Five Were Missing Author:Lois Duncan It was an ordinary school bus ride...at first. Glenn was being his usual wonder-boy self, while his brother Bruce quietly sat in his shadow. Shy, dark-haired Jesse French tried to concentrate on the book she was reading. Dexter, sullen and self-conscious about his handicap, sat alone.

It was incredible. It was impossible. But it was happening - they were being kidnapped.
This was a well written YA book. It's about 5 kids who are kidnapped on the way home from school on the bus. Suspenseful and well done. I actually read this on a lark because I ended up with several copies from a library box that came to me via a friend.
