Captive

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Review

Robyn is scared. Ever since the attempted assassination of her dad, the British prime minister, she dreads leaving home. Especially when he's staying in Downing Street and she's off to her grandparents' country estate. But this time, the animal rights activists aren't after the prime minister. It's Robyn they want.

Kidnapped at gunpoint, incarcerated in a tiny cell, Robyn wonders how far her dad will go to secure her release. Doubts about lies and corruption at the heart of government start to fester. At the same time, she grows close to one of her captors - the boy with regret and melancholy in his captivating green eyes…

A gripping read and a moving exploration of identity, celebrity, loyalty, politics and power.
