9780385742818: Nine Days

A fast-paced contemporary thriller in the vein of James Patterson and Anthony Horowitz set against the bustling backdrop of Hong Kong, Vietnam, and the border of China. This heart-pounding adventure takes place as two teens, an American teenage boy and his friend, a Chinese girl from his Washington, DC-area high school, must find her father who has been kidnapped—and they only have nine days. Although the characters in the novel are fictionalized, they are based on a real Chinese family who were part of the Chinese Democracy Movement and inspired this story.

About the Author:

FRED HIATT is the editorial page editor of The Washington Post. He writes editorials for the newspaper as well as a biweekly column.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 9 Up-Ti-Anna's father is a famous Chinese dissident, living in exile in America. When he disappears during a trip to Hong Kong, she is convinced that she can find him. She and her friend Ethan follow his trail to Vietnam, where they realize that they have walked into the same trap her father encountered. But while he was arrested and taken back to China, Ti-Anna will be sold into slavery. Told by Ethan as part of a court-mandated confession (his parents reported him and their credit card missing), this is a political-action thriller inspired by a true story. Hiatt, an editor and columnist at the Washington Post, got the idea to write Nine Days from the work of dissident Wang Bingzhang's daughter (also named Ti-Anna) to free her father. However, despite the real-world inspiration, the protagonists' adventure (and the adults who offer only halfhearted attempts to stop them) requires a great suspension of disbelief. Ti-Anna, who is the driving force of plot, has several unexplained mood swings. While Ethan's narration is useful to impart background information about modern Chinese history, his inability to speak the language means he has to sum up important conversations after Ti-Anna has debriefed him, which can be distracting.-Jennifer Rothschild, Arlington County Public Libraries, VAα(c) Copyright 2013.
