Book Rate: 9.6

I found this book pretty good, but I don't get the end. It was really confusing. Though overall the book is fabulous. Is like a mystery, finding themissing person and solving a crime.

I really like the character in the book like Tristan and Krista. They are the Major's children and they are nice. So is the other character. They were nice to Rory and her sister, Darcy.

At first when Rory and her family arrivied, Rory was having flashes about Steven Nell. And they thought it was still not save here, because Rory kept on seeing things and hearing things that is about Steven Nell. And yeah I would get that. Moving into a new place when you were chase by a serial killer in your old life, It's pretty scary. I would hear things and see things that weren't suppose to be seen.

At first when I saw thw cover of the book, I thought the girl was talking on the phone so I thought it wsa going to be boring but then I read the summary and turn out pretty interesting. So that's why never judge a book by its cover unless you read the suumary of the book or the first page. Then if you don't like it you could judge it.

~Happy Reading to all Bookworms and Bookfandom
