What are Rakuten Super Points™?
When I found the key marked "T" I thought it was the best thing that had ever happened to me. But it didn't turn out to be. (from the first line)
|Twelve-year-old Andy runs away from home because he's having trouble getting along with this stepfather. With amazing luck, he finds the key to a seldom-used hotel tower suite, where he hides out while making plans to join his dad in London. But his luck ends when he's kidnapped. Surviving this terrifying ordeal challenges every ounce of Andy's character.|
From the Publisher:
Twelve-year-old Andy feels he would be better off with his father in England than in his San Francisco home with his mother and her new husband. To raise the money needed to finance his trip to England, he stages his own kidnapping, but the plan backfires when someone decides to make the kidnapping a reality. ?A common family situation becomes action-filled drama in Bunting's capable hands.?--Booklist
Born in Ireland, Bunting moved to the United States in 1958 with her husband, Ed, and their three children. She began her career as a writer by taking a writing class at a local junior college. Her first book, THE TWO GIANTS, was published in 1972. In 1976, her book ONE MORE FLIGHT received the Golden Kite Award from the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.
