Girl on a Plane - Miriam Moss

Staff Pick

In September 1970, 15-year-old Anna boards what she expects will be just another flight taking her away from her military family, currently stationed in Bahrain, and towards her British boarding school. It turns out, however, that she couldn’t be more wrong: terrorists belonging to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine hijack her plane and divert it to the Jordanian desert. They hold all of the passengers and crew hostage for four seemingly interminable days, during which food and water slowly dwindle as a terrible uncertainty looms over the captives’ heads. Miriam Moss’s own experience as a Girl on a Plane (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $17.99) hijacked by the PFLP imbues this heart-stopping novel with heightened realism and depth. Ages 14-18.
