Publisher's Summary

Eli Frieden lives in the most perfect town in the world: Serenity, New Mexico. In this idyllic place, every lawn is perfectly manicured, and everyone has a pool and a tree house. Honesty and integrity are valued above all else. The 30 kids who live there never lie--they know it's a short leap from that to the awful problems of other, less fortunate places.
Eli has never left Serenity. Why would he ever want to? Then one day he bikes to the edge of the city limits, and something so crazy and unexpected happens, it changes everything. Eli convinces his friends to help him investigate further, and soon it becomes clear that nothing is as it seems in Serenity. The clues mount to reveal a shocking discovery, connecting their ideal, crime-free community to some of the greatest criminal masterminds ever known. The kids realize they can trust no one--least of all their own parents....
This is the first book in a thrilling new series from best-selling (noncriminal) mastermind Gordon Korman.

Good story, some narration needs work

My kids love this story. I do too but one of the narrators uses a lisp whenever he narrates his experience of one of the female characters or a weaker male character and that narration is nothing short of offensive and really difficult to listen to; it actually ruined some of the story for me. The other narrators' performances are wonderful.

Good book, terrible ending.

I can't belive that's how it ends. That's one way to sell more books. Of course I will have to buy the next one, or should I say the rest of the story.
