by Ehi Ike
Fourteen-year-old Mimi Jones does not live in a million-dollar home or carry a Coach handbag. So she is more than a little frightened when she sees a news story saying Congress has passed a law that children from lower-income families will be taken from their parents. But before she can gather more information, Mimi and her friend Brittney are violently snatched from Mimi's home, bound and gagged, and taken to the middle of nowhere, where a band of teenagers and children are being held against their will. Mimi and the other captives are split into groups and forced to walk almost nonstop for thirty days. When they discover that they are to be killed because their parents make less than $50,000 a year, Mimi and her new friends must devise a plan to overtake their leaders and escape before time runs out!
Taken Away by Ehi Ike is a fast-paced thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Teens who love a good suspenseful adventure won't be able to stop turning the pages as they walk with Mimi and her new companions through the uninhabited wilderness. Will they thwart the enemies' plans and return home after being Taken Away?
