4 out of 5

WOW! Honestly, I don’t remember reading a YA thriller before so I have no close comparison to this thrilling read.  In my younger years, I loved Christopher Pike books so I hoped I would enjoy this YA thriller. I was NOT disappointed.  I loved how the story was a roller coaster of an adventure. The entire story took place over only three days and was so action-packed I didn’t want to stop listening.  Henry developed a great protagonist, Cady, who was a tough strong teenager and never stopped giving up. My only disappointment was that I felt the ending was a little rushed, but it does still provides some great intensity. This is a must read for teens and adult fans of a good YA novel. I really hope teens vote for this novel to be a Teens’ Top Ten award winner.
