Two weeks in New York City with your cool 25-year-old uncle Henry--freedom, at last! Your parents weren't crazy about the idea, but they're going to Japan and aren't about to leave you at home alone. But when you get to the city, things go horribly wrong. You're kidnapped by a gang of thugs that forces you to help them pull off a jewel heist. Next thing you know, your face is plastered all over the front pages of every New York City newspaper. You're on the run, accused of a crime you didn't mean to commit--how can you prove you're innocent?

About the author (1998)

Edward Packard was born in Huntington, New York in 1931 and is a graduate of Princeton University and Columbia Law School. He conceived of the idea and wrote what became the prototype book for Bantam's classic Choose Your Own Adventure series and wrote many other books for young readers. The six books in his Space Hawks series, dealing with Earth's defense against space aliens, were published in mainland China in 2004 in conjunction with that country's first manned space mission. Packard's nonfiction book about the size and scale of space and time, titled Imagining the Universe, won a Scientific American Young Readers Book Award. His educational math book, Big Numbers, was cited by Newsweek as one of the best children's books of the year. Packard's self-published novel, Notes from the Afterlife, was released in 2013 and his children's picture book, The Good and Bad Dragon, in 2014. The first edition of All It Takes was published in 2011.
