Davies Stephen OutlawJake is not unhappy at his posh British boarding school but life is BORING there He and his friends have a game of Geothimble going where they steal an object from someone else hide it and that person has to use GPS technology to get it While playing this game Jake ends up walking over a wall into a prison and then gets kicked out of school He ends up with his ambassador father in Burkina Faso which is better than being at school At a fancy dinner one night he and his sister Kas get kidnapped Excitement is a good thing kidnapping is not Jake and his sister must use their wiles to survive At first they think they have been kidnapped by Yakuuba Sor a wanted outlaw who operates on the Robin Hood principal of taking the righting of wrongs into his own hands but when they escape their kidnappers and find themselves in Sor's camp they know that something else is going on Jake's father the police and the British secret service are all after Sor so he must get them back to their father and prove his innocence This means uncovering the problems in the police force which makes Sor even of a targetStrengths This was a wonderful adventure book and a twist on the usual spy tale Jake and Kas do not take their situation likely and realize that they are in real danger and need to cooperate with their captors The exotic setting is a huge plus I gave this to Surly Teen Boy who really liked the story and hopefully learned something about being kidnapped They've had a problem with some of that in the Philippines lately so he should be prepared Will look for by this authorWeaknesses This is rather violent with at least three people being killed It's not done gratuitously and points out some important information about the characters involved but I mention it in case students are sensitive to it
