This is a new title in the series that is exclusive to Follett!

Escape From...the Terrorist Attack of 9/11 

Tony is excited to start middle school. He's curious to meet new kids and is looking forward to the first field trip of the year. Tony's sixth-grade class is visiting his dad's office in the World Trade Center, one of the tallest buildings in New York City! Meanwhile, Elizabeth misses her old school and her old friends in Queens. So, the thought of spending a whole day watching her new classmates make jokes and play around on a field trip has her feeling anxious. Then, the unthinkable happens. Airplanes have been flown into each of the World Trade Center towers, and in an instant, the world is turned upside down. Elizabeth and Tony are separated from their class and need to rely on each other to survive one of the worst terrorist attacks in American history.

Escape From...Hurricane Katrina 

For twins Jo Jo and Sophie Dupre, Hurricane Katrina isn’t the most important thing on their minds – not compared to their mother's cancer treatments, Sophie’s swim meet, and Jo Jo’s upcoming coding competition. But when the storm intensifies and there’s only one seat in their aunt’s car, Mom has to be the one to evacuate. The twins and their father are stuck at home in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans.

Escape From...Pompeii 

Mount Vesuvius is ready to erupt, threatening to destroy the city of Pompeii and everyone who lives there. Will new friends Thalia and Felix be able to escape, or are they destined to be buried under rock and ash?


Escape From...the Titanic 

The unsinkable Titanic is not quite what Sarah expected. Instead of dining with movie stars, she finds herself having more fun in steerage with the family of her new friend, Patrick, a bellboy. He shows her all the secrets that the greatest ship in the world has to offer, like heated swimming pools and first-class cabins. But then… disaster! The ship crashes into an iceberg, and water begins rushing into the lower decks. The Titanic is going down fast into the deep, icy Atlantic. Can Sarah find her new friends in time? Can Patrick do his duty and also save himself? Will either of them manage to escape one of the deadliest shipwrecks in history?
