Running through Shadows is a book based on three fictional
characters, who are nineteen years old and homeless. The
three characters, Chris, Peter, and Rosa, live in the back of
a van in a rural town and survive by stealing from the local
members of the community and local shop owners. Their
routine is abruptly interrupted after they steal money from
the local church and are eventually caught. This incident
causes Peter to reflect on his path in his life, and he begins
to steer the three of them into a more productive direction.
However, their lives take another dramatic turn, when after
a scuffle with two other youths, it brings police involvement
back into their lives again. This results in Chris and Peter
finding out about Rosa's and her family's suspicious past,
which is soon followed by kidnapping and desperation
by the main characters to keep everyone safe.
