5.0 out of 5 stars Great adventure story for kids., 4 Aug. 2005
This review is from: Chasing the Falconers (On the Run (Scholastic Paperback)) (Paperback)
This is the first 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 little sister, eleven-year-old Meg, had perfectly ordinary lives. Then the unbelievable happened. Their parents, boring college professors, were accused of aiding terrorists, and were convicted of treason against the United States government. Aiden and Meg know the parents couldn't have done such a terrible thing, but the one man that could prove their innocence has disappeared. And Aiden and Meg are trapped at Sunnydale Farm, a juvenile detention center, unable to do anything. But when a fire at the farm gives Aiden and Meg the chance to escape, they take it. They decide they will not stop until the find the man who could free their parents. But there are many dangers for them, both from natural elements and the police who are searching for them.
I really enjoyed Gordon Korman's previous adventure trilogies, and this new series is off to a great start. Aiden and Meg are sympathetic characters that will keep kids reading to find out if their quest is successful. I would recommend this book to readers who enjoyed previous adventure stories by Gordon Korman, as well as new readers who enjoy these types of books. I look forward to reading the rest of the books in this series.
