KIRKUS REVIEW

The ordinary hazards inherent in babysitting increase to terror when Karen Canfield, the 14 year old narrator, finds that her 7 year old charge has been the 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.
