2014 book 26

Adina Rishe Gewirtz's Zebra Forest
So it's like 1980, and a girl who's been following the Iran Hostage Crisis ends up a hostage herself when the father she believed to be dead escapes from prison. Pretty solid story about family--I thought the relationship between the protagonist and her brother was especially well-done--and a pretty solid read in general. I mean, it's a middle grade book. But a very readable one. B+.
