Lucy Hull, a young children's librarian in Hannibal, Missouri, finds herself both kidnapper and kidnapped when her favorite patron, ten-year-old Ian Drake, runs away from home. The precocious Ian is addicted to reading, but needs Lucy's help to smuggle books past his overbearing mother, who has enrolled Ian in weekly antigay classes with celebrity Pastor Bob. Lucy stumbles into a moral dilemma when she finds Ian camped out in the library after hours with a knapsack and an escape plan.

This book may have been well-intentioned, but it was a boring mess. The librarian had all the judgment of a hamster. The book might have been a nice short story, but dragging the reader across the country on an aimless journey was pointless. The young boy develops his own opinion about the rules and reasoning of adults. Requiring the boy to lie to protect her seems to cancel out the goal of protecting him from misguided adults. Horrible book. Kristi & Abby Tabby
