Publisher's Description

Charlie West just woke up in someone else's nightmare.

He's strapped to a chair. He's covered in blood and bruises. He hurts all over. And a strange voice outside the door just ordered his death.

The last thing he can remember, he was a normal high-school kid doing normal things--working on his homework, practicing karate, daydreaming of becoming an air force pilot, writing a pretty girl's number on his hand. How long ago was that? Where is he now? Who is he really?

And more to the point . . . how is he going to get out of this room alive?

Review

A thriller that reads like a teenage version of 24.

Bestselling thriller-author Andrew Klavan has tried his hand at young-adult fiction for the first time, and the result is an adrenaline-pumping adventure. The book features teen karate enthusiast Charlie West. Charlie's hobby and his unshakable morals come in handy after he wakes up, bruised, bloody, and strapped to a chair next to a tray of torture instruments. He has no idea where he's held or why—the last thing he remembers is a regular day of high school. After using his martial-arts skills to escape, West sets out to unravel what's happened to him, and maybe uncover an attempted assassination of a government official along the way.-The Daily Beast

Publisher's Weekly

The first young adult novel from Edgar-winner Klavan, which kicks off the Homelanders series, offers fast-paced action sequences, but disappoints with a weak plot. Charlie West is a good student, a black belt at karate and has finally asked out his dream girl. One night, he goes to sleep and wakes up to find himself one year in the future at a secret compound, with no memory of what's happened to him. He manages to escape, and as he evades his former captors. he discovers that he's also a fugitive from the law and has somehow been drawn into an Islamist terrorist conspiracy. Details of the last day Charlie remembers are slowly filled in over the course of his escape, but the most intriguing parts of the novel are the present-day action sequences; although Charlie often gets lucky, he's also very capable of recognizing that luck and taking advantage of opportunities when they arise. Unfortunately, he's never really given any room to grow in his personal beliefs or character, with his certainty that he's always correct consistently getting reinforced throughout. Ages 14–up.
