Okay, this week, it's another review from the Reading Crew. Hmmm, who will be reviewing this week? Why, it's Elizabeth. She's been reading On the Run: The Stowaway Solution, Book 4 by Gordon Korman. Let's see what she had to say about it.
"The series starts off with Aiden and MegFalconer's parents both in jail because they were framed and supposedly 'gave information over to the enemy.' In reality they did, but it was unknowingly. A close family friend tricked them into thinking they were doing the right thing. Having done this the FBI agent Emmanuel Harris closed the case and got the Falconer parents stuck in jail with a life sentence. Aiden and Meg escaped from the government and are now fugitives running for their lives and trying to find Uncle Frank so that the case can be opened again and their parents would be found not guilty.
"At this point in the story state police are everywhere and Aiden and Meg's mug shots are becoming very famous. The only way to get anywhere is by boat. Aiden and Meg have traced Uncle Frank to Denver. Therefore they stowaway on a boat headed for Denver. In the process they are caught while there is no land in sight and make a break for it during a storm."
Here's what Elizabeth liked best about the book.
"I liked the way Gordon Korman told the part about the storm and how they have to fight to stay afloat or they know they will be killed!!!"
Was there anything she didn't like about the book?
"The only part I didn't like was when Agent Harris fell asleep while guarding Aiden. It made it way too easy for Aiden and Meg to escape.
That is just about all I have to say about this series and book. I hope that someday you will pick up the first book in this series and then want to read the rest of the series. The books are pretty short, but they are awfully exciting and filled with details."
So, how did Elizabeth rate On the Run: The Stowaway Solution by Gordon Korman?
Elizabeth gave it four out of five blue dragons.
