Ransom

ebook

Edgar Award finalist: When the strange new bus driver passes the last stop, the five teens on board know something's wrong: "[A] gripping thriller." —Publishers Weekly


Valley Gardens is the last stop on the bus route after school. The neighborhood is known for its wealthy families, perhaps the richest in town. Marianne, Bruce, Glenn, Dexter, and Jesse live in Valley Gardens, and have no trouble guiding the new bus driver to the last stop of the day—but the strange substitute driver keeps driving. Soon the five teenagers are hostages deep in the mountains. Their kidnappers demand stacks of money from their families, even though most of the students aren't as well off as the abductors assume. Without hope of raising the ransom money, the five teens must find a way out or face terrifying consequences.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Lois Duncan including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection.
