This book captures you in the very first sentence: "She's not going to escape here either." The simple sentence arouses your sense of curiousity and cements your eyes to page after page. Your mind wanders, trying to uncover the mystery, a mystery that any amatuer slueth would have to read from cover to cover to be satisfied with the outcome. You hope with all your heart that the killer of the caregiver will return the baby to it's mother happy and healthy, harmed only of missing her mother. You feel for the mother, and are glad that this is only a story, not something that is happening in real life, although you know in the pit of your stomach that it happens every minute, every second, across the world.
You weep with joy at the last page,275, as you read the final sentence, '"Tickles Mommy." she giggles, "tickles."'
