Your mothers gone Michael. What do you mean she's gone? Police believe she's been kidnapped. My heart froze, kidnapped, why would somebody kidnap my mother? In this book, a fourteen year old boys mother is kidnapped. they don't want his mother, they want him. Michael is not an average fourteen year old boy, he is special, with a power that is beyond imagine. And this is wanted. He will have to use his power to get his mother back from a powerful, wealthy man who has a vision to change the world with the help of "gifted" children like Michael. He has to make smart choices, for everything he does can be used against him. For him to get his mother back, he will have to beat Hatch, but Hatch has some help. The passage I chose was "The pop and spray of gunfire echoed in the stairwell and a concussion grenade exploded behind Hatch and the guards. One of the guards emerged from the stairwell. "Dr. Hatch, the GP's are attacking from below. We cant hold them for long. There's at least two dozen of them." I chose this passage because of the vivid description, it showed how intense the gunfight was. Also, the short choppy dialogue of the guard showed the desperation of their situation, almost as if he and the rest of the guards had lost hope. If you want a fast paced, action packed, keep you on the edge of your seat book this is definitely for you. It is hard to put down and a great read. I highly recommend this book.
