Captives

Tom Pow

Roaring Brook Press

Martin and his family are enjoying a sun-filled vacation on a beautiful Caribbean island--until they are stopped at gunpoint, blindfolded, and bundled into a truck that heads for the dense forest of the island's interior. Pushed to their physical and emotional limits as they are forced deeper into the wild terrain, the hostages come to understand something of the harsh political backdrop of life on sunny Santa Clara, and the events that have shaped the lives of their captors and fueled their actions.
