Lucy's mother is the U.S. Ambassador to Ethiopia. So Lucy's life must be one big adventure, right? Not really. Her parents are more focused on their careers than their family, so they live on different continents. And Lucy's worrywart mother keeps her locked up inside the ambassador's residence 'for her own good.' Lucy's had enough. So one day, she and a friend sneak off. When Lucy's kidnapped, things get decidedly more 'interesting.' Using her knowledge of African animals, inventiveness, will, and courage, Lucy embarks on an adventure beyond her wildest dreams. A gripping tale, loosely based on real life events, this page-turner by a debut novelist will have readers riveted from start to finish.
