    11. Wow. This was an excellent book on the overlooked topic of family abduction. It is age appropriate (8 to 12 would probably be good) but realistic. It clearly shows the devastating consequences family abduction has on children. The two children in the story, Elsie and Tommy, are being hidden by their mother. They are not allowed to go to school or make any friends, or even talk to strangers at all, and Tommy is not getting the medical attention he needs. I think even adults would find this book u [...]

    12. A girl has an isolated and lonely life with her brother. They were abducted by their own disfunctional mom years ago. She must make a difficult decision and go against her mom's strict rules of no contact with anyone to save her brother.

    13. A young girl torn between what she remembers and what is, Elsie chooses to change everything to save her brother when she tells someone that she isn't who she seems to be. She is a brave young heroine and her story is eloquently told from her point of view.

    14. Disturbing yet hopeful story of two children who are kidnapped by their non custodial mother. The characterization, especially of the main character, made this book for me.

    15. Eye-opening view of the world of fear and seclusion two children face after their mother abducts them.

    16. This book was pretty good. It was really sad, in the aspect that it was realistic, but it's a good reminder to reach out to others around us. I thought it was pretty good.
