The book I read this summer was called public enemy number two. Public enemy is a great book. It is about 13 year old Nick Diamond getting in trouble because he was in a jewelry robbery and the robber puts a Diamond ring in Nick's pocket. Nick is sent to prison and meets Johnny Powers who has been in prison more than once. Nick and johnny have to escape prison for school. Public enemy is a great book.

       I would recommend this book for people that like reading about people that like reading about people escaping and hiding from the police and about people getting bombed would like this book. The creators were normal people like you and me and that they were my age because I could relate them to me and things I do.  (Joey, K-12 student)
