One thought on “Outlaw

  1. Nancy Reinking

    This book is a great read for the YAL crowd International intrigue, Indiana Jones style, written to enlighten others to the plight of those who live in corrupt political systems Heroes and villains clash using the latest technology There is some violence in this story, but it is important to the plot development and provides a realistic viewpoint to life in the real world.

    A modern day Robin Hood with technology Set in Burkino Fasa, this fast paced story tells of corruption in the country Two teenagers of the British Ambassador soon become involved but who can they trust I like the descriptions of Africa from the author who lives in the area.

    4.5 stars I suspect my younger two boys, who both read it around age 11, would give it at least 5.This is a great adventure story for middle grades and teens It tells the story of Jake and his sister Kirsty aka Kas , children of the British ambassador, who get kidnapped in a plot to undermine Yakuuba Sor As they travel back to the capital, they struggle to determine who are the good guys , the bad guys , and those worthy of trust The author works in development in Burkina Faso and portrays the p [...]

  17. Kathy

    Once you get past the terrible, and terribly deceptive cover, and the alternating voice narrative setup, this book really picks up When the story lines of Jake and the outlaw come together the story changes into something than each alone could tell I wish Kirsty, or Kas as she is called, Jake s sister, had of a part than whining about the injustice She would have been the likely character to embark on an adventure based on her being upset about the privileges the family indulged in being Brit [...]

  18. Avi K

    Outlaw by Stephen Davies is a very interesting book that would be great for anyone who is into adventure and suspence There is a lot of action in this book and the author really knows how to get your attention from the first page Outlaw is about a boy who goes to boarding school and get suspended and returns back to his family He then gets kidnapped at a hotel and has to go along with the kidnapper until rescued This book is definetly a thriller and has a little humor here and there It s filled [...]

    When I read this for Clash of theTitles, I didn t expect to enjoy it At first, I didn t like Jake s sister, and felt like Jake was ignorant, but over time, I grew fond of him His ability to climb jump over walls I found unique The kidnapping was kind of low key, and I don t think that it WAS really Stockholm Syndrome affecting them otherwise I wouldn t have read it Yakkuba Sor reminded me of Robin Hood, stealing from the rich and giving to the poor In fact, him using a slingshot also made me thi [...]

  20. Sarah Rosenberger

    When the children of the British Ambassador to Burkina Faso are kidnapped, an African Robin Hood type character called the Chameleon is falsely accused and has to try to get them safely home in order to clear his name.There s no character development, just action, action, and techno talk but the mentions of injustices like the practices of European mining companies might make readers interested in learning Guys who like Anthony Horowitz or Andrew Klavan might like it.

  21. Jessi

    Jake isn t too upset when he gets suspended from his English boarding school It mostly means he gets to spend some extra time with his family in Africa, where his father is an ambassador and have some adventures in the sun The adventure part of that becomes all too real when his second night home, he and his sister are kidnapped by the notorious outlaw, Yakuuba Sor Jake and Kas are both strong and brave and Jake is able to use his parkour skills to help aid in their escape.Good for teens and twe [...]

  22. Mary

    This was a fast paced thriller that would appeal to adventure lovers After Jake and his sister, Kas, are kidnapped in Burkina Faso they meet a teenage outlaw Yakuuba Sor Yakuuba Sor has a reputation among authorities as a terrorist, but among those he helps, he s of a Robin Hood character The story has elements of the James Bond and Indiana Jones franchises This will be a go to book for readers looking for adventure stories or thrillers, for young precocious readers who have exhausted the tween [...]

  23. Mrs. Schatz

    Excellent adventure reminiscent of James Bond Indiana Jones Robin Hood Set in Burkina Faso in Africa which makes it set out Jake matured in to a fine young man The cover is misleading I kept wondering how skateboarding fit into kidnapping and the rescue throughout most of the book Turns out that the young man on the cover is scaling a very tall wall just like Jake in the book I believe the cover needs to be different because I would not have read this title based on the cover, which I do I was c [...]

  24. I used to read but now I don't It's bad I know

    This was a clean, exciting, and realistic read I don t have anything bad to say about it sure, you have your stereotypical main character, but compared to all the feminist junk out there these days I appreciated having your typical hero guy, actually The different languages and cultures and proverbs expressed in the book were great, because with the author s background and end notes, the plot was believable I loved all the different stunts and was always guessing at what Sor was going to do next [...]

  25. Mary Ann

    This was a good adventure, full of information about Burkina Faso which I knew absolutely nothing about and the state of some of the African countries that deal with corrupt officials and groups who pirate and kidnap Jake and his sister Kirsty are the children of the American ambassador, and soon they are at the mercy of the most notorious outlaw in the country But things are not exactly as they seem in this dangerous turn of events Good plotting, lots of twists and turns, lots to learn I would [...]

    Jake, fifteen, sneaks out of his English boarding school to play a game he and his friends call geothimble When the game traps him in a prison exercise yard he is caught by the police, suspended from school, and sent back to live with ambassador dad, mom, and sister in Burkina Faso Jake and his sister are kidnapped by a political faction and the ensuing adventures are fast and furious Interesting characters and very useful info about how to use sour milk to charge a cell phone Adventure fans wil [...]

  27. Milena Lim

    This book was so vivid and thrilling that I felt like I was actually in the book riding a motorcycle with Jake and on a horse with Kas This book was about a teenage boy named Jake who is expelled from a boarding school and sent to Burkina Faso where his English ambassador parents and sister are living He expects a peaceful vacation but instead, he and his sister is kidnapped by a man and accomplice trying to get ransom money When they re saved by teenage boy, the three of them are still in troub [...]

  28. Esther

    Better thanHacking Timbuktu , in my opinion Still the tight, fast paced plotting, and I didn t notice any critical loose ends in the story telling The various teenagers all employ the tools commonly at their fingertips to get rid of the bad guys their kidnappers but because the characters come from the UK and Burkina Faso, the tools they have to work with are quite eclectic and suspense inducing Slingshots and cell phones all become clever in this tale that asks the question of what lengths we a [...]

  29. Karen Arendt

    An interesting adventure story This book is set in Burkina Faso, a small country in Africa At first, you think the outlaw is the Ambassador s son, Jake, but as the story progresses, you learn about another, traditional outlaw, Yakuuba Sor, who helps protect people in Burkina Faso from corrupt police and sheiks The book was originally published in Britain There is plenty of cultural content of AFrica, adventure, and clever ingenuity Sort of a MacGyver meets Africa if anyone still remembers MacGy [...]
