Title:  Seconds away : a Mickey Bolitar novel

Author:  Harlan Coben

Collection:  Teen Books

This action-packed second book in international bestseller Harlan Coben’s Mickey Bolitar young adult series follows Mickey as he continues to hunt for clues about the Abeona Shelter and the mysterious death of his father—all while trying to navigate the challenges of a new high school.  When tragedy strikes close to home, Mickey and his loyal new friends—sharp-witted Ema and the adorkably charming Spoon—find themselves at the center of a terrifying mystery involving the shooting of their classmate Rachel. Now, not only does Mickey need to keep himself and his friends safe from the Butcher of Lodz, but he needs to figure out who shot Rachel—no matter what it takes.  Mickey Bolitar is as quick-witted and clever as his uncle Myron, but with danger just seconds away, it is going to take all of his determination and help from his friends to protect the people he loves, even if he does not know who—or what—he is protecting them from.
One of my favorite new series for teens, Harlan Coben has created a fantastic character in Mickey Bolitar and his friends Ema and Spoon.  Shelter, the first book in the series, was a book that I was unable to put down, and Seconds Away was the same.  If you are a fan of suspenseful adventure featuring characters that are easy to root for, this is not to be missed.
