it was ok
bookshelves: 2012

In 2035, the children of the rich are often kidnapped and held for ransom money, thus these kids are usually kept in gated communities with armed guards and rarely go outside them. Charity has been kidnapped and is waiting for her parents to follow the protocol and pay the money to get her back.

The first 150 pages were a mix of boring flashbacks and boring current-time/in-the-middle-of-the-kidnapping stuff. I guess the flashbacks were there to give you an idea of what life is like in 2035, but in the end, none of it really mattered and, for the most part, this kidnapping could have taken place almost the same way today. Once the flashbacks stopped and the kidnapping scenario got down to business, the book got much better. Still, I felt like it was too little, too late.
