Never figured out where the German mentioned in the beginning of the book fit in the overall story. Other than that one issue, the book is a good read of the story surrounding the staff formed by Moses to break the curse placed on the complaining people in the wilderness by God.
On the Run by Bill Myers Sixteen year-old Zach Dawkins and his thirteen year-old sister Piper are on their way to school with their six year-old little brother Elijah when they witness an accident. A little girl chasing after her run away puppy are both hit by a car. While all eyes are on the little girl, little Elijah picks up the puppy, sits on a curb rocking and whispering. Piper realizes Elijah is not with them and sees him on the curb with the puppy. She’s not the only one. A TV news van arrives on the scene and captures, to Piper’s horror, the lifeless puppy get up. It’s happened—again.
Thus begins an adventure of three kids on the run from an organization that has been tracking Elijah. In the process, they are separated from their parents who are kidnapped by the same organization. The henchmen chasing the kids are comical almost to the point of cartoonish. Throw in a bus ride, crazy inventions and hot-wiring an RV and you have the makings of an exciting adventure.
This is a hard-to-put-down read. If you enjoyed A Wrinkle in Time, you will love this as well.
Zach, Piper, and Elijah are on their way to school when a little girl and her dog are hit by a car. Press arrive on the scene shortly and manage to record six-year-old Elijah perform a miracle. The boy lifted the dead dog into his lap and whispered in its ear and the dog woke up, healthy as could be.When the reporters close in on her brother, Piper knows this isnt a good thing. She grabs him and runs off for the school. But not fast enough. A group of bad guys saw the footage from their hotel room and give chase. Theyve been after this Elijah boy for a while. Now, the Dawkins family is on the run again.This was a fun, short read. I read it to my seven-year-old in an afternoon. As always, Myers creates fun characters with great dialogue. This looks to be a really fun series for younger readers, though for the adult, it reads like a Disney Channel TV show. Good, silly fun. Recommended.
Bill Myers and James Riordan deal with the supernatural for a teen audience in the latest in The Elijah Project series, On The Run. This tale follows siblings Zach and Piper in a supernatural battle to rescue their little brother, Elijah, from the powers of darkness. While evil forces try to take advantage of 6-year old Elijahs gifts, Zach and Piper take it upon themselves to save their brother from impending doom!This is a fast-paced adventure written just for kids! I adore Bill Myers adult fiction, and was nearly equally enthralled with this Zonderkids title. Not only will this novel appeal to budding mystery and suspense readers, but it exposes young minds to Biblical truth and in this case, spiritual warfare. I highly recommend this book.
