The Night She Disappeared

Written by April Henry

Kayla, Gabie and Drew work at Pete’s Pizza making and delivering pizza until one night Kayla requests a shift trade with Gabie, heads out to deliver a pizza, and never comes back. Since Gabie was the one the man asked for and Drew was the one who sent her out, never suspecting the order was a fake, both feel a sense of guilt. The front flap is written perfectly to suck in the reader and the book does not disappoint. It moves right along, written in first person chapters from the viewpoint of Gabie, Drew, Kayla and the mystery man who kidnaps Kayla. The characters are well fleshed out and the story is totally believable as it builds to a chilling conclusion.
