I Am the Cheese by Robert Cormier. Cormier never makes things easy for us and this is one of his most mind-boggling. Adam is riding his old, almost unrideable bike toward a hospital in Vermont where, he is convinced, his father waits for him.
There are flashbacks, excerpts from taped interviews between Adam and a mysterious "interviewer". It is through them that the horror of Adam's existence is gradually revealed. We learn that Adam and his mother and father have been relocated through a witness protection program—a fact that was not shared with Adam until he discovered some evidence on his own. However, his father has kept the specifics of the testimony from Adam for his own protection.
Gradually, Adam discovers that the manipulation hasn't ended there and with him we find out what's happened to his parents.

For a long time, we don't know why Nathan was the intended victim, but we are on his side as Nathan takes flight.
