Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wasn't bad, wasn't great... Was ok The Kidnapping Of Christina Lattimore By Joan Lowery Nixon was so-so for me.I read it awhile back but I still remembered that I was disappointed. I was really excited to read it because I thought it would be intense and action pack but I didn't get much of that. On the back on the book it says that "she struggles to stay alive" when her kidnapper feeds her and gives her water, and books to read. And then when her family pays the kidnappers ransom she thinks it's all behind her but then finds out that her own family thinks she orchestrated her own kidnapping to get the money for a summer-in-france program that she wanted to go to but wasn't aloud to. This book was still good thought. I just wanted something more to make it really exciting. But thats just my opinion.
