This book is a well written novel that I would recommend to someone in the age between 11 and 18. I could really relate to the main characters and understand their feelings in certain situations while I was reading. The book is full of surprises and will never get boring. Once you start reading it, you will be stuck. The reason why I really enjoyed reading this book, is not only because it’s thrilling but because of its language. For me, as a reader with English as my second language, this was a perfect book. The language was simple without being childish. I also like how the author builds up the book, all the way from the beginning to the end. As I mentioned earlier I would really recommend this novel to both boys and girls, English speaking or not in the age between 11 and 18. Enjoy.
There are engaging mysteries in this book that would've been enjoyable, had it not been for Lauren. As a young teenager, her behaviour should be excused but I can't bring myself to do it. I know at fourteen I wouldn't have made such rash decisions (on a huge scale!) or been so frighteningly self-centred. I don't know if it was the author's intention to make her main character this way for development reasons, but I certainly hope so! Otherwise, just kill me now. "Why was he acting like this was my fault?" No comment...
Throughout the book is a very subtle romance that helps tie the plot together. From the very beginning, readers will see that Jam, her best friend since primary school, is romantically interested in her. He refuses to leave Lauren on her own so he always goes along with her risky plans, being pulled into dangerous situations that are bigger than just the two of them. Overall, he's the sweet guy you can take home but does Lauren see it at all? No, she's too busy minding her own business. I admit, her total ignorance about almost everything annoyed me, but they do have some sweet moments together you can appreciate.
Girl, Missing's action begins on page one. Soon after the book begins, Lauren makes the discovery and gets thrown into the thick of things. With people determined to keep her history a secret, she'll face criminals, dangerous folks in the dark and more! Sometimes things were just hard to imagine though. Are we meant to believe that, at fourteen, these kids could just fly around the country with barely any money and not get killed by their attackers or caught by the authorities? That they would be able to survive on their own? This doesn't happen in real life and coincidences (conflict-solving-wise) don't exist. I don't care that this is fiction - my belief was not suspended!
In saying that, this book isn't all bad! Once you get past Lauren's immaturity, you might find yourself enjoying the mystery. With confusing diaries, memories and secrets with a few small twists thrown in for good measure, McKenzie has set up a good backstory for the sequel, which I enjoyed much more. Even with the disappointing lead, I found myself really liking all of the secondary characters so I guess that's another plus! Girl, Missing deals with the issues of not knowing where you quite belong and not appreciating what you have until you've lost it. Interesting but flawed!
