I liked this installment (plot) better than the last one. Luke Garner is pretending to be Lee Grant at a school filled with hidden third children when Lee's younger brother Smits shows up at the school. The Grants are a powerful (Baron) family, but Luke feels pity for Smits and his grief. Luke is quickly caught up in a plot to determine why Lee was killed, with a number of competing interests with vastly different agendas. ( )

Once again, a fun read, but nothing special. The plot of this one was interesting, I certainly want to know what's going to happen.
And I really liked Smits... He was super sweet.

Yeah, I literally have nothing left to say about this book. ( )

Absolutely loved the ending.

Luke is safe. He saves Smits. And he's even able to give Smits parents that will take care of him ( )

(see Book 1) Luke/Lee learns that even kids who should hate him have issues he can help them with. The technology in the books is "antiquated" now, but would have been up-to-date at the time of writing. Some use is made of the idea of internet connections being spied on, but not highly developed or integral to the plot in the beginning. The author's presentation of the complex adult world of politics and socio-economic classes is basically reduced to "rich and privileged" barons versus everybody else. ( )
