I gave this book to my granddaughter, who is a voracious reader. She loved it. Actually she couldn't put it down. Once she picked it up, she had to read it to the end. She is 9 years old and can't wait for Eve's next book to come out. Marilyn Wellesley

I read the book before it was published at our school library for a school project and it was to this day 2 years after the most exilerating book I have ever read. It makes you shake in suspense, and ask questions about your self. I asked myself reapetedly throughout the book if I thought I could do what she did. Great book, any one who has the chance should read it.

Thirteen-year-old Lucy Hoffman dreams of exploring the wilds of Africa - the hot desert sands beating around her and exotic animals around every corner for her to study. This wouldn't be so ironic if she didn't already live in Africa. As the daughter of the American ambassador, Lucy spends her days cooped up in a guarded compound in Ethiopia with only school and the occasional game drive through the local wildlife park to keep her entertained. She even got in major trouble when she snuck off to visit the marketplace with her two native friends. Her mother actually sent out a SWAT team of marines to retrieve her! Once she's finally allowed out again after that little incident, she and her friend Tana decide to sneak off for a concert at a local restaurant...and Lucy ends up kidnapped. Now, she really is out in the bush, fighting for her life and trying to escape her captors. She never thought she'd be exploring Africa this way, and all she wants to do now is return home. During her captivity and escape, we catch a glimpse into her memories as she travels back, thinking of different times in her life and how they've brought her to today. With limited access to food and water, and having no idea where in Ethiopia she is, Lucy must use her wits and acquired knowledge of African ecology to survive and find a way home. This endearing story about a headstrong, intelligent heroine is based on an actual incident that took place in Ethiopia in 2005. Although the real tale involved a native villager, this book works to bridge the gap between nationalities and point out that people of all cultures have the same goals, hopes, fears, and dreams.
