TAKEN, by Edward Bloor

Will she still be alive in 24 hours?

Will she still be alive in 24 hours?

In Charity’s futuristic world, kidnapping is a major growth industry and kids are even taught “the rules” about being kidnapped:  be nice, don’t try to run away, and hope that your parents pay up soon.  

 

But something goes wrong after Charity is taken, and suddenly the rules aren’t working for her anymore.  She knows that if the ransom isn’t paid within 24 hours, she’ll probably be killed.  What can she do in a situation where literally, nothing is quite what it seems?
