Journal Entry 1 by wingPlum-crazywing from Brighouse, West Yorkshire United Kingdom on Wednesday, March 19, 2014

This book has not been rated.

An atmospheric & at times unsettling read which explores the devastation that a missing child has on a family. Steven has grown up in a family where such a tragedy has occured. His Uncle Billy disappeared many years before Steven was born & is presumed murdered by all but Steven's Nan. Steven's one ambition is to find Billy's body to bring peace & closure to his Nan. Her cruelty & indifference to Steven is heartbreaking at times but Billy's disappearence has left her so bitter & twisted (as well it might!) it would seem she no longer cares about her living relatives.

The suspense builds beautifully with the letters between Steven & Avery keeping the tension growing, as Avery finally realises that the letters are from a twelve-year-old boy, resulting in a gripping climax. Well worth a read :o)

The book was just sitting on a bench by the harbor - an invitation to take and join in. It was one of those lovely sunny, but cold days you get in Scotland around this time of the year and Port Patrick was looking its best. We were on a day trip out, and spending a week in the area. I had heard of Bookcrossing and was interested to learn more. I intend to read it and pass it on. 


Journal Entry 4 by jenpatola at Buckley, Wales United Kingdom on Tuesday, January 20, 2015

8 out of 10

Found this book at Hellens Manor, Much Marcle, I think in July, 2014; have brought it to South Africa where I'm on holiday and will probably leave it in Cape Town. This book is a good read, I'm about three quarters of the way through and will be disappointed when I've finished it!
