RUNNER, by Carl Deuker

Should Chance take the money and run?

Should Chance take the money and run?

Chance Taylor’s life stinks – his dad is an alcoholic, they can’t make the slip payment on the boat where they live, his mom ran out on them – so it seems like a no-brainer when someone offers him a chance to make some easy money.  What could go wrong?  All Chance has to do is run, check a local cliff for hidden packages, and drop them off somewhere else.  Sure, he knows it’s probably something illegal, but the money will pay the bills and buy food.  Does he really have any other choice?

Chance learns the hard truth about unintended consequences in this gripping book for 8th graders and up.
