    This is an amazing Book!

    The Main Idea of the book is about a two siblings named Aden and Megan and Megan gets kidnapped. I think this is a great book for middle school students. A white van with dark windows pulled up and took Megan and drove off, Aden tried his best to chase after the van, but it was no use. He went to notify his parents that recently got out of jail for something they did not do. The family was in a mess and now this did not help. They immediately went into action and tried there best to find her. Megan tried to escape many times but every time she was got. You have to read book two to find out more. Megan and Aden where very good to each other, they predicted each other when they were running away from cops and people. In conclusion, this book is a very good book at the end it gives you a mystery then you have to read the other books to get the whole story. My final review is that it was a very good book and you need to read it.

    one of a kind you must check it out !

    The kidnapped book is the best out of all of them from book 1 to book 3. when I read the blurb i knew i would love the book. IT caught my eye, I love books with mystery and suspicion. when I started reading i couldn't stop i read it every where . I finished the book in four days and thats only because i couldn't I couldn't read it every second of the day. My opinion is that the book is great and I thought i needed to put that out there.

    my opinion/review

    This book was awesome i really enjoyed it and i think it was overall well written. you definitely have to read the series before to really grasp the whole story and reasoning behind this series. but all in all i felt it it was an awesome gripping book that really pulled you in and made you have to read and read never wanting to put the book away or even down.

    11 year old Meg and 15 year old Aiden were brother and sister and the main characters. They are the son and daughter of parents that were arrested as traitors. The parents were released when it was found they were innocent. Meg and Aiden were fugitives on the run befor their arrest and continue to use what they learned. The Plot of the book begins when the family is trying to get their lives back to normal. On the way home from school one day, Meg was kidnapped by two men and a woman wearing masks. Aiden fought to free her but they got away. While Meg plots to get free, Aiden teams up with the FBI to search for clues to find Meg. The kidnappers want 2 million dollars for Meg. The story gets very exciting when Aiden gets closer and closer to his sister. Meg is hidden in Alexandria, Virginia and ends in the middle of a circus parade. The theme of the book is a brother's love for his sister. I liked the book because it was exciting. You know what Meg and Aiden are both thinking and doing during the story. Meg and Aiden felt at times like outsiders in their own town, like they had no friends. I have felt like that before too. The story continues to another book and I can't wait to read it.

    mystery mystery read all about it!

    One day when Aiden and his little sister Meg were walking home from school, a white van pulls up. Meg¿s been kidnapped! There¿s no way Aiden can stop it from happening. Aiden has to team up with the FBI tracking down clues only a brother can recognize. Kidnapped is a great and exciting book that will keep you hooked! Meg is a tough, brave and positive girl that will never stop trying to escape, Aiden will never stop being a terrific brother that will never stop searching for Meg. This book is a very believable, fun and exiting book but does not get solved in the end. To find out what happens check out book two The Search.

    Picture this--you and your sibling are walking home from school and all of a sudden, someone is attacking you and trying to kidnap you. Then instead of taking both of you they just take your younger sibling. Well, this happened to ex-fugitive Aiden Falconer. The FBI accused his parents of doing something illegal so they went to jail for almost a year while Aiden and Meg were running away from the police so they wouldn¿t have to go into a temporary home. Then the FBI figured out they falsely accused the Falconers. When they got out of jail there were a lot of people who still believed they had done something wrong. Aiden and Meg called them Falconer-haters. One day after school they were coming home from the bus and this van drives by slowly. They think nothing of it, but then it stops and two people come out and start attacking them. They can¿t get Aiden, so they take Meg and drive off. After Aiden tries to chase after the van and can¿t catch it, he runs home and tells his parents. They call the local police. Then the FBI gets involved, so they call in special agent Emanuel Harris--the same agent who had arrested the Falconer parents in the first place. They tell the media. They hope they can find her soon! THE ABDUCTION is great! It is the beginning of a three book series, KIDNAPPED. Gordon Korman really knows how to write a suspenseful book and make you want to read more and more. There are so many twists and turns, this book is sure to keep you on edge! **Reviewed by: Frizzie

    I Also Recommend:

    For fans of On The Run...

    If you loved the first series about Aiden and Meg Falconer, then you'll love this series. And even if you didn't read the first, you may still love it. The characters are believable and the story is suspenseful, and the series can be funny and sweet at points. It may be a bit unrealistic, but the characters and story make it pretty amazing. It's for a very wide age group - from middle schoolers up, I would say. I personally am a high school student who still loves the series, and highly recommend it.
