Publisher's 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.

great book, kind of short

I read this book when I was young and havent been able to get the story out of my head, after some googling I finally found it and was able to listen to it through Audible. Pretty good book but I would say it is definitely for young readers.

Loved it!

My kids and I decided to read this title, as it was a recommended read for their class. Sometimes the narrator's voice cracked and she speaks a but slow, but we thoroughly enjoyed it!
