Back Before Dark by Tim Shoemaker - softcover - (This is the second book in the series, but each book stands alone.)
My kids loved this exciting mystery story! We read it as a read-aloud...and they wouldn't let me stop reading! Each book in this series teaches an important character quality. Contemporary adventure and suspense for 8-12-year-old boys that will hold their attention. Not patronizing, skinny books for boys, but stories they can truly enjoy and learn from. Perfect for reluctant readers, and ideal for parents or teachers to read to their kids. Designed for boys . . . but they work great with girls, too!
The climax? You will not have any fingernails left by the final page. Taken! A detour through the park leads Cooper, Gordy, Hiro, and Lunk straight into a trap, and Gordy is abducted! The kidnapper, a brilliant high-school student with a bitter agenda, thinks it s all a big game, but evil has a way of escalating and consuming. Despite the best of police efforts, the hours tick by without a clue or a ransom call, leaving everyone to their own fears. Gordy is gone. Cooper descends deeper into a living nightmare, imagining the worst for his best friend and cousin. Hours stretch into days, and talks of a memorial service begin to surface. But Cooper still feels his cousin is alive and develops a reckless plan, changing all the rules. Now the one who set out to rescue his friend needs to be rescued himself.
