Hostage Publisher's Summary

In a dangerous world, everyone needs protection.

Hostage is the first installment from the Bodyguard series by Chris Bradford, best-selling author of Young Samurai. Bodyguard is a bulletproof action-adventure series that fans of Cherub and Alex Rider will love. This is Lee Child for younger readers--Jason Bourne for the next generation.

With the rise of teen stars, the intense media focus on celeb families, and a new wave of billionaires, adults are no longer the only targets for hostage taking, blackmail and assassination--kids are too.

That's why they need a young bodyguard like Connor Reeves to protect them. Recruited into the ranks of a covert young bodyguard squad, 14-year-old Connor Reeves embarks on a rigorous close protection course. Training in surveillance, anti-ambush exercises, hostage survival and unarmed combat, he's put through his paces and wonders if he will actually survive the course.

But when the US president summons Connor to protect his impulsive teenage daughter, Connor's training is put to the ultimate test. For Connor discovers that the first daughter, Alicia, doesn't want to be guarded. She just wants to have fun. And with no clue Connor is her bodyguard, Alicia tries to elude her Secret Service agents and lead Connor astray. But unknown to her, a terrorist sleeper cell has been activated.

Its mission: to take the president's daughter hostage.
