Overview
Ben has always wanted to be a cop, so he's intrigued when police officers show up at the door, asking for his parents. Then his parents arrive after the police leave and rush him and his sister into the car, insisting they are going on a vacation. Ben's a little skeptical his family doesn't go on vacations. After they lose the police in a high-speed car chase and end up in a remote cabin deep in the woods, Ben discovers his parents' secret: millions of dollars were deposited into their bank account by accident, and they took the money and ran off. Ben isn't sure what to think. Are his parents criminals? And because he ran off with them, is he a criminal, too?"

In this dynamic adventure, an overt tribute to My Side of the Mountain, 12-year-old Ben Silver, nicknamed Cop for his endless strings of questions, spends his days indoors, making stop-action movies about detectives and eating junk food. When police come looking for his parents, Ben is thrust into his own thriller. Hiding out in his grandfathers run-down cabin, Ben tries to piece together clues and determine what role he will play in his parents crime story: In Bens stories, the good guys always won. But Ben didnt know who the good guys were in this story. Or where it would end. When Ben and his younger sister, Olive, end up on the run, he faces both moral questions and very real life-or-death situations. Banckss (Mac Slater Hunts the Cool) characters, particularly Bens parents, are rich with their own failings, requiring expanded definitions of heroism and redemption. Suspense and fear make Ben feel like hes living his own stop-action movie, and indeed his story has both the exciting pace and high stakes of a summer blockbuster. Ages 1012. Agent: Catherine Drayton, Inkwell Management. (Nov.)
