The Finisher By: David Baldacci is about a girl named Vega Jane that lives in Wormwood, alone with her brother, John. Wormwood has a border around it, called the Quag, because all that lies around Wormwood is monsters and creatures beyond imagination. One day, a friend hers, Quentin Herms, is chased by the government for breaking laws and runs out of the border and no one knows what will happen to him, so the government makes up lies that unfortunately, outlaws captured him and killed him. They said that if everybody doesn't start working on a huge wall around Wormwood, they will get sent to prison. Then one day, the government takes Vega Jane's little brother John because they see that he is smart. They then use his brains for the building of the wall. One day, Vega Jane finds a note from Quentin Herms that says if she wants, she can follow him into the Quag. He also sends her coordinates of where he is in the Quag. The government finds out and want to lock her in jail, so she runs away into the Quag with her friend Daniel Delphia. What happens next I will find out in the next book, The Keeper.
