I read the "Deep End of the Ocean", and I must admit, it didn't touch me, as this book did. "The Most Wanted" is a title that fits the book for many reasons, but mostly because this book is all about being wanted: as a daughter, a criminal, a lover, a mother, and a wife. To where you feel the most wanted, and who you feel the most wanted with is where you'll be the happiest. The main message is if you're not the most wanted, find somewhere you will be.

Surprisingly good. The story of a teenager who foolishly marries a prisoner and the attorney who becomes her mentor. This book was paced well and the characters were written well.

From the back cover: Arley Mowbray is young, smart and lonely. Very lonely. And then she strikes up a correspondence with a prison inmate--and, under the spell of his poetic, seductive letters, falls helplessly, stubbornly in love.

This is a fantastic story--a real page turner.

A naive teenage girl in south Texas, Arlie falls in love with her prison pen pal--a handsome and charming young felon who romances her through his letters. After a love affair that defies convention, they marry and have a child--all while the father is still in prison. But when he escapes to claim his family, what started as a passionate romance turns into a terrifying ordeal of obsession and desire. Arlie's only hope is a fiercely dedicated public aid lawyer who is more of a mother figure than Arlie has ever known, and the only one who can avert impending disaster.

Author of Deep End of the Ocean Jacquelyn Mitchard penned a compelling story - I hated the subject matter (you'll see) but got caught up in the characters nonetheless. That takes talent.

Good reading, but a sad tale.

Come on, even for a state like Texas, I found it difficult to believe that a 14 year old girl would marry, not to mention that the spouse was an imprisoned criminal & her parent gave permission. This story seemed ridiculous, unbelievable & full of nonsense.
Read her other book Cage of Stars. It's full of substance & much more plausible.

Mitchard is the author of the bestseller The Deep End of the Ocean.

From inside the jacket: "Arley Mowbray, only fourteen years old, is dreaming girlhood dreams in South Texas when, on a dare, she writes a letter to an imprisoned robber nearly twice her age. Almost overnight, the story of Arley and Dillon LeGrande becomes the stuff of legend. Their lives intertwine with rhythms of age-old tales of love, too reckless to last, too mesmerizing to flee."

"Transformed from an innocent to an outlaw's wife, and then the mother of his child, Arley unwittingly draws another into the eye of the hurricane..." and a public aid lawyer, Annie Singer, becomes the closest thing to a mother Arley has ever known and has to "stand between the girl and the storm."
