DescriptionTwelve-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
