Trey has never been very brave.  As a third child, he had never had a chance to be outside and experience a lot of things.  About all he knew of the outside is that it was dangerous and to be avoided at any cost.  And then he met Lee Grant.  Lee taught him to run and how to act outside.  But now Lee has been taken by the Population Police.  Nina has too.  Even Mr. Talbot has been arrested and now Trey is hiding in Mr. Talbot's house.  He is too frightened to do much beyond sitting in the closet.  And yet, his friends have been taken and it will be up to him to help them.  Can he ever muster up the courage he will need?  Find out in the fifth installment of the Shadow Children series.
