Six-year-old Matt leaves his classroom to use the bathroom and disappears, kidnapped by Denny, the father he has never met. Matt's mother and sister Bonnie move heaven and Earth to look for him, but it's only by chance that Bonnie spots Matt at a baseball game. However, Denny manages to capture Bonnie, as well, and the two siblings must figure out a way to escape together. Narrator Pamela Lorence's performance is honest and unburdened despite the seriousness of the events in this story, and her wide-eyed depiction of Bonnie and Matt fully evokes their innocence and determination.
Matt is missing. Bonnie's brother left his classroom to use thebathroom - and disappeared. A police dog traces his scent to the curb, where he apparently got into a vehicle. 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.

I loved this book with all of it's suspense. What a great book for young people! It kept me wanting to read (listen) more and more. I can't wait for my granddaughters to read it!
I have read almost, if not all, of Peg Kehret's books, and this one is definatly a must-read for all young suspense lovers! The entire book keeps you on your toes, and it's got an awesome ending. The reader does an excellent job as well... I recommend it!
I wanted to sit and listen to this book from beginning to end, so I did. It's a bonus that it is not too long, and you could finish it during a long car ride or plane trip.
