But why would Matt go anywhere with a stranger? Overwhelmed with fear, Bonnie discovers that her dog is gone, too. Was Pookie used as a lure for Matt? Bonnie makes one big mistake in her attempt to find her brother. In a chilling climax on a Washington State ferry, Bonnie and Matt must outsmart their abductor or pay with their lives.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Tough issues such as divorce, nightmares, domestic violence, safety, and awareness are well balanced and provide material for thoughtful discussion.”

    VOYA

  • “Has enough suspense to keep children interested, and it will also appeal to reluctant readers.”

    School Library Journal

  • “This quick read, which accurately reflects that most missing children are either abducted by relatives or run away, effectively builds suspense as the police make progress and Matt grows increasingly afraid of his gun-toting father.”

    Booklist

  • “Highly suspenseful… Kehret…always demonstrates a deft touch in maintaining suspense while keeping her narrative light enough for the age of her intended audience. It’s entertaining and enlightening for older children as well as some reluctant adolescent readers.”

    Kirkus Reviews

    " Matt's father wanted custody of him so he went to his school and took him without the mother knowing. Matt didnt know it was his father and was lured with him because of his dog. He tries to make a relationship with his son and does not want him to go back with his mother. It was easy for a child to keep up with without being confused. "

    " although many times you can see exactly where the plot is going, this is still a good read. the point-of-view frequently shifts perspective keeping the plot interesting. Bonnie is a great, smart girl protagonist. some of the most interesting messages in the book are to take kids seriously (many people in the book ignore the kids' pleas for help) and to know how to be safe. perfect for middle schoolers. "
