Where is Meg Falconer?
Everybody wants to know. Her brother Aiden, who saw her kidnapped and is now trying to track her down, wants to know. The FBI, led by the very serious Agent Harris, wants to know. Her parents, who fear their pasts have something to do with why Meg was taken, want to know.
Even Meg's kidnappers want to know. Because even though they caught her once, that doesn't mean they can keep a hold of her. . . .
When Meg Falconer is kidnapped, she uses a trick from her father's detective novels to alert her family of her whereabouts. Older brother Aiden quickly links a news story about a string of clogged toilets at rural gas stations to Meg's disappearance. However, his fugitive parents, and the FBI agent assigned to protect them, dismiss Aiden's appeals to follow the trail. Frustrated, the boy borrows his best friend's identity and sets out to find his sister. Meanwhile, Meg constantly attempts to escape from her captors. Meg and Aiden are presented as bright, resourceful teens who take their destinies into their own hands in Gordon Korman's novel (Scholastic, 2006). Each sibling tells his or her side of the story. Christie Moreau reads Meg's part with a determined voice, emphasizing verbs such as "blasted" to underscore the action-driven nature of the story. Andrew Rannells effectively expresses Aiden's frustration and resolve with a firm, brisk tone. Both readers modulate their tone and pitch to introduce different characters into the narrative. None of the narration is over-dramatized, permitting the book's powerful narrative to speak for itself. A strong choice for public libraries where Korman's works are popular.-Mary Landrum, Lexington Public Library, KY

In the sequel to THE ABDUCTION, the Falconers and the FBI are still frantically searching for Meg. It has been a little over a week since she was kidnapped and Aiden is getting restless. He hasn't slept, he's barely eaten, and a new agent has just been assigned to the case. <BR/><BR/>After the FBI got very close to getting Meg back, the kidnappers decide to move her to a new location. The new location is nearly impossible to find. But Meg doesn't give up hope. She is still planning to escape. <BR/><BR/>When a mysterious incident happens, Aiden is sure that it's a sign that Meg was sending him. But Agent Sorenson thinks otherwise. So Aiden decides to take matters into his own hands and go search for Meg on his own. This results in many run-ins with the law. Find out exactly what kind by reading this excellent book. <BR/><BR/>THE SEARCH, like the first book in the KIDNAPPED series, was an incredible thriller! Gordon Korman really knows how to write a story that will keep you guessing every time. I recommend this book to anyone who likes adventures. I think this book deserves five stars because it is action-packed and full of realistic details. It's almost like you are there!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
