Mazer, N.F. (2008). The Missing Girl. NY: HarperTeen. 284 pages.
This was a very quick read about five typical sisters who laugh, cry, fight, and, at the end of the day, love each other unconditionally. The girls range in age from 11 (Autumn) to 17 (Beauty). As they walk to school every day, they are watched by a man who surreptitiously watches them and eventually becomes obsessed with them. I don’t want to give anything away, but picks his favorite sister and manages to kidnap her. Read the book to find out what happens and how the other sisters cope with the kidnapping. This book is written in alternating points of view – mostly, Autumn, Beauty, and the man’s — which can be confusing at times, but once you can figure out who is narrating, it is impossible to put down.
