The Smart Kid
Bob Miller, author
The kids at school call him The Smart Kid. The counselor calls him a mystery with no history. But Michael Shale is just trying to lay low and hide in plain sight so that his past doesn’t catch up to his present. He looks like an ordinary boy, but he holds a biological secret that the powerful and arrogant Senator Perkins would kill for. Michael Shale remembers what it was like to be a military lab rat. He’d rather die than be captured again. When he’s discovered, the school counselor and a special person from his past convince Michael to stop running and to start fighting, or he just may get his death wish.
