Good pacing, a lot of cliff hangers, easy read in terms of depiction of the story. A lot of twists and turns.
Could be a bit longer I guess.
Such a good thriller for young adults... kept me turning the pages And not wanting to let go. Gripping.
I honestly had no idea what was going on until pretty much the reveal, which I enjoyed. But then I found out what was going on and I was kind of iffy about it. However, as I finished reading the book, I was totally into it! It was insane and something I never would have guessed, but I really liked it! There were a lot of surprises that caught me off guard—what happened to the parents, what the deal with Roger was... So many crazy twists!
Lisa and Cory from book one, The New Girl , make an appearance, and it’s a little more than a cameo because they’re actually in a couple of scenes! And Arnie, Cory’s friend, also has a cameo. I thought that was very cool. And also, three books later, Cory and Lisa are still seem to be together!
Overall, I really enjoyed the mystery in Missing. I don’t know what I would do if my parents suddenly went missing—it’s just insane! I liked the characters well enough, and how polar opposite Cara and Mark were. As always, this Fear Street books was a short, fun read.
The Fear Street connection:
“The kids we met at school always acted surprised when we said we lived on Fear Street.”
Well, duh. And after this, you’ll know why. So, yeah. Mark and Cara live on Fear Street. Plus, some really weird stuff goes down in the Fear Street woods.
Brother and sister, Mark and Cara, come home from school to an empty house. Mom and Dad, addicted to work, have worked late before, but they always called. But the phone is out. Well that explains why they didn't call and they go to bed. The next morning, their parents are still not home. They talk to their weird cousin, Roger, but all he does is creep them out from his tiny attic room.
Mark and Cara travel to their parents' job (2 cities over) and are told they don't work at Cranford Industries, like their parents' said.
"There's no one named Burroughs working here. There never has been."
Detective Farraday seems to come at perfect timing. He "helps" the teens look for their parents. Meanwhile, Gena breaks up with Mark. Little white monkey skulls with yellow rhinestones in the eye sockets are everywhere. Where the hell are their parents?
Ovedrall, I really enjoyed this one.
