Synopsis

Escape! Two Teenagers Become Involved in a Dangerous Plot to Spring a Famous Prisoner from Jail by John Reid

Based on Leon Trotsky's real-life imprisonment in Amherst, Nova Scotia, this adventure tells the tale of 13-year-old Russian Alexi Gertoff and his chance meeting with Lev, Leon Trotsky's son. In the spring of 1917, Lev has come to Amherst to help his father escape from the wartime prison camp and Alexi becomes involved in this dangerous attempt to reunite Trotsky with his family. Following the fast-paced trip of these two young men, this tale is full of unpredictable twists that make for an absorbing read full of suspense and adventure.
