Grade 4-6–The siblings from the On the Run series (Scholastic) return for a new adventure. Aiden and Meg are having some difficulties adjusting to normal life after being fugitives while their parents were wrongly held in prison. Fast-paced and true to Kormans style, the novel has a cliff-hanger ending to every chapter. By page 10, Meg has been abducted. Only Aiden knows her well enough to interpret the clever clue she leaves, and he must learn to trust the man whom they previously saw as their enemy. The book will be popular with readers who want to know what happened after Meg and Aiden went home in the earlier titles, but it wont make much sense to anyone else.–Sharon R.

Gr. 4-7. From the very first page, the action is nonstop in this breathless thriller, the first book in Korman's Kidnapped series. Meg, 11, is abducted on her way home from school. Her brother, Aiden, 15, works with the FBI to find her and deliver the ransom money. In the meantime, Meg fights back with muscle and wit, even managing to sneak out an SOS letter. The hurtling plot, with mysterious meetings and high-tech surveillance, shifts between the two kids' viewpoints. As the first book in the Kidnapped series, this doesn't end with a rescue, and the references to what happened before this story actually begins (the kids' parents were framed for aiding terrorists and the kids survived as fugitives) are a bit confusing. Still, even reluctant readers will be asking for the second book, The Search, which is also now available. Hazel Rochman

The story is fabulous from start to finish and very engaging. I liked the action in this novel. I felt the author did a wonderful job of empowering the kids in this book and making the kids resourceful and creative in their approach to the world and how to deal with attackers.
thank you Gordan Korman!!
