Summary

Summary

Amy learned a lot in her babysitting course—but not what to do if two thugs show up, intent on kidnapping.

When Amy agreed to babysit little Kendra Edgerton, she had no idea she was stepping into a kidnapping plot. Armed with misinformation and a weapon, the two men force the girls out of the house and take them 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, sending clues to the police through the videos. But time is working against her.

In Stolen Children, award-winner Peg Kehret crafts a suspenseful thriller with a spunky, resourceful heroine.
