Things have been rough for Aiden and Meg Falconer. Over a year earlier, their parents were found guilty of aiding foreign terrorists. During that time Aiden and Meg lived as fugitives, but now, fourteen months into their parents’ life sentences, it is uncovered that they had been framed. They are released from prison, and cleared of all criminal charges. The kids go back to school and try to return to a life of normalcy. This doesn’t last long however, as Meg is kidnapped while she and Aiden are walking home from school one afternoon. This book is a fast paced with lots of action. It leaves the reader wanting to run out and find the sequel, as any good first series book should do.
