Review

Eleven year-old Jackie and her father travel to Italy for her spring break. While driving back to her hotel on the Italian countryside, Jackie's father suddenly collapses behind the wheel and has a heart attack. Not knowing any Italian or how to dial the police on a Italian phone, she decides to try to flag down a car. Fear for her father's life quickly turns into terror when two Italian men kidnap her and take her to a remote house in the country. Jackie soon realizes that her kidnappers are actually a family, plagues by a mysterious secret.

This book is a must read. The suspense in this book will have you wanting more. This book isn't eerie or soppy and has a very good story line. I would recommend this book to almost anyone who enjoys mystery and wants an easy read.
