Read in July, 2011

The premise of this book should hook kids right from the start: When one girl is accidentally abducted when her mother's car is stolen, the daughter of the car thief, a child the same age, quietly helps her by bringing her food while she's hiding in the family's garage. Years later, those same girls meet at summer camp, recognize one another, and come face to face (literally) with the past that connects them.

Written in verse, with two unique voices and an unusual format twist, this is a quick read that's emotional, compelling, and beautifully crafted. The white space of the format and high-interest hook make it a great choice for reluctant readers and avid readers alike. Highly recommended.
