TREAD SOFTLY

The ordinary hazards of babysitting increase to terror when Karen Canfield, the 14-year-old narrator, finds that her 7-year-old charge has been the sole witness of a hit-and-run murder. Orphan karen solves the mystery of her own background while shielding little Laurie from the driver of the car. The isolation of adolescence is well captured here and the story bounces with karen's resilient youth.
