Taken by Edward Bloor


Bloor takes on lots of social issues here in a story about a kidnapped teen. As the disparity between the rich and poor grow, kidnappings in the year 2035 become commonplace. Despite strong security, Charity wakes to find herself in an ambulance with some strange captors. Bloor creates a very exciting tale, though some plot elements were just too simple and the social commentary just didn't quite ring true to me. Decent read but a NAY.

This was another book I inadvertently read.. I thought it was compelling right up until the end, but I think Kip is right that certain elements of the social commentary didn't ring quite true. I would say Maybe or Nay.

This one was hard to get into at first, but I'm glad I stuck with it. Still, I have to give it a NAY.
