The First Escape by G.P. Taylor!

Super cool! What a unique book. If you have a-hard-to-please tween boy (or girl), this is a perfect book. Both my kids read it. My son (11) read it first and then my daughter (1o) picked it up after hearing him talk about the story. This is the FIRST book that they have both read.
The format is half novel, half graphic novel and wholly great!

ABOUT THE BOOK:
G.P. Taylor and the book: The First Escape SaltRiver (August 20, 2008)

The Dopple Ganger Chronicles
BOOK ONE: The First Escape
At Isambard Dunstan’s School for Wayward Children, life is trouble for 14-year-old identical twins Sadie and Saskia Dopple and their friend, former thief Erik Morrisey Ganger. But what starts out as a perfectly normal day of food fights, rioting classmates, fires, and (yawn) threats of expulsion goes suddenly and horribly wrong when a mysterious, wealthy woman appears at the school and adopts Saskia . . . without her sister.

On her own in a mansion full of dark secrets, Saskia stumbles upon a conspiracy that threatens her very life. Meanwhile, in a desperate attempt to find her, Sadie and Erik escape from the orphanage with a gang of enemies in hot pursuit. Faced with madmen, wild dogs, treasure seekers, and an otherworldly visitor with a secret message, the trio must decide who to trust—and what to believe—if they are to survive long enough to find each other again.
