About this title
My ex-stepmother just handed me a baby, and she’s driving away.
When Kit Innes’s estranged ex-stepmother, Dusty, unexpectedly drives up and pushes a large cloth-covered parcel into her stepdaughter’s arms, Kit doesn’t know what to expect—especially when the bundle turns out to be a tiny, adorable, baby boy.
Whose child is it? Where did Dusty go and when will she be back? Is the baby Kit’s half-sibling? Before these questions can be answered, an angry, savage-looking man comes after the infant, pounding on Kit’s door and peering into her windows. Enlisting the help of her maybe-boyfriend, Rowen, and his little sister, Muffin, Kit will risk everything to keep the anonymous boy—and herself—safe.
Kit Innes is surprised to see her airheaded ex-stepmother looking so rumpled and unkempt (if there was one thing Dusty always did well, it was accessorize). And she is startled when Dusty casually hands her a blanket-wrapped parcel in passing. But Kit is absolutely stunned when she unwraps the bundle to discover a wrinkly pink baby--and looks up to see Dusty driving away. Whose baby is it? And what is Kit supposed to do? When an ugly, savagely angry man pounds on her door and peers in her windows, things grow more sinister, and soon whirl totally out of control. Kit, her almost-boyfriend Rowen, and his sturdy little sister Muffin are flung into wild car chases, kidnappings, and face-offs with a menacing couple for whom the baby is a pawn in a complex criminal scheme.
Caroline Cooney, who is best known for engrossing psychological thrillers like The Face on the Milk Carton and Driver's Ed, with this book has written a furiously paced mystery that teens will not be able to put down. Intriguing situations and breathless escapes are layered one on another, until the action rockets to a satisfying conclusion with a roundup of the bad guys--as well as clean diapers, a warm blanket, and a bottle for the baby. --Patty Campbell
