Although it wraps up the continuing plot threads from the previous volume, RENEGADE feels somehow unnecessary until the very end. There are fresh revelations and narrative twists, but much of the book is taken up by the repetition of previous actions: boat chases, shoot-outs, attacks by rats, and squabbling among Thomas and his family. The catchphrase for this volume is: "The power of many is greater than the power of one." Perhaps two books in this series would have had a greater impact than three.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
