Description

Two street kids get tangled in a plot over their heads - and risk an unexpected connection - in this heart-pounding thriller by Tim Wynne-Jones. (Age 14 and up)

Boy, did Blink get off on the wrong floor. All he wanted was to steal some breakfast for his empty belly, but instead he stumbled upon a fake kidnapping and a cell phone dropped by an "abducted" CEO, giving Blink a link to his perfect blonde daughter. Now Blink is on the run, but it's OK as long as he's smart enough to stay in the game and keep Captain Panic locked in his hold. Enter a girl named Caution. As in "Caution: Toxic." As in "Caution: Watch Your Step." She's also on the run, from a skeezy drug-dealer boyfriend and from a nightmare in her past that won't let her go. When she spies Blink at the train station, Caution can see he's an easy mark. But there's something about this naïve, skinny street punk, whom she only wanted to rob, that tugs at her heart, a heart she thought deserved not to feel. Charged with suspense and intrigue, this taut novel trails two deeply compelling characters as they forge a blackmail scheme that is foolhardy at best, disastrous at worst - along with a fated, tender partnership that will offer them each a rare chance for redemption.

      • bioText:

        I was born at a very young age in a very old country—England. I ran away from home when I was three with a tea cozy on my head. And if you don't know what a tea cozy is, that's because it's something only people in very old countries use to keep their tea warm when it's in a pot. Somehow, I ended up in northern British Columbia, Canada, just a raven's flight from Alaska. We moved a lot when I was a kid, and that's a big part of what I write about, I guess: not the moving so much as how great it is to have a place you can call home and friends and all that. I grew up. Well, it was bound to happen. But I didn't grow that far up, if you know what I mean. I went to university and all that and got married and have three fabulous kids, all of whom are grown up, more or less, themselves. But what I mean is that, while I grew up I didn't grow away from childhood. I still have a whole bunch of it inside that I'm sorting through: an attic's worth of mostly junk but with some gems of memories and a lot of unanswered questions. That's probably why I write for kids.


        Whatever I write it's always a mystery. I've written more than thirty books: picture books, middle-grade novels, novels for young adults and older adults. But whatever I write there is always something that someone is looking for and there is usually someone who doesn't want them to get it! I'm thrilled about my thriller Blink & Caution. Blink is a street kid living hard—living on his wits. He stumbles into a big con game and thinks he might get in on the action. Wrong! Luckily, he also runs into Caution, as in "Caution: Contents under Pressure." Their relationship starts off rocky, to say the least, but then she joins up with him and—well, you've got to see what happens. I am crazy about this book.

        Three Things You Might Not Know About Me:


        1. I lived in twelve different houses by the time I finished high school. I used to wonder if my father was running from the law, but I don't think he was. He was an engineer with a great sense of humor, although the moving sure wasn't funny!
        2. I got to read with J.K. Rowling at the Sky Dome in Toronto in October 2000. There were more than 20,000 people at the reading. It's the biggest public reading ever—you can look it up in the Guinness Book of Records!
        3. I have never been to Timbuktu. Even though we share the same name. Well, partially, anyway. But what I want to know is what ever happened to Timbukone?
