Moss, Miriam

Girl on a Plane

(3) YA Fifteen-year-old Anna is heading back to boarding school in England in 1970 when her plane from Bahrain is hijacked by Palestinian militants. This fast-paced, historically contextualized, and gripping story includes the right mix of foreshadowing, anticipation, and relief as Anna's four-day ordeal unfolds. A postscript and Q&A discuss the author's own hijacked-plane experience as a teenager, upon which the story is based.
