"Now Pastor Dan starts to sound desperate. 'Lev, listen to me. Listen to me carefully. No one else know you're gone. As far as anyone knows, you've been tithed...Don't you see Lev? You can save yourself'" (Shusterman 80).
"Then, feeling the coldness of the steel against his fingertips, he pulls the fire alarm" (Shusterman 81).
While trying to escape the fire, Connor and Risa meet Hannah, a teacher at the school. She helps them and tells them to go to the antique shop down the road and ask for Sonia.
Lev draws attention to Connor, Risa, and Didi. Risa claps and that immediately distracts the police.
"The baby in Risa's arm bawls, but its cries are nothing compared to the screams of the mob. In a moment they are across the street, and gone with the crowd" (Shusterman 88).
Connor and Risa find Sonia and she leads them to a hatch and underneath the antique shop are more unwinds in hiding.
