Range of Mercy
by C. C. Marks
Charlie disguised herself as a boy, but Thomas knew the truth, and though it put them all in danger, he kept her secret from the others. She didn’t stand a chance against the schemes of the self-appointed leader, Jonas Bannon, if he ever figured out the truth. Doing the right thing didn’t make Thomas a hero. But it did keep him human, and it did put him in range of mercy.
