"Hostage" by Willo Davis Roberts

Kaci wanted some excitement in her life but, there would be no way she would be ready for the excitement that was about to come.
Kaci's parents didn't like the neighborhood they lived in. The parents thought it wasn't safe so they wouldn't let their kids go ride their bike or walk alone. The family decided that they were going to move to safe and expensive house all the way across town. A week after Kaci's parents accepted the offer there was a robbery across the street from their old house. The family reported the robbery to the police and said that there was a white truck in front of their neighbors drive way. Unfortunately the police didn't catch the robbers. In a couple of weeks the family moved into their new home. The home was great. The only thing that was bothering Kaci was her allergies. She tried to forget about it and left for school. Later in the day though she went to the school nurse asking if she could go home to get her allergy medicine. The nurse said it was fine so Kaci left school expecting to be back by lunch time. While walking home her nosy neighbor named Mrs. Banducci stopped her to ask why there was a huge truck in there driveway that morning. Kaci kind of ignored it and kept walking. Kaci first noticed that her door was unlocked. She also notices that there were some items that were missing from the house. That's when she noticed she wasn't along in the house. She knew she had to get out quick but, how could she when the robbers were in the same room as she was in blocking the door. Kaci would get the excitement she wanted but, she would be fighting to save her life.
This fiction book was very suspenseful and addicting . I would rate this book 5 out of 5 . Once I started the book I couldn't put it down.
