Frances Lincoln, 2011. ISBN 9871847801210.
(Ages 13+) When 15 year old Maya was younger Pam Brown saved her life. That was the last time she saw her family, after that Pam adopted her. Now it's Maya's turn to save Pam's life when she is kidnapped by terrorists. All of Pam's hopes lie in that Maya is smart enough to use the password she gave her to open the 'Red Moon' file on her laptop and that she understands the message she gave her in that one phone call: 'Look for the moon'.
In an attempt to find her mum Maya leaves the safe home of Pam's mum and goes to the Red Moon bookshop in Leeds to talk to Pam's informant, Khaled.
But he a friend or is he her enemy? Can she infiltrate their cell without risking Pam's life? And will she get there before it's too late?
This book was hard to get in to and a little boring at first but it was a good book after that.
