Nine Days by Fred Hiatt Book PDF Summary

A fast-paced contemporary thriller in the vein of James Patterson and Anthony Horowitz set against the bustling backdrop of Hong Kong, Vietnam, and the border of China. This heart-pounding adventure takes place as two teens, an American teenage boy and his friend, a Chinese girl from his Washington, DC-area high school, must find her father who has been kidnapped—and they only have nine days. Although the characters in the novel are fictionalized, they are based on a real Chinese family who were part of the Chinese Democracy Movement and inspired this story. "Few mysteries combine cultural diversity, politics and physical danger with a lighthearted friendship. This engaging mix will have great appeal."—Kirkus Reviews "A captivating thriller grounded in real-world problems."—Publishers Weekly "A rollicking and fast-paced young adult adventure novel."—South China Morning Post "Hiatt...offers middle-school-aged readers an appealing mix of action and friendship, with lessons about world events and human rights woven throughout."—Washington Post Book World “A compelling, teen-centric political thriller . . . inspired by actual events.”—BooklistOnline.com A NCSS/CBC Notable Children's Trade Book in the Field of Social Studies
