Stolen Children - Peg Kehret

When Amy agreed to babysit, she had no idea she was stepping into a kidnapping plot. Two men force the girls into a cabin, where they create DVDs to send to the families in hopes of a large ransom.

Kids love Peg Kehret books as much as I love BLTs during the summertime. They always freak me out a little bit, I mean, look at the title: stolen children. I don't like it. I don't like thinking about stolen children. Of course, Ms. Kehret deals with it in an appropriate 4th-6th grade way, but still. Check out a blog post written by the author herself on where she got the idea for this feel good, happy sounding book. (I'm being sarcastic.)

Yes? No? Maybe? First on your To-Read list? Last? In the middle somewhere?

Can we get a discussion going between Coralville Central and Lemme students? Leave a comment!
This book is flying off the shelves at Lemme! What is it about 6th grade girls that love to be scared to death?!?!?
The main character is so brave to remain level headed through her experience- I would have been crying in the corner.

I was one of those sixth grade girls, too! I loved scary books. Now, well now, they really DO scare me...to the point where I can't sleep! What did you think of the book? Scary?
