Wanted! By Caroline B. Cooney
This book was ok. It is definitely juvenile fiction. It does involve murder and a young child running away because she is a suspect in her father’s murder investigation. The book was well written and the plot was ok, but like I said it is geared toward a young audience. I did some skimming, but overall a good way to pass a boring afternoon. I would recommend it to high school teachers for assigned student reading. 2 out of 5 stars.
Alice Robie's father has been murdered, and the police have an e-mail message in which Alice confesses to the crime. When her own mother suspects her, Alice has no choice but to flee in the hope of proving her innocence.
