Here are some stories about kids whose hearts led them to the strangest places. Even if you would rather not go to any of these places yourself, reading about them might keep you from ending up there. Or, you might discover it's where you wanted to be all along. You just never knew it existed. Oh, yes, and you can find treasure there, too. Of course, you can.
The Kidnapping of Mary (Young Adult)
Mary Elizabeth Cooper thinks she knows pretty much everything there is to know about life. But she is about to become a statistic.
“What would you do if everyone broke the rules and there was nobody but yourself to stand up for you? Listen. The truth is, there's a big ocean of space between the way things are, and the way they're supposed to be. But nobody wants to admit it. Gets pretty confusing, if you ask me. And another thing. It's awful to be ruled over by somebody stronger than you. It just isn't fair. Dads are supposed to be heroes, right? Well, the first time I ever saw my Dad I couldn't believe we were related.”
Here is the story of a father and a daughter, and an unexpected adventure that goes farther than places...
Maybe even forever.
