Harriet Graham: A far away place

At first, Sean doesn't see anything wrong with going for a burger with his father, even if it's not his regular day for visiting. But when the meal stretches to a weekend on a boat and they end up in France, he begins to wonder if his dad is telling him the truth. And why can't he phone his mother?

The story is about the kidnapping of two young children by their father. The story is told from the point of view of the older child, Sean. This is a beautifully written book which manages to detail the deep emotions felt by all sides of this situation from each fo the parents, the two children, and even one of the children's best friend. I was particularly fascinated by the viewpoint Sean's friend Tinker had to offer. The book has a very realistic feel, and I highly reccomend it.
