Amy learned a lot in her babysitting course, but not what to do if two thugs show up, intent on kidnapping. Armed with misinformation and a weapon, the men take Amy and little Kendra to a remote cabin in the woods. There they make videos of the girls and mail them to Kendra’s wealthy parents in an effort to get ransom money. After several of her escape attempts fail, Amy is forced to make one last, desperate move. Award winner Peg Kehret crafts a suspenseful thriller with a spunky heroine who uses her wits to save herself and the toddler.

Stolen Children by Peg Kehret is one of my new favorite books. Top 5 maybe. The story is realistic fiction. In the story the main character, Amy, is babysitting for the Edgerton's. The Edgerton’s are very orderly. On Amy’s first day of work after she sets Kendra to sleep, she accidentally falls asleep by the pool. While she is sleeping, two guys with a gun show up and kidnap Kendra. Amy wakes up in time to find Kendra in the back of the car. Amy then runs in the house to call the police. One of the guys points a gun at Amy, then kidnaps her too. I wonder why Amy doesn’t signal anything to the people they pass on the freeway. I really liked the part where Amy and Kendra “ran away”. I think that Amy shouldn’t have stayed where she was when she heard the car. She should have grabbed Kendra and ran. Then, when she knew for sure that they were being chased she should camoflage themselves. I have Also read Abandoned also by Peg Kehret. It was also a very good book my brother tried to steal both of the books. (He only succeeded in stealing one). I think that it is a book most people should read. I typically HATE mysteries. I picked up that one and couldn’t put it down. It was so suspenseful. Go Peg Kehret!
