Rich kid, broken family and a trip to fix it all up!
So many teenagers have a sense of abandonment- getting ditched, everybody elses issues in life matter more then theirs do.
Amy's mum dies, her relationship with her Dad and step mum are in tatters and she responds as abandoned people do- she fights.
But this story is also about pirates and we hear that maybe that are not as villainous as we think, and they to have been hurt and abandoned. This story is about how hurting people combine on a boat and all fight for their survival, physical and emotional.
As Amy sets out to sea with her family on a yacht, she's only thinking about the peaceful waters and the warm sun. But she doesn't get either after a group of pirates seize the boat and its human cargo, and the family becomes a commodity in a highly sophisticated transaction. Hostage One is Amy's father--the most valuable. Hostage Three is Amy, who can't believe the nightmare she's in. But something even stranger happens as she builds a bond with one of her captors, making it brutally clear that the price of life and its value are two very different things
