The Lovereading4Kids comment
A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection.
Action packed, fast paced and peppered with up to date technology, this is a gripping thriller which raises interesting undercurrents of social conscience. Jake’s love of adventure mean that rules have never held him down. Expelled from school for breaking into a prison, Jake joins his parents in Africa and is almost immediately kidnapped. When Jake discovers he is being held by the most notorious outlaw of the desert, he knows that he’ll need every once of bravery and intelligence to escape. Or will he? Trickery abounds and Jake learns that not everything he had been told about his captor is true. A strong desert setting and a corkscrew of a plot make this a terrific page-turner.
The Outlaw by Stephen Davies
Fifteen-year-old Jake Knight is an explorer and adventurer at heart but this often gets him into trouble. When a stuffy English boarding school suspends him for rule-breaking, Jake flies out to Burkina Faso where his parents are living. He is expecting a long, adventure-filled vacation under a smiling African sun. But what awaits him there is kidnapping, terrorism and Yakuuba Sor - the most wanted outlaw in the Sahara desert.
