When Cameron rescues a baby abandoned in the woods, everyone says it is a miracle. A stroke of luck that he just happened to be there, riding his bike along that trail, and heard the baby's cry. But Cameron has a secret: It wasn't just luck. He was there because his twin sister Katie begged him to go. Did Katie know about the baby? Is she covering for someone? At first Cameron just wants some answers but once he knows the truth he has to decide what to do with it.

Product Description

Review

"While packing in lots of facts about teenage pregnancy, this fast read is more than a problem novel. Cameron's seething jealousy of his gifted twin, her failure, and his growing bond with his sister—and with his niece—will hold readers." (Booklist 2009-09-15)

"A fast-paced and engrossing read. Stevenson deals with mature issues, including sexual abuse and teen pregnancy, in an accessible fashion by employing a simple writing style that is ideal for an audience with still-developing reading skills. The plot of the story moves forward swiftly, progressing primarily through the use of dialogue that has a natural quality. In the Woods is an interesting exploration of sibling relationships and family responsibility that will appeal to both genders...Recommended. " (CM Magazine 2009-09-04)

"Stevenson brings this grim reality to life as she describes Cameron's struggle to face the truth about his sister. Only 124 pages long, In the Woods takes readers quickly into the emotionally charged situation, and keeps them on the edge of their seats right to the end." (TeensReadToo.com 2009-10-20)

"Good for students who are interested in reading about topics that are serious however need a book that has a more accessible reading level." (Resource Links 2009-10-01)

"The easily accessible story presents some compelling and complicated issues surrounding teenage pregnancy." (The Horn Book Guide 2010-04-01)

"Recommended where hi/lo readers are needed in high schools." (Tri State Young Adult Book Review Committee 2010-01-01)

"The plot moves along fairly quickly, and the characters are well-developed, especially Cameron. I could hear his voice and was with him every step of the way.The ending of the novel is particularly moving and not, perhaps, what one might expect. The issue of teen pregnancy is dealt with frankly, but without judgement, and with compassion." (Canadian Teacher Magazine 2010-05-01)

From the Back Cover

It's a bundle of blankets. I pull back the top layer cautiously, and there it is. It's a baby. When Cameron rescues a baby abandoned in the woods, everyone says it is a miracle. A stroke of luck that he just happened to be there, riding his bike along that trail, and heard the baby's cry. But Cameron has a secret: it wasn't just luck. He was there because his twin sister Katie begged him to go. Did Katie know about the baby? Is she covering for someone? At first Cameron just wants some answers…but once he knows the truth, he has to decide what to do with it.

Format:Paperback
Cameron's sister, Katie, asks him to do her a favor. "Just do this one thing," is what she asks, followed by, "Don't tell anyone."

He's not happy to be riding through the woods in the rain, but Katie looked kind of freaked out. When Cameron stops for a moment, he hears something. He listens carefully and hears it again. It sounds like crying. It is crying. In fact, it's a baby!

Cameron can't believe he has found what looks like a newborn wrapped in blankets out in the woods. He wraps it in his sweater and zips it inside his coat and bikes out to the road. After a few tries, he gets a car to stop and pick him up. Luckily, the driver is a nurse. She quickly checks on the baby and heads to the nearest hospital.

The good news is the baby will survive. The bad news is Cameron is pretty sure he knows whose baby it is. He cautiously answers questions from doctors, a social worker, and the police, but the answer they all want to hear, he keeps to himself.

IN THE WOODS presents the distressing scenario of an abandoned infant. It's a story all too common in the news today. Author Robin Stevenson brings this grim reality to life as she describes Cameron's struggle to face the truth about his sister.

Only 124 pages long, IN THE WOODS takes readers quickly into the emotionally charged situation, and keeps them on the edge of their seats right to the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest book ever April 10 2013
By Cherie H - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In the book "In the Woods" was about a boy named Cameron who discovered a newborn baby! He had no idea what to do with it. Call the cops? Leave it? Take it? No idea. Cameron had to think about why his twin sister sent him there in the first place. Was it his sisters' baby? A friend's baby? Why was his sister Katie involved? Once Cameron knows all the truth he has to decide what to do with it.
I give the book five stars. The book really makes people think of what's going to happen, and it definitely keeps you on your toes. It also an important topic because it relates to young teens now a days. I recommend this book for people who like drama, and mystery.
