\\\\\\\\Korman, Gordon. The Abduction. 2006. 138p. Scholastic/Apple, paper, $4.99 (0-439-84777-X).
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
