Taking a shortcut home from school, Shawn and Daniel are strolling down the service lane behind the mall when they see someone being kicked and beaten by three guys. They recognize one of the attackers as a local gang member. Terrified that they might be next, they make a run for the mall entrance, escaping the pursuing boy.

Shawn wants to go to the police when they learn that the kid who was attacked is in critical condition, but Daniel is afraid that the attackers will come after them if they report what they saw. Then they are threatened by other gang members.

The ID card that Daniel lost when he was running from the gang members is turned in to the Police Department and they question Daniel, thinking he might have been involved in the beating that they witnessed. Then, as a severe warning, Daniel, too, is attacked and beaten by those same gang members, and Shawn has to put his own safety at risk to help his friend.

SEE NO EVIL is an exciting story about right and wrong and the gray areas in between, with compelling characters and a plot that is right out of today's headlines. It's a quick, easy read, in a book size that will appeal to those reluctant readers. They will be motivated by the fast-paced action scenes of this high-interest, lower reading level story as presented by Orca Book Publishers, and it's guaranteed to keep their attention riveted on the story to the very end.
