Che is a precocious young boy raised in isolated privilege by his New York grandmother. Yearning for his famous outlaw parents - radical 1960s activists who are now among the FBI's most wanted - he's denied access to television and the news. But he takes hope from his teenage neighbor, who predicts, "They will come for you, man. They'll break you out of here."One afternoon, the prediction appears to come true. Soon Che, too, is an outlaw, fleeing into the subway and pitched into a journey that leads to a hippie commune in the jungles of tropical Australia. Here, Che slowly, bravely confronts his life, learning that nothing is what it seems.More

"Psychologically astute and diabolically suspenseful." (Booklist)
