Taken by Edward Bloor

Taken Book Critique Taken is the book I read, published in 2007 with a lexile level of 690. Taken is about the main character, Charity Meyers, being kidnapped. When she woke up she was inside an ambulance restrained inside of a stretcher. Kidnapping becomes a major increase in America in 2035.

Charity Meyers lives in a huge house with security guards and surveillance cameras everywhere in her house.

Almost every character in Taken has a choice to make; they must all decide, "Does the end justify the means?" Ask students to select a character and chart the character’s decisions. Ask them to determine if the character’s motives justify his or her actions.

George and Kate are promised the finest education when they transfer to the Whittaker Magnet School. It boasts the highest test scores in the nation. But at what price? Their school's curriculum is focused on beating standardized tests; classes are held in dreary, windowless rooms; and students are force-fed noxious protein shakes to improve their test performance. Worst of all, there seems to be a demon loose in the building, one whose murderous work has only just begun. A bitterly funny satire about the state of modern education from the author of Tangerine and Crusader. Martin Conway comes from a family filled with heroes and disgraces. His grandfather was a statesman who worked at the US Embassy in London during WWII. His father is an alcoholic who left his family. His sister is an overachieving Ivy League graduate. And Martin? Martin is stuck in between-floundering.

BY 2035 THE RICH have gotten richer, the poor have gotten poorer, and kidnapping has become a major growth industry in the United States. The children of privilege live in secure, gated communities and are escorted to and from school by armed guards.But the security around Charity Meyers has broken down. On New Year's morning, she wakes and finds herself alone, strapped to a stretcher, in an ambulance that's not moving. She is amazingly calm - kids in her neighborhood have been well trained in kidnapping protocol. If this were a normal kidnapping, Charity would be fine. But as the hours of her imprisonment tick by, Charity realizes there is nothing normal about what's going on here. No training could prepare her for what her kidnappers really want . . . and worse, for who they turn out to be.

The idea of the book is quite interesting. In a futuristic world where the gaps between "poor" and "rich" are wider than ever (doesn't seem so futuristic when you think about it) a new business is flourishing - kidnapping children. This business is so established that the rich kids are well trained on how to behave in these circumstances... The book starts with the heroine being "taken" and uses flashbacks to her past to explain the situation.
The book is interesting and easy to read. I enjoyed it, but my criticism is about the ending which is too sweet / too good to be true.
Ok. Before I even begin if your thinking about getting this book for any kid in a grade lower then ninth... don't. They won't understand, and if they do they might become frightened.
Now. This book confused me at times and still does.. I wish it ended differently then it had.. and I just. I don't know. It was alright.
But if you were a fan of hunger games and divergent or TFIOS.. don't pick up this book. You will feel like you down graded... ALOT.
This book received wonderful reviews when it came out, and I like the author's "Tangerine" a lot, so I thought this story would be equally insightful, with equally sympathetic characters. Not so. The characters aren't really sympathetic, the setting (the future) isn't really depicted in believable detail, and the plot is weak.
Tangerine was much better

I’msa bored and I need at least twenty words to submit this review for a prize which I get now

Slow at first but midway through very fun and thrilling! Great twist at the end and a nice wrap up.
