Abduction by Peg Kehret

This is an incredibly suspenseful story of the abduction of a young boy by a father he has never met before. I would only recommend this book for older readers, because I found it pretty scary. Even though Matt remembers the rules about strangers, the man in the UPS uniform lures him away by first stealing Matt's dog from his house, and telling him that the dog is hurt and needs his help. Later, Matt's sister Bonnie tries to rescue Matt and she gets kidnapped, too. The adults they turn to for help don't believe them, and it is finally up to the children to help themselves. A very believable story with a happy ending. Review by Stacy Church
