About This Book
Amy learned a lot in her baby-sitting course — but not what to do if kidnappers show up! Armed with a weapon, two men take Amy and her three-year-old charge, Kendra, to a remote cabin in the woods. They make videos of the girls and mail them to Kendra's wealthy parents in an effort to get ransom money. After several failed escape attempts, Amy is forced to make one last, desperate move. Will her plan work?
The author of many popular books for young readers, award winner Peg Kehret crafts a suspenseful thriller with a spunky heroine who uses her wits to save herself and her young charge.
Some mature content; more suitable for older readers.
