When he arrives at the training facility, Matthias meets up with some of his friends from the Hendrick's school and begins to plan an escape. With the usual thrills, Haddix creates quite the page-turner and had me cheering and crying for Matthias and his friends throughout the whole book.
It has been said many times that these books are awesome for reluctant readers of both genders, and that is so true. I have recommended this series to so many kids and adults alike and I have never heard a bad report back. If you've never given this series a try, you won't regret doing so!
