Chase: Get Ready to Run

Reviewed by:

International best-selling author Linwood Barclay pens his first middle-grade novel, blending science fiction, mystery and adventure into an exciting story that celebrates friendship and loyalty between dogs and humans. Chipper, a bionic dog implanted with artificial intelligence, escapes the ominous “Institute,” a top secret organization that fuses technology with canines to create spies who can communicate with people. When his path collides with Jeff, a vulnerable twelve-year-old boy whose parents died in an horrific airplane explosion, and who is now living with his strict aunt, the two discover that Chipper’s arrival is not random. Along with a tech-savvy friend named Emily, the trio are soon caught up in a suspenseful adventure, trying to escape from the men in black suits, from super technology and from explosions in a game of chase that puts them in grave danger. A twisted cliff-hanger ending ensures that animal-loving young readers seeking action-packed entertainment will be anticipating the next book in the series.
