"Equally successful are the integrated flashbacks, which not only flesh out this grim future world where currency easily trumps lives and children are more commodities than individuals but also give glimpses into the motivations of the kidnappers."
From the Publisher
Editors Note Set in 2035 where the children of the privileged class are kidnapped for ransom on a regular basis, Charity Meyers becomes the latest victim when her security detail fails one morning, but as she awaits the money and her release, Charity comes to realize that she is in an especially dangerous situation when the identities of her kidnappers are finally revealed.
Annotation Staggering wealth, professional kidnappers, and virtual reality mix together in this fast-paced young adult novel set decades into the future. As the protected child of the wildly rich, Charity Miller is completely versed in how to handle a possible kidnapping, the most recent wave of crime in a world where rich and poor are miles apart. But when she's taken on the morning of the first day of 2036, things don't go quite as planned....Edward Bloor is also the author of LONDON CALLING and TANGERINE.
