In Casimir Pulanski Juvenile Detention Center, there is a boy named Shreve. He sells candy, which is (of course) against the rules. One day, he gets a new roomate named Jack who has 2 extra fingers and 2 extra toes. He also has powers, that certain people want to train him to use. Shreve and Jack decide to escape from these people, which means escaping from Juvie.
This book, by John Horner Jacobs, is about them running, and figuring things out about themselves, and just trying to survive.
I think this was a good book. There is a lot of adventure, but Jacobs writes a lot of character development into the story. It's well written and easy to follow and there is a conclusion that makes you feel like the book is finished, but it also makes you want to read more.
