Sometimes you have to go home to find out who you really are.
Charlie West went to bed one night an ordinary high-school student. He woke up a hunted man. Terrorists are trying to kill him. The police want to arrest him for the stabbing death of his best friend. He doesn’t know whose side he’s on or who he can trust. With his pursuers closing in on every side, Charlie makes his way back to his hometown to find some answers. There, holed up in an abandoned mansion, he’s joined by his friends in a desperate attempt to discover the truth about a murder he can’t remember—and the love he can never forget.

THE LONG WAY HOME
This book keep me reading and enjoying every word of it, it was sad at the end and I felt so bad for Charlie in prison, with all that he went thru and to come out with his family knowing what he did for his country, this made me cry. But I so enjoyed the books very much. Will look for more of his books, he is a writer that has got my attention. Thank you for the good reading material.
This is a great read for young adult boys, and as a one-time young adult myself, a great read for me too. I didn't realize it was book 2 of a series until Amazon invited me to rate the book, which is a good thing. The book stands on its own, although I was wondering at certain points why the backstory wasn't the story (I understand now). Parents will appreciate the fact that the protagonist, although a fugitive, is a principled person with developed moral character.
I enjoyed the first volume of this series, "The Last Thing I Remember," but the second volume "turns up the volume" on the action and suspense. The central mystery gets only more murky, as suspicion falls upon the last person you'd suspect. My reading list is overfull right now, but somehow I always find time for this book series--a sure sign that Klavan is doing something right.
