About this title


Visiting relatives in Turkey Meredith becomes involved in efforts to free her uncle a hostage negotiator for a Quaker peace mission who is taken hostage by an Islamic terrorist group

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up-- Seventeen-year-old Meredith Blake is spending time in Istanbul tending to her pregnant aunt's two children when she is faced with a Delphic choice--a choice between public and private duty. While acting as a hostage negotiator, her uncle is kidnapped by a terrorist organization who wants Meredith to relay messages between them and the United States government. Readers will be drawn into Meredith's dilemma as she realizes that the wrong choice could endanger many lives. While some passages are slightly didactic, Johnston weaves an adventurous story rich with the color of the Middle East. Teens will admire the intelligence and strength of the main character and will be intrigued by the excitement and mystery of the plot. Readers who have enjoyed Norma Johnston's other titles will find this one to be equally satisfying. --Linda L. Lowry, Baltimore County Public Library, Towson
