Review for The Kidnapping of Christina Lattimore

 Christina Lattimore, a high school junior, has the life that people dream of. She lives in a big house, her family is wealthy, and her Grandmother is going to pay all of her college tuition. 

But then, while she is coming home late one night, she is kidnapped and drugged. She wakes up in a dark, cold cellar. She learns that her captors are trying to get her grandmother to pay ransom. Even though she gets away unharmed after a few days, she's not safe just yet. Her family thinks that she is the one who created the whole kidnapping scheme.

Even though she is advised against it, Christina knows that she must prove her innocence, no matter what it takes. 


This book was really suspenseful, and kept me hooked to the point that I actually finished it in only 3 days.  I would definitely suggest this to anyone who likes suspense and mystery books. The one thing I really didn't like (even thought it had nothing to do with the story) was that the chapters are long. In a 320 page book, I think there were only about 13 chapters.  Don't let it stop you from reading the book though, I just prefer shorter chapters because it's easier to find a stopping point if you don't plan on sitting down and reading for long periods of time.
