Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-- Fans of the Hardy Boys are sure to find Patneaude's first novel even better. Chris and his best friend, Pat, have a couple of weeks of summer vacation in which to defy disbelieving parents and fly from Wisconsin to Florida on a special mission: to rescue Chris's three-year-old sister, presumed drowned, from kidnappers. While there is some evidence that Molly is dead and that the clues Chris gleans from a video are only wishful thinking, Patneaude quickly has readers as hopeful as Chris that she is alive. Middle schoolers will love it--and hopefully not get the idea to withdraw their savings accounts and head for who knows what part of the world. Questioning 13-year-olds doesn't seem to be part of the travel agent's or hotel clerk's agendas. Light considering the potentially tragic subject matter, lightly sexist, and capably written, the novel doesn't hit readers with guilt like, say, Marion Bauer's On My Honor Clarion, 1986, but touches on personal tragedy, fear, counseling, hope, and spirit in a contemporary buddy/action story.-- John Sigwald, Unger Memorial Library, Plainview, TX

    I felt like this book was waayyy to easy to see what was going to happen next. I felt little excitment out of this book. It's very dull and I fell asleep reading it, could have been much better.

    AWESOME!

    This book was really good. It's about a family that's at their cottage when their sister, and daughter turns up missing. The brother doesn't think that she drowns as everybody else does...What do you think? It was very suspensful! I read this when I was younger and came back to it I liked it so much.

    Great

    I could never put this book down. It was a kind of book that you couldn't wait to see what is going to happen. I think you should read this even if you don't think you will like it, I bet you will. I liked the details in the book. There was nothing that I didn't like about this book. I recommend this book to someone that likes to read and won't judge a book by it's cover! Have Fun!!!!

    Favorite Book

    This is by far the best book I have ever read. It is a low reading level, but everyone can learn something from it. It is a story about how far one boy will go to save his younger sister. I strongly recommend you read this book.

    Wow. Talk about suspenseful.

    The fact that this book is way under my reading level does not in any way change how much I enjoyed reading it. The book was recommended to me by a friend, and I loved it just as much as he did! Please, read this book! You will love it too!

    Ehh...

    This book was ok, but no prize. I read it in about an hour to keep my mind occupied, but I wouldn't suggest that anybody buy it...Patneaude did not explain the plot well.

    The Greatest Book ever!

    I think that this book is the Greatest! This book really inspired me because, once I read it I couldn't put it down! When I left my old school, I was on the last chapter and I didn't finish. When I left I almost started crying because, it was such a great book!
