Publisher's Summary

In the back of Adam Farmer's mind, he always knew there was something not quite right about his family. It was more than just the fact that his dad seemed to be stoically going through the motions or that his sad-eyed mother spent most of her time in her room. Somewhere in the recesses of Adam's memory, he recalled a frantic journey in the middle of the night, hurried like criminals onto a bus, staring out the windows at some dark, malevolent thing none of them could see. Then one day Adam discovers his birth certificates - two of them - among his father's papers, and the first missing piece of the puzzle slides ominously into place.

Award-winning author for young adults Robert Cormier creates tales that help young adults grow and find their places in society. Narrators Jeff Woodman and John Randolph Jones bring a boy's desperate search for the truth vividly to life.

A classic

I read this book as a teenager many years ago. Listening to it again now, it is just as compelling and powerful.

love this book

I've read it in 9th grade but it was required reading so iremember just rushing through it and not reading all of it. Now going back to it I loved it. The narrators were great.
