Tietoja tekijästä

Gordon Korman was born in Montreal, Canada on October 23, 1963. When his 7th-grade English teacher told the class they could have 45 minutes a day for four months to work on a story of their choice, Korman began This Can't Be Happening at Macdonald Hall. He was also the class monitor for the näytä lisää Scholastic TAB Book Club, so he sent his novel to the address on the TAB flyer, and a few days after his 14th birthday, he had a book contract with Scholastic. By the time he graduated from high school, he had published five other novels and several articles for Canadian newspapers. He received a BFA degree from New York University with a major in Dramatic Writing and a minor in Film and TV. He has written over 75 books for children and young adults including the Swindle series, The Juvie Three, and two books of poetry written by the fictional character Jeremy Bloom.

Gave kind of Stand by Me vibes. a group fo five guys - four old friends and one new kid - discover a dead rich guy's cold war era bomb shelter. It becomes a haven for them and a secret they strive to protect. All the group take turns telling their story. Each character is developed and portrayed with care. There's an abusive step-dad and a high school aged dangerous creep that the kids have to grapple with as well as figuring out how to care for each other. Characters present white.

I downloaded this audio despite the off-putting title--I don't generally like creepy hostage things, but I ended up liking it. It's only about 2 1/2 hours, and the kidnapped girl is like a young MacGyver (resourceful). It's the first of a three part series--kind of. It actually frequently references an earlier series--so you'd really want to read that one first; that one is a 6 part series called, "On the Run".

This is part two of a three part series that sequels a 6 part series called "On the Run". (Children's books are getting too complicated with all this series stuff!) Meg was kidnapped and continues to try to get free while her brother, Aiden, along with the FBI, tries to find her.
