MEDIA REVIEWS
"Gripping... Their story remains extraordinarily compelling. An incredible tale told with intensity."

"-- Kirkus" (starred review)


"An astonishing read. What unfolds from the terrifying drama of Micah Garen's kidnapping by Iraqi militants is a complete surprise: a moving, sympathetic portrait of Iraq and its people struggling against the chaos unleashed by the American liberation.American Hostage explores some of the darkest terrain in the human condition and emerges with hope still beating."

--Evan Wright, author of "Generation Kill"


"In this chilling tale of Micah Garen's captivity and his loved ones' fight for his release lies a simple but eternal truth: love can--and will--push through all that hate just as surely as blades of grass through a sidewalk."

--Deborah Copaken Kogan, author of "Shutterbabe"
