Dear Librarians,

My sister, a librarian, and my most exacting critic throughout my life, loves NEVER WAVE GOODBYE, the story of a woman who puts her daughter on the bus to camp only to find out fifteen minutes later that the counselor driving the bus is a phony and her daughter has been kidnapped. What follows is an unusual suspense novel, one based as much on a mother testing the bond she has with her daughter as it is on sleuthing.

"Terrific read," my sister wrote, to my great relief, after reading the first draft. I hope my librarian sister's recommendation means as much to you as it did to me.

R.L. Stine, who knows something about suspense, has this to say about NEVER WAVE GOODBYE. "Don't get on the bus—unless you're looking for a terrifying read. Magee shifts the suspense into Drive in chapter one—and then we're off on a chilling ride."
