Description

As far as Zane knows, today is just another boring day at his boring gas-station job. Until he gets carjacked by a masked gunman. Zane has no idea where they're going or what will happen when they get there. All he knows is that the lunatic in the passenger seat has a gun aimed at him. Zane tries to reason with the guy, and when that fails, he tries a couple of daring stunts to get free, but they backfire. They've been on the road for a long time before Zane's fear starts to ease just a little, enough for his curiosity to take over. His captor has had several opportunities to hurt him or punish him for trying to get away, but he hasn't. Zane starts to wonder who this guy is. And what he really wants.

Editorial Reviews

"This novel has a great storyline and it immediately jumps into the action, hooking the reader. There is hardly any wait time for the thrills to begin; Zane is carjacked within a few pages of the novel, and the intensity of the carjacking will have the reader rapidly turning the pages."

— Bookvacations.wordpress.com

"Fast-paced and action-packed, truly a book to appeal to a reluctant reader...Mac packs this short novel with enough twists and turns to keep a reader interested and doesn't waste time with superfluous descriptions."

— Resource Links

"Recommended where hi/lo books are needed with strong male leads."

— Tri State Young Adult Book Review Committee

"Jacked will have instant appeal for reluctant readers. It gets right into the action and keeps things pumped up right to the end. Written in a high interest/low level style makes it a great motivator for further reading."

— Readingjunky's Reading Roost blog
