While snooping for his birthday presents Sam discovers a disturbing secret.  Across the top of an old newspaper article are the words "Missing" and a picture of him.  Not being a strong reader, Sam can't understand anything else except the name "Sam Bell".  Could this really be him? How had he come to live with Mac, the man who claims to be his grandfather?  Enlisting the help of his new friend Caroline, the pair set out to discover who Sam really is and where he came from.

This was a fun quick read.  The story was intriguing and well written.  It was totally clean, and would be perfect for a pre-teen reader.

Enjoy!
