Chapter 17

Risa

  • The teacher takes the baby and allows Connor and Risa to walk out with the rest of the kids.
  • However, they see Alexis talking to the cop…and pointing in their direction. Curses.
  • Risa tells Connor to start clapping. No, they're not trying to turn off the lights in the school but—there's a group of suicide bombers who detonate themselves by clapping.
  • Everyone panics that the clappers have pulled the fire alarm, creating enough commotion for Connor and Risa to escape.
  • They bump into the teacher who directs them to an antique shop and tells them to ask for Sonia.
  • She gives Risa the baby back and disappears into the crowd.
