Overview


Aiden and Meg Falconer are now celebrities ... for all the wrong reasons. It's much harder to be on the run when the whole country's looking for you....

Aiden and Meg Falconer are out to find the evidence that will free their parents from a life sentence in prison. But in order to do that, they have to live undercover.

Now their story has hit the airwaves, and suddenly everyone is looking for the Falconer kids. They think they can hide with an old family friend ... but when she turns them in and Meg is put in jail, the danger and adventure only increase.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
If you are searching for a fast-paced, action-packed adventure novel this book is for you. Reading the first book in the series, On the Run, is optional because in book two the author brings the reader up to speed with information in the prologue. Fifteen-year-old Aiden and eleven-year-old Meg have a dilemma. They believe their parents are falsely imprisoned for harboring foreign terrorists. The Falconer children escape from a protective juvenile detention facility in order to uncover evidence to free their parents. Fortunately, the young fugitives happen to be wise and resourceful beyond their tender years. Aiden and Meg are desperately seeking a potentially-helpful CIA agent, Frank Lindenauer while being pursued by the police, FBI and a psycho assassin named Hairless Joe. The escapees board a duck boat and a sudden gust of wind blows the papers Aiden is holding. Miraculously, Meg is able to grab the only paper containing Frank's address. Portions of this story are far-fetched, but this makes it a fun read. What in the world happens next? Find out in the third book of the series. 2005, Scholastic, Ages 8 to 12.
—Mary Jo Edwards
