THE GIRL WHO WAS TAKEN BY CHARLIE DONLEA

PUBLISHED BY PENGUIN BOOKS
REVIEW BY ALLY M

 

Ok. Let's start with this… This book is REALLY good. I love working out the twists and turns of complex, binge worthy TV shows like Game Of Thrones and Doctor Who. And from the start of this book I was sure I knew what was going to happen. But then I had another theory, and then another, until eventually (on my 4th theory of whodunit) I accepted that maybe I didn't know what was going on after all. 

It's a standard, holiday read. Who abducted the ever-popular Megan McDonald and her not so popular classmate Nicole on the same night? One escaped, one didn't. 

But it's not standard. 

It was captivating, fast paced and unpredictable. As I said, I REALLY liked it. To quote Jane, another Planet book reviewer - you should probably read it.
