Savannah's ramshackle lifeâdrifting from home to home with every new boyfriend her mother findsâhas forced her to become tough, physically and mentally. It's no wonder she's drawn to the teachings of Bruce Lee, who espouses serenity and flexibility above all. She has to use everything she's learned when she is forcefully abducted by a mysterious man who calls himself "Sir." Taken to an unknown location and locked inside a darkened RV, Savannah must rely on all her skills and witsâas well as the help of a previous kidnapping victimâto free herself before "Sir" enacts his ultimate plans. After setting up the basic cast, the story immediately settles into the main plot of Savannah desperately trying to escape her makeshift prison. Heightening the tension is Henry's choice to tell the story from the alternating first-person perspectives of all the characters, from Savannah's potential love interest to the kidnapper himself. With a simple plot and relentless pace, this thrill-ride of a book will absolutely satisfy readers looking for pulse-quickening action and smart, resilient heroes. Grades 9-11.
