You're the author of this book! In this book, Troy, the main character rescues a six-year-old she sees thrown from a ferry as it moves past the ferry she's on. She jumps in and rescues him, swimming back to shore. Then she decides that it might be his parents who threw him off of the ferry. Later, after he's moved in to her house, he tells her he was kidnapped. And then a thriller of sorts ensues, driven mainly by the utter, utter stupidity of the main character and unlikely plot twists that were nonetheless entirely predictable. All secondary characters exist only to help Troy out when she needs it, at which point they no longer need to be bothered with. Also, there's lots of stating the obvious, demonstrating areas the author researched and enough padding to make a decent quilt. Avoid this one.
