Blink and Caution by Tim Wynne-Jones

Told in alternate voices, Blink is the male perspective, while Caution tells the same story from the female point of view. Blink and Caution are runaways, both trying to survive on the streets. When Blink breaks into a hotel room, looking for a free meal, he finds himself in the middle of a kidnapping of a powerful businessman. The story is all over the news, and no one knows the truth except Blink. To tell, though, would expose his past, something he does not want to do. Caution is trying to escape her abusive drug-dealing boyfriend. When their paths collide on a train, both work to hide the past from one another, but find they are building a relationship, too. Eventually, Blink realizes he has to save the businessman and can only do it with Caution’s help and by telling the whole truth.

A story that  slowly uncovers  the background and history of each of the characters, while also moving present day events forward. A reminder that there is always more to a person than what meets the eye.
