Captured is the story of a twelve year old girl named Elita living in Maine during the time of settlement. She'd rather have adventures, like those she sees her brothers having, instead of taking care of her younger siblings and helping her mother. Little does she know she is about to get her wish. It is an adventure far more exciting than anything she had in mind. Her father was an Indian agent, helping them resolve issues with the white man. For his efforts the Indians call him brother. When he dies, they honor him by teaching his daughter Indian ways and how to be a dutiful daughter. She is captured by the Trickster of the tribe and taken to the Indian village. Chief Kwaniwibid gives her three tasks to complete that bring her many understandings.

Captured is based on a true story and takes place in Georgetown, Maine during settlement times. It is a coming of age story of a young girl. Through her adventures in completing the three tasks given to her by the Abenaki chief, Elita learns of strengths she didn't know she had and that girls are just as capable as boys. She also learns to be careful what she wishes for but in the future. I call it my girl power book.
