My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is a book for early teens. Amy, age 14, takes a babysitting job and she the child she is babysitting for are kidnapped. The kidnappers are pretty inept, but Amy uses her head to do what she can to get rescued. The kidnappers take videos to send to the family in order to show that the girls are alive. Amy attempts to give clues in the videos but the clues take a lot of interpreting. Amy has to manage to give clues as to where they are without the kidnappers knowing. She uses her head to plant bits of information, but will the detectives know what she means?
This is one of those books you would want a young teen, especially one who is babysitting, to read. Amy is responsible for 3 year old Kendra, and has to rely on herself to protect her. She keeps her head and stays alert to every opportunity to escape. She also manages to keep Kendra from being too afraid even when she herself doesn't know if they will be rescued.
