I really enjoyed this book and managed to finish it over the course of two reading sessions. Penn, the narrator, is a well-read young man who leads an escape from the labor camp he was sent to after the collapse of the economy. In my experience, good YA books from a guy’s point of view are hard to come by and I really liked the change of pace. Penn seemed like an interesting character and I appreciate the fact that he wasn’t just your typical hormone driven jock. I liked the other characters but I almost wish I knew more about their backgrounds in the camp and how they came to escape with Penn. Their adventure through the lakes and forest was both exciting and heartbreaking and managed to keep me on the edge of my seat. The love story was endearing and didn’t take center stage over what was going on.
The only thing that kept me from giving this book 5-stars is the ending which boggled my mind a bit.
I highly recommend this book and I thank Chris Bostic for giving me a copy in return for an honest review.

My son and I both read the book. It was a great read and kept you turning the pages wondering what was going to happen to the gang next. Recommended reading for teens as well as adults.

Fugitives is a very good read. Mr. Bostic gives a facinating account of the journey to freedom of eight young adults from a slave labor camp. Friendships, laughter, hardships, desperation, and victory are all encountered along the journey to freedom. Am looking forward to the second and third books of the trilogy. Hopefully more adventures for Penn and Cesswi.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
