Tween Tuesday Review: On the Run

Meg and Aiden don't believe their parents are traitors. Unfortunately they can't confirm it as their parents are in prison.

With no one to take care of them, Meg and Aiden end up living in a juvenile detention facility under false names. One night Aiden accidentally sets fire to the facility.

He and Meg escape and vow never to return. Instead, they set out to go across country to find the one man who might be able to prove their parents' innocence.

My Thoughts: I really liked this one - I read it for a 4th and 5th grade book club and I'm eager to read the rest of the series. While the book ends on a massive cliff hanger, I love the danger, the action, and the twists of characters.

This book has several great topics to discuss and all the 4th and 5th graders wanted to read more in the series. Both are a sign we picked a real winner for our book discussion book.

Cover Thoughts: Great

I loved this book! It was full of adventure and I still can't figure out who Uncle Fred is.
