Such a Suspenseful Read!

This book is the first in a series of three (it ends with a cliffhanger, so order the next two, The Search, and Rescue with this one!) It is set after Gordon Korman's On The Run series, which I would recommend reading before Kidnapped. There aren't really any spoilers, but I prefer to read books in order. The whole Kidnapped series will keep you on the edge of your seat! It is well-written and full of action and suspense. Each book is pretty short, so don't expect a thick novel. I have read this book twice, and I loved it every time! (If you like this series, you should look at some of Gordon Korman's other books: the Island Trilogy, Everest Trilogy, Dive Trilogy, Masterminds Trilogy, Operation Do-Over, and On The Run)

Picture this--you and your sibling are walking home from school and all of a sudden, someone is attacking you and trying to kidnap you. Then instead of taking both of you they just take your younger sibling. Well, this happened to ex-fugitive Aiden Falconer. The FBI accused his parents of doing something illegal so they went to jail for almost a year while Aiden and Meg were running away from the police so they wouldn't have to go into a temporary home. Then the FBI figured out they falsely accused the Falconers. When they got out of jail there were a lot of people who still believed they had done something wrong. Aiden and Meg called them Falconer-haters. One day after school they were coming home from the bus and this van drives by slowly. They think nothing of it, but then it stops and two people come out and start attacking them. They can't get Aiden, so they take Meg and drive off. After Aiden tries to chase after the van and can't catch it, he runs home and tells his parents. They call the local police. Then the FBI gets involved, so they call in special agent Emanuel Harris--the same agent who had arrested the Falconer parents in the first place. They tell the media. They hope they can find her soon! THE ABDUCTION is great! It is the beginning of a three book series, KIDNAPPED. Gordon Korman really knows how to write a suspenseful book and make you want to read more and more. There are so many twists and turns, this book is sure to keep you on edge! Reviewed by: Frizzie

READ ME!!!!!

Kidnapped by: Gordon korman Aiden struggles to fine his long lost sister. Who has gotten kidnapped by three people. A man, a young man, and a women. The only thing that will save megs life is her brother and a bag of two million dollars. Once Aiden has the two million dollars, the kidnappers go wild with the situation. Aiden almost gets a concussion. Now the kidnappers are furious. Now they are in the middle of no where with meg in the trunk. The book was really exciting. Because it seemed if I was actually there. This book was really amazing to me. The main conflict was really fascinating. At the end of the book it was kind of disappointing because the book wasn't really finish. It had another book to it. And I hope I can read it soon. The main conflict interested me because it was like the news u see like a kidnapped child and you want to see what had happened to them, and want to try to help them. The author that wrote this story is really good. He really knows what do write in a story to get the readers attention. I know that because it worked on me. He makes the characters so real. The authors vocabulary is really good for who ever reads this book. If you are 11 the words that he puts in here are really understandable. My rating to this book would be a 5. My reason for this number is because it is amazing when you first read the book. To tell you the truth my opinion is that this book shows you what happens sometimes. Like the kidnappers just kidnap there kids to get money. Well I hope you read this book. It is really fascinating and it really amazes you. Once you get into it you can stop reading it.

Great Begining

this book starts off with mystery and suspicion, and it ends with mystery and suspicion, setting the stage for the second book (Kidnapped: the search). Some background information before i tell you how much i loved this book: "Kidnapped: The Abduction" starts off giving the reader a few insights on the past of the falconer family: parents john and louise, and 15 year old Aiden and 11 year old meg. the parents were in jail because they helped out terrorists without knowing it, and meg and aiden had escaped from juvenille and had been on the run for a while. now that the police have realized that the family was innocent, they give the falconers their lives back. but that doesn't stop people from hating them... suddenly, on their way home from school, aiden witnesses meg getting kidnaped, and that leads to many attempts to try and get meg back. the story is from both meg's and aiden's view, so you know both sides of the story and it's easier to follow along. i can't tell you exactly how the story ends, but you're definitely left hanging and wanting more. so i reccommend buying both this book and Kidnapped: The Search (it's sequel) because once you're done with this book, you're going to want to keep going. that's what i did anyway.

Awesome start to the new kidnapped series!

Needless to say the book was perfect. Those who enjoyed On the Run series must read this! Aiden and Meg walk home from school until Meg gets kidnapped and that doesn't stop Aiden from rescing her. Meanwhile Agent Harris is on the case and the family think Meg's beeen kidnapped because since theres so many people that still think the family are TRATIORS. Meg however is held for ransume for 2 million dollars and if they don't give the money in time.... Meg's life could be at risk. It was aworth read so go buy or borrow it!

Kidnaped Reveiw

I think this is an exellent 100,000,000 star book!!! This is the book for you if you like mystery and action. It is a quick but enjoyable. But don't be alarmed this book is not near scary, just the title. I'd lay down in bed each night currled up and then read it for hours. This book is definitely the cats meow. I hope you really really enjoy it because I sure did a lot.
