Jimmy’s hamster is gone–without a trace. He didn’t latch the cage properly, and the beloved pet escaped. Overcome with guilt and sadness, the nine-year-old also has the sinking feeling that perhaps Mom was right when she said a pet would be too great a responsibility for him.
In a race against time and weather, Jimmy uses his vivid imagination and sound advice from the school nurse to try to lure the hamster back. His efforts help him cope, but will they work?
Perfect for reluctant readers, LOST is a contemporary story written in under 20,000 words. For ages 8 – 11.
