In 2035, kidnapping is a growth industry and the children who live enclosed in guarded estates are taught tactics in school about how to act and cooperate if they happen to be "taken." This book begins with Charity awakening to discover that is exactly what has happened to her. She has been taken. But by who? Why her? And will her family cooperate fully?

This book was a fast, suspenseful read that had a few nice plot twists I didn't see coming from a mile away. While I may have rolled my eyes once or twice at the "be true to yourself" and "figure out how to really live life to the fullest" messages that cropped up in the end, I confess that I actually liked the ending, no matter how sappy. I definitely had a smile on my face as I turned the last page, and that is not something I can say for every book. :-)
