Five years have passed since sixteen-year-old Angie Favorite’s mother disappeared without a trace. Since that day, Angie has managed to go through the motions of everyday life—until the summer morning when she’s abducted from a mall parking lot. Angie narrowly escapes, and her attacker is arrested, but he takes his life in jail before he can offer an explanation for his crime. When his mother contacts Angie, begging forgiveness on her son’s behalf, the girl agrees to meet with her in hopes of finding answers to the seemingly random attack. But when she arrives at the family’s massive estate, she is overcome by an unshakeable sense of foreboding…
Part thriller, part coming-of-age tale, Favorite is an engrossing young adult novel in which nothing—and no one—is as it seems.
16 year old Angie Favorite is 16 years old and lives with her grandmother and older brother. Her father is too busy trying to make it big as a rock star with is band and her disappeared 5 years ago. While running errands for her Grandmother is attacked and the mystery that unfolds is a truly twisted tale with Misery vibes.
The Sweet and Sour-
I found this young adult mystery to be engaging and slightly addicted though the beginning of the book starting off a bit slow for my taste. While it does take the author a bit to flesh out the story and plot once she does it is a fast paced and intriguing mystery. The author is able to make you second guess yourself and your gut with some amazing plot twist that surprise you at every turn.
The author creates an eerie and mysterious environment that in my opinion brings a certain Misery meets Pretty Little Liar vibe to the story. I really enjoyed cracking the mystery that is Where is Angie’s Mother and the end will shock even the most experienced mystery reader!
I would recommend this to any reader who loves a good mystery!
