sister are placed at a juvenile farm. After you and your sister escape the farm, a crazy bald man is in pursuit of you. You don't know who he is, but when you hide he searches for you and when you run, he follows. You have to avoid him if you want any chance in freeing your parents. This is Aiden and Meg Falconer's story.

In The Fugitive Factor Aiden and Meg are on the run since their escape from Sunny Dale, a juvenile farm. The Falconer children were placed at Sunny Dale Farm because their parents have been accused of helping terrorists sneak into America. After escaping the farm Aiden and Meg experience the harsh conditions of life on the run as they try to evade a man they've dubbed Hairless Joe while trying to locate Frank, the only person who can prove their parents' innocence. When Aiden and Meg find a picture at their summer house of Frank and their parents sitting outside a hotel, Meg and Aiden decide to visit the hotel and try to trace Frank down. Once at the hotel, Aiden asks the clerk to search for records of Frank's visits there. When the clerk hesitates, Meg distracts him long enough for Aiden to search the files.

With a little luck Aiden comes up with the name of Jane, a woman registered with Frank at the hotel. When they visit her, she gives them some good information including Frank's old room number. When Aiden and Meg visit the current occupant of the room, he gives Aiden and Meg some things Frank left behind. This leads to more unanswered questions. Later, when Aiden and Meg return to meet with Jane, she opens the door along with police. The Falconers immediately run, but Meg is caught. Posing as a police officer, Aiden is able to find an address for Frank. He then busts Meg out and they head to California to find Frank.

The Fugitive Factor is a very descriptive and well written book. It is at about an 8 to 10 year old reading book. Throughout this book you are entertained with the ups and downs of the Falconer's everyday struggles to prove their parents innocent. This book kept me wanting to read more at all times. This is one of the best books I've read yet. This touching and moving story is a great read.

I would most definitely recommend this book.

Fast paced page turner 3 Jun. 2005
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I'm 15 years old, and I bought this book when I went to the 2005 Power of the Pen state finals in Wooster, Ohio. I was there to recieve the "Promising Young Talent Award" from Gordan Korman himself. I ended up taking one copy each of all of Mr. Korman's books that were being sold there. The brand, spanking new On the Run #2 The Fugitive Factor was amoung them. It was awesome because this book was straight off the printing line, basically.

This book, much like the one the comes before it, is short and fast. I went through it real quickly, not only because it isn't long, but because it's suspenseful. The character development is rich and the story is fast. Mabey too fast. That's really the only thing that was wrong with the book. It's both addictive and short. Before you know it, you're waiting on On the Run #3 to hit the shelves.

Gordan Korman isn't writing a humor piece here, and it is aimed at the Junior High crowd, or even high schoolers who want a quick, entertaining read. However, there is a high intelligence and sharp wit found within the adventure.

This series is a good read. When I picked it up at the Power of the Pen competition, I had no idea that I'd found myself a series that I'm definatley gonna be hooked on.

Great Series, fast paced 23 Mar. 2008
By P. Smith - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
My 10-year-old loves this series, and has hooked her 12-year-old sister in to it, too. I've read some of the books out loud to the kids and they are fun, fast, and clean. Great suspense of a very appropriate nature for young readers. I would recommend these books to anyone.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This series by Gordon Korman worked wonders for several reluctant readers in my class. These are good fast moving books that really move you on to the next in the series.
