Escape by R. A. Montgomery takes YOU on an adventure to an alternate, near-distant dystopian universe in the future. 9-12 year old readers will take on a secret spy mission to Dorado, the repressive police state that now occupies New Mexico, Arizona, and Texas. Escape is a companion book to Beyond Escape!

Choose Your Own Adventure Escape is an interactive adventure book in which YOU decide what happens next.

You have recently returned from a top-secret spy operation fighting to topple the so-called democracy in power. Your mission requires you to get information to the revolutionary leaders in Denver. If you don't make it, thousands of lives will be at risk. Should you brave the trip? Is your life worth possibly sacrificing for the greater good, and the promise of freedom?

For readers who enjoyed other titles from the Choose Your Own Adventure series including: The Abominable Snowman by R. A. Montgomery, Journey Under the Sea by R. A. Montgomery, and Beyond Escape! by R. A. Montgomery.

About the Author:

R. A. MONTGOMERY attended Hopkins Grammar School, Williston-Northampton School and Williams College where he graduated in 1958. He pursued graduate studies in Religion and Economics at Yale and NYU. Montgomery was an adventurer all his life, climbing mountains in the Himalaya, skiing throughout Europe and scuba-diving wherever he could. His interested included education, macro-economics, geo-politics, mythology, history, mystery novels and music. He wrote his first interactive book, Journey Under the Sea, in 1976 and published it under the series name The Adventures of You. A few years later Bantam Books bought this book and gave Montgomery a contract for five more, to inaugurate their new children s publishing division. Bantam renamed the series Choose Your Own Adventure and a publishing phenomenon was born. The series has sold more than 260 million copies in over 40 languages. He was married to the writer Shannon Gilligan. Montgomery died in November 2014, only two months after his last book was published.

Review:

After a generation out of print, the original Choose Your Own Adventure series is back. First published in 1979, the books let readers remix their own stories-and face the consequences... Some of the revised Choose titles include a heavy dose of gravitas. Escape and Beyond Escape explore the collapse of the American empire due to what Montgomery calls ''political and economic entropy.'' --Wired Magazine
