The Russia Chronicles One: The Streets of Moscow
by Andrew Anzur Clement
Sixteen-year-old Peter Greenfield didn’t want to go to Moscow. When his Foreign Service officer parents are called on an emergency mission to Russia, he is left with little choice but to get dragged along.
The trip starts off with Red Square, the Kremlin and the sights of the city – what any tourist would expect. Then an anti-government protest breaks out. His parents run toward the unrest – along with him.
Lost in the body crush, separated from his parents and his American passport, Peter is rescued by a band of teenagers: children fleeing broken homes and struggling to survive on their own in Moscow’s subway system.
Unable to return to the US embassy, Peter must now throw in his lot with the band of homeless youth who have taken him in. Reluctant, and unable to speak Russian at first, he begins to discover Moscow’s secret underworld as he grows closer to his newfound friends, including a resolute but caring girl named Tanya. Together, they face the indifference, hunger, and corruption that are a part of life for Russia’s street children. Life or death could hinge on outsmarting a former member of their gang turned politically powerful enemy, and breaking into some of the Russian government’s most heavily fortified facilities.
As Peter and his friends fight to live another day, he begins to question whether Peter Greenfield still exists, or if he will ever be able to leave behind life on the streets of Moscow.

The Russia Chronicles Two: The Siberian Spirit
by Andrew Anzur Clement
A desperate band of Russian street kids has been forced to flee their hideout in Moscow’s Second Subway. Totally unprepared to survive in the sub-freezing countryside, they have only one hope: to reach a hidden Slavic pagan sanctuary called The Lake.
Peter Greenfield no longer thinks of returning to his former life as the pampered son of American diplomats. Now known as Pyotr Bolshoiov, his more immediate problem is to survive the brutal Russian winter and keep his new family of “small homeless” together.
Katya, a glue addict from an impoverished Siberian family, may be the key to the group’s survival. The secrets hidden in her family tree could also make her a threat to the Russian government’s hold on power. She must outwit a ruthless agent of the Federal Security Bureau, who will stop at nothing to take his own personal revenge on Katya and the rest of her bunch.
