IN A FOREIGN LAND
: Houghton Mifflin, 1984.
American kids accompany their parents to a peace conference in Italy. What
starts out as a routine bus trip to the catacombs turns into a scary kidnapping
and introduction to desert culture. The children are held hostage after
an uncomfortable two day boat trip across the Mediterranean. It's hard
to think about the black and white nature of right and wrong when you read
this story. If the captives have so much in common with the captors, why
are they enemies?
Terrorism -- Fiction.
Antinuclear movement -- Fiction.
