Charlie West just woke up in someone else's nightmare.
He's strapped to a chair. He's covered in blood and bruises. He hurts all over. And a strange voice outside the door just ordered his death.
The last thing he can remember, he was a normal high-school kid doing normal things--working on his homework, practicing karate, daydreaming of becoming an air force pilot, writing a pretty girl's number on his hand. How long ago was that? Where is he now? Who is he really?
And more to the point . . . how is he going to get out of this room alive?

This is one of the best books that i have read in a long time. This book will keep you wanting more and find out what happens next. He leads you into a conclusion you may think is and then he slaps you with the truth. It teaches you about holding onto faith and God no matter the circumstance.
Awesome Start to a New Series.| Posted May 08, 2009
THis is the First YA title by Andrew Klavan. Even though I have not read anything else by him I will definetly check out his other title after reading this one. This is also the first in a series of books.
Charlie is a normal 17 year old high schooler but one day he wakes up strapped into a chair and someone is trying to kill him. The last thing he remembers was going to sleep after the perfect day at school(one in which he did a karate display for the school and his crush wrote her number on his hand). Charlie is told by a friend that what if everything we believe or have been taught is wrong and that nothing is real. Charlie must find out what is real and just what happened between the time he went to sleep and woke up in the chair.
A great book and a great start to the series I know this is geared toward the Young adult crowd but being an adult I found this to be a very suspenseful title and would highly recommend to both youth and adults.
You can go to www.thehomelanders.com to check out the first 3 chapters of the book.
