The Lovereading4Kids comment

Fun to read, this is a cleverly constructed narrative of different voices all telling their version of the same story. Students at Cathcart College, an exclusive boarding school, plan a novel way of raising money for charity. The kidnapping is planned by Trixie who is determined to raise money for children starving in Africa but Jade, Holly, Mark and Wiki help too. And a great deal goes wrong! A warm-hearted adventure full of amusing and credible characters.

Lovereading comment:

A clever, funny and thought-provoking crime caper featuring five kids who hatch a daring plan to fake a kidnap in order to raise money for charity. Compulsively readable, this is a real roller-coaster of a ride that will appeal to anyone aged 11+ with a sense of humour.

Synopsis

Missing, Believed Crazy by Terence Blacker

Five kids at an exclusive private school hatch a daring plan to fake a kidnap and raise money for charity. There's brainy scholarship boy, Wiki, super-glam Jade, too-cool-for-school Mark, everyone's best friend Holly - and then there's Trix. It was her brilliant idea in the first place. What could possibly go wrong?
