Avatar for Laura P. Laura P. said:
This is a story of the rift between rich and poor which has become even more pronounced by 2036, the time of the novel. What good is being rich if you have to live in a virtual prison? How can the rich stand by idle while the poor have no access to health care? What about the responsibility of citizens to help each other and give back to the community for the good of the community and its members and not just because it makes good reality television? These are questions Charity must wrestle with and are also valid in today’s society. Good, thought provoking stuff for teens and adults.

I really enjoyed this thriller about the consequences of our obsession with security, and the growing rift between the very rich and the very poor. The story details the kidnapping of a 15 year old girl who must fight through her terror to find her freedom...but what does freedom really mean anymore?

This book is set in the future where kidnapping is an extremely popular industry. Charity doesn't think about it too much while living in her ultrasafe neighborhood where almost nothing bad happens until she, herself, is taken.
