Bchavez56 | 2 comments I read the book in 2007-2008. I believe it was towards young adults maybe even teens (I read it in my senior English class) it's about a boy who I believe parent are sperated. He's really into baseball cards. There's some cards he really wants and his mom promises to take him to the mall to buy them. He becomes impatient waiting for his mom to take him so he goes to the mall by himself. He meets a strange man who is friendly to him and also appears to have an interest in baseball cards. The man convinces the little boy to go with him and he kidnaps the little boy. The man takes the little boy back to his apartment or maybe a hotel I don't remember. That's all I can remember about the book. Oh I believe the little boy has a brother but I'm not positive. Please if you know any books that's sound familiar, let me know.
