Taken

portfolio_takenCoverWritten by Erin Bowman

If the Heist will take you then why would your twin brother be left behind? Where did the 18 year old boys go? Why are just the women left behind? What is on the other side of the Wall?

These are questions that Gray wanted answered. He finally decided that he had to find out and the only way he knew how to find out was to go over the Wall. Others who went over the wall were returned the next day…burned dead. Was Gray going to face the same fate? There was only one way to find out…and he had Emma to worry about as well. She went over the wall with him.

Hunger Games watch out!!! Taken is just as thrilling and mysterious. Children are taken away from their family. Those who scale the Wall are killed and returned as examples. Gray had to find the answers. He was locked in a cell, found his brother, ran away leaving Emma behind, found his father, and still had more questions to find answers for.

The author has a way of making the reader think about what may happen in the future if people cannot get along and share resources. Great read. Will there be a sequel? What will they find in Group A? Are they really all dead there? What about Groups B, C, D, and E?
