If you’re look for action-oriented fiction that can be enjoyed by anyone in the family about fourth grade and up, consider Gordon Korman’s “Kidnapped” trilogy. I love that the premise of the book centers on a family and their love for each other. The Falconer family has already been through terrible times in the previous series “On The Run” (which maybe I should have read first). Just when life seems to be back to normal, the unthinkable happens: Meg, the 11-year-old daughter is abducted in broad daylight. Her 15-year-old brother Aiden is determined to find her, and their overwrought parents have to work with the FBI, whom they do not trust.
Instead of reading the printed book, I chose the audio version. My public library system had the downloadable audio-book available for checkout through the Hoopla app. The story was read aloud by two different narrators, one being the voice of Aiden and the other the voice of Meg. The book was about two and a half hours long, just perfect to listen to as I worked on sewing. Try out this trilogy!
