Hostage Three of the title is Amy Fields, the privileged 17-year-old girl who also serves as this novel's narrator. For the moment, however, Amy has become the chattel of Somali pirates; her father and stepmother's plans for an around-the-world sailing fallen disastrously wrong. Nick Lake's teen novel, however, isn't simply a nail-biting thriller about tense hostage negotiations; it's also the story of a confused teenager still nursing wounds over her mother's suicide and beginning to sort out some very adult issues. An unconventional, winning fiction.
