- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2014 November #1
Try as she may, Emmy can't let go when her conscience pulls her deeply into a good-deed saga. Through a "neediest families" effort her mother's company is running, she learns of a girl, Sophie, whose family lacks food. For a school service project, Emmy and friends gather donations and get them delivered anonymously. The trouble begins when Emmy continues the donations at some risk to herself and without her parents or school knowing. Sophie's family goes missing; there's an evil neighbor fencing stolen goods in the family's apartment building; and Emmy's friend's brother has a bad car accident during one of his food runs to Sophie's apartment. Readers will enjoy the suspense of the search for Sophie, the dealings with the fencer, and plotting how it all may turn out. And they will marvel at Emmy's tenaciousness and erstwhile charm, while wondering, too, just how much a young teen can and should risk to do the right thing. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
