about

The Incredible Journey meets Gordon Korman''s On the Run in this exciting middle-grade thriller.

     Chipper is a very special dog. He''s part of a multi-million-dollar experiment at a secret organization known only as The Institute. The Institute has been experimenting with dogs, melding them with state-of-the-art computer technology. But there''s a problem with Chipper. His natural dog instincts often overrule his computer side. No matter what he''s doing, if he sees a squirrel or a mouse, he''ll drop everything to chase it. So The Institute has decided it''s time to pull the plug on Chipper. Chipper manages a daring escape with a destination in mind, but a team from The Institute, led by the cold-hearted Daggert, is hot on his heels. 
     Twelve-year-old Jeff Conroy lives with his aunt and helps run her lakeside cabin-rental business. Jeff desperately misses his parents, who were killed in a plane crash a year earlier. But at least he''s made one friend: Emily, a computer whiz, who has the coolest fort ever: a trackless, abandoned train station in the middle of the forest.
     After eluding his would-be captors, Chipper boards a bus to the country that ends up taking him to Jeff and Emily, who discover a computer port in Chipper''s collar. Chipper''s arrival is not random, it turns out. He has been looking for Jeff--and now so is Daggert . . .
