What would you do if you had to recreate yourself every couple of months?  How would you live knowing that you could never truly make friends because they could be dead if you did?  How would you  get out of bed every morning with the knowledge that someone was searching non-stop for you because they wanted you dead?

Alex Miller can answer those questions because he is living this life.  He and his mother have moved at least seven times, changed identities, changed cities in the last two years.  Two years ago, Alex watched his father be killed by a business associate and then was nearly killed himself by the same man.  Since then, that man has paid many associates to hunt Alex and his mom down to kill them.  The real question is, what do you do when you canít run anymore-when the bad guys have you cornered and your trapped?  Read Fakie and find out.  (Book Talk Author: Tobye Ertelt, The Colorado Blue Spruce Award nominee 2012)
