    Read Never Wave Goodbye now....BEFORE summer camp season begins!!!

    This is a great book for summer reading!!!

    It takes place at the beginning of summer, as four families are preparing to send their kids off to sleep-away camp, and four kids are preparing for their first sleep-away adventure. Never could any of them imagine, however, the terrifying events which will follow!

    You'll find yourself going through a whole range of emotions as you read this wonderful first novel. You'll be terrified for the kids, and then you'll cheer them on as they solve one problem after another. You'll empathize with the agony of the parents as you try to figure out just exactly who is responsible for what. The one thing you won't be able to do is to put it down until you've finished it! A perfect summer read!!

    Family Camp

    Never Wave Goodbye is an excellent read although somewhat predictable. The pleasure is in the characters and their emotions- well drawn by the author. I kept to every page, resisting the urge to skip to the end to see whodunit.
    It may make some parents skittish to read of the trauma other parents go through, but I recommend making the effort. Just one question for the author-Why did the Walker father say that he should have thought of that before?

    high octane suspense family drama

    Feeling sad but proud that her nine years old daughter Sarah is going to spend two weeks at sleep away camp with her best friend Linda, the distraught mom pays little attention to the vehicle or driver picking up her child. Lena waves goodbye to Sarah and goes inside their home pondering how to get her marriage to David back on track. Soon a second van arrives to pick up Sarah.

    By the time the confusion is cleared up, Sarah, Linda and two boys Tommy and Franklin are the victims of a kidnapping. The FBI leads the investigation, but has little to go on. The kidnappers demand one million.

    In the woods, one abductor Mr. Everett is with the four frightened kids until he has an accident after a chance encounter with a hiker. The kids are alone struggling to survive. Sarah becomes the de facto leaders of the quartet

    Never Wave Goodbye is a high octane suspense wrapped around several related (by the abductions) family dramas. Doug Magee gets inside the hearts and souls of the children and their parents; each sharing in common a fear they will not see one another ever again. Although the clues are obvious so that law enforcement seems inane and to a degree the parents (one can claim trepidation and grief for the latter), readers will relish this gut-wrenching human drama.
