Set in 1939 as the world goes to war RUN FOR IT! follows the cross-country path of two teenage American boys who witness a murder and run for their lives.
To the killers who are after them, Robert Bell and Merwyn Peterson look like easy prey. And they are -- a couple of yearlings separated by wolves from the herd.
Afraid to confide in their parents or go to the police, the boys try to escape their pursuers by staying close behind them - tailing them from Chicago to New York City and up the Atlantic coast to Eastport, Maine.
There, finally, in the Bay of Fundy, off Campobello Island, where the Roosevelts have their "little cottage," (twenty rooms!) the boys are caught.
They face a fate worse than death.
What they need, besides ingenuity and courage, is a miracle.
RUN FOR IT! is a coming of age story that will be enjoyed by readers of all ages from teens to senior adults.
