Very well written book. The only thing that I didn't like was the ending which was to abrupt. It left me wondering with many questions. I liked the way the author made this book have a "real" feel to it. Also, the whole Stockholm syndrome, very interesting. I have to wonder however, if I was confused as an adult, how confused a "young adult" would be. Spending the time to give a clearer ending would have made this book much much better.

I loved this book! I have reread this book more times than I can count! The first few chapters are a little hard to get into but once I did I couldn't put the book down! I would definitely recommend it!

I'm not sure about this book. It took a while for me to get into it, then I really enjoyed most of the middle, but then I was disappointed by the end. I wish the book were longer, so the reader could have learned more about The Hostage-Taker, I found him very intriguing. I also would have like to know what happened to Chloe after the presented ending. There were too many details left open-ended for me to really like the book. I need things wrapped up nicely with a happy ending! I don't think there should be wondering as to what happened, not in this type of book.

A friend recommended me this. What to say about this book. The writing, the pacing even the pictures now and then add to the atmosphere and tone of the book. Makes you wonder near the end, if there will be a sequel or if its better left without one. A short but quick and interesting read.

Thanks to Brigitte Waisberg at Annick Press for providing this copy for review. Chloe, in Greece with her best friend Angie, is kidnapped and held for three months. During that time, she appears to suffer from Stockholm Syndrome, falling in love with her captor, who she refers to as her "hostage-taker." The book begins and ends with Chloe writing her version of events for U.S. government officials, sanitized to protect her captor; the majority of the book details the daily events of the imprisonment and the efforts of her mother and friend to facilitate her release. The psychological aspects of the imprisonment on Chloe will interest teens; references to Patty Hearst might inspire research into that case.
