My ex-stepmother just handed me a baby, and she’s driving away.

When Kit Innes’s estranged ex-stepmother, Dusty, unexpectedly drives up and pushes a large cloth-covered parcel into Kit’s arms, Kit doesn’t know what to expect. Especially when the bundle turns out to be a tiny, adorable baby. A tiny, adorable, mysterious baby boy. Whose baby is it? Where did Dusty go and when will she be back? Is the baby Kit’s half-sibling? Before these questions can be answered, a strange man comes after the infant, revealing a bigger mystery than just the baby’s identity. Along with her best friend Shea, her maybe-boyfriend Rowen, and his little sister, Muffin, Kit will be forced to risk everything to keep the anonymous boy safe. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Caroline B. Cooney including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.

{My Thoughts} – This was a fun mystery/adventure book to read. It was also an extremely quick read for me. I have always enjoyed the style in which Miss Cooney writes. The very first book of hers I’d ever read was the Face on the Milk Carton. That had been one of the best books that I’d read my freshman year in High School. So to me no other book of hers will ever compare. However, this book was well written, well thought out and one of the main characters was a baby! Who doesn’t like a book with a newborn in it?

Kit runs to her dad’s house to grab a shirt. While she is there her dad’s ex-wife shows up with a baby and dumps the baby on her. She doesn’t give an explanation just dumps the baby and leaves. Shortly after whole lot of bad and some interesting hardly any good things start happening in regards to Kit and the baby. Mostly because the baby is the most wanted character in the book. Literally nearly ever character in the book fights over the baby and most fight for the baby.

I really enjoyed how it was well put together and at the end it was wrapped up nicely. I think it is a great book for any teenager to read and in the process they can learn how hard it is to take care of a baby even if you are just the babysitter.
