okay, it says here the book was published in 1995. i havent read it until now, so maybe i was like 17 years old late realize there is a book like this.

well, the story focused on a mom with three kids, beth, as she heading for her reunion in a hotel. she brought her three kids along with her, the oldest boy named vincent, the middle dude named ben, and the youngest of all.. i dont remember her name. beth life was going to turned upside down when she left a while to talk to her friends and leaving vincent in charge of keeping ben. but you see, vincent was a 5 years old kid, so he must have been bored his self out to just sit tight and watched her younger brother. he said to ben to get lost. and he did. he never came back, never came home, making vincent blaming himself for his disappearing, making vincent stepped into the role of a mother for her little sister while beth was in a depression.
but 12 years later when the family have pulled together and have a new life, came this boy living two blocks away from their house and willing to do a lawn mower for them. from the moment on beth has a hunched that the boy might be her long lost son.

the story is kind of promising actually, despite the fact that it was coincident that made ben united with his family again. but there is something about this story, about how valuable the means of family is, about how hard beth trying to safe her family when it started to slip out of her hands, about how deep a mother's love she even willing to take you to a stranger house you called dad at night when the real dad and the real mom is someone you might call a kidnapper. i aint gonna talk no more, you shank should read it or see the movie. goodreads and goodwatch buds! (i watched the film anyway, but i dont know if there is any difference between the book and the movie)
