In a recent interview, the authors said, " Leave No Child Behind is an exciting thriller about a terrorist takeover of a rural high school and one teacher's heroic stand against the intruders. It is a novel that pits an "everyday" high school teacher and her volunteer partner against a small cell of ruthless international terrorists in a setting readers will find quite familiar, and yet newly terrifying at the same time. The novel transports readers not only to the classrooms and lunchroom of a typical American high school but also inside the Al Quaida training camps in Afghanistan as well as the situation room at the White House. In this novel readers meet and come to know, and even understand, heroes and cowards, villains and victims, politicians and government servants."
Leave No Child Behind is captivating and the storyline moves swiftly along. A Must read!

I was very surprised by how good this book was, especially since it was by a new author. It was a very engaging read. I hope that Dr. Overbeck will continue writing, and I look forward to reading his next book.
