Editorial Reviews

Review

We first meet Milo Shoemaker...the day of his father's funeral...was it an accident, suicide...or, worse, murder? ...the plot moves along at a brisk pace with plenty of action, romance and intrigue. Milo's unyielding determination to discover the truth and expose corporate fraud will likely make Cappo's page-turner a hit...
--Kirkus Reviews

About the Author

Nan Willard Cappo's first novel was CHEATING LESSONS (Simon & Schuster/Atheneum), an Edgar Award nominee for best Young Adult Mystery, Junior Library Guild selection, and an ALA Popular Paperback for Young Adults. She likes to write about ordinary people forced to make extraordinary choices--if the choices are dangerous, even better. UNACCOUNTED FOR was plotted during long drives through southeast Michigan for her day job, selling education materials to schools. Like Hemingway, she took a few liberties with the state's geography (usually by accident) and hopes sharp-eyed readers will excuse it and not send her irate emails.

More About the Author

Nan Willard Cappo is a lifelong reader who grew up in Pittsburgh as one of six siblings, attended the University of Notre Dame, and raised three competitive children of her own in Michigan, the setting for her first novel, CHEATING LESSONS--an Edgar Nominee for Best YA Mystery. Her latest novel is also a mystery set in Michigan, but UNACCOUNTED FOR is geared toward older teens (15+) and adults who like danger, suspense, and tough moral choices. One critic described Cappo's work as "entertaining coming-of-age books with a conscience--but no vampires."

This is a young adult mystery and I really like it. The characters are rich and well-developed. The mystery is really that - a mystery that doesn't get solved until the very end. there is plenty of intrigue, and close calls. There is also realistic moral issues that have to be faced by these young people.

I think adults will like this as much as young adults. Of course, it is the young adults in the story who seek out and find the clues that unravel the mystery of Milo's father's death and the millions of dollars that have been embezzled from Wolverine motors.

There is also the element of young adult romance, which is handled very well by the author. It is there, but doesn't overwhelm the story.

Not wanting to give away the story, I will say that I enjoyed the book and hardly put it down until I had it finished. Mature young adult readers will love it.

I received a copy of the book in exchange for writing a review.

Unaccounted For by Nan W. Cappo entertains as it rolls smoothly through to the revelation of how Milo's father died--suicide, accident, or murder? Characters are vividly drawn, and the SE Michigan setting is nicely realized. Good to see a YA/adult crossover novel set in the present-day environs of Detroit that deals with the difficult issue of how far can one go to help others. Wolverine Motors has its problems, but it does support a number of good people by providing work when other car companies are failing. Should Milo continue to undermine the foundations of the company when he begins to understand what might have happened to his father? Cappo gives her characters issues worth fighting for . . . issues that have no easy answers. Milo is likeable and has been raised well. His concern for his young siblings and his widowed mother is admirable. Added to this mix is the gorgeous daughter of the company president. . . . Cappo's multi-layered book delivers a good read. Enjoyed it!

Format: Paperback
When I first received the email to read this book, Nan Cappo, author of Unaccounted For, she had said that this is a young adult book but was recently told it was more of a "new adult" book. I must say I agree (75%) and disagree (25%).

Unaccounted For, begins with a family getting over their fathers suicide to discover their house had been robbed during his funeral. Believing his father had taken the easy way to get out of his gambling debts, Milo Shoemaker is told a secret that destroys his heart. His father smuggled $1 million from the company he worked for, Wolverine Motors. But something just doesn't seem right, and Milo will find out the truth behind this whole thing.

This isn't a book I would normally pick up. But I decided to give it a shot anyway, thinking that I may just enjoy it. I was right for the most part.

I am an avid reader, so I can usually guess the ending of the book within the first 10 chapters. But Nan Cappo totally hid the ending well, I was never able to guess it until it was staring me in the face. The whole time I was hoping for the downfall of the bad guy. I kept thinking that soon they will get hard evidence of this mans crimes but things kept building and building and the puzzle pieces got tinier and tinier. What seemed to be a 25 piece puzzle turned into 500 piece puzzle. This must have taken a long time to completely formulate.

It was an enjoyable mystery and I definitely liked being able to understand the view points of Milo, Ellie, and Zaffer. But what I didn't like was the over attention to detail. And this is where I think its more for the mature YA reader or an adult. For it to be targeted to the young adult audience it has to be a little more vague.

When I started this book, I didn't trealize it was categorized as a Young Adult genre. Unaccounted For is a story of heartbreak, mystery, morality, taking responsibility, and learning valuable life lessons while finding love. All this and a good who-dunit to boot. For me this was a book I continued to think about when I wasn't reading and couldn't wait to get back to. I highly recommend Unaccounted For to anyone looking for a good, wholesome read about monsters of the human kind where good wins out over evil. Or does it?

Truthfully, this novel was a nice surprise. For the most part, it was well-written. Certain details became redundant after awhile. There was too much emphasis on Ellie's ability with a gun, the boys' survival skills, and something else that I, of course, can't remember right now. While I thought it was a decently written story, at times I felt like I was being led along more than I needed to be. I also had most of it figured out long before the resolution. That being said, I read a lot, and with the Kindle and all of the free books available, figure I will be reading my share of crappy writing. This book doesn't fall under that category, and I am happy I read it.

Format: Paperback
Unaccounted For was exciting, well-written, and made me wish my real friends were as smart and fun as these characters! Each chapter ends with a cliffhanger, and I absolutely didn't see the ending coming. Once I'd finished it the first time, though, I went back and read it again (that's how good it was) and I picked up on some subtle, cleverly-hidden clues I'd missed the first time around. The main character, Milo, has lots of personality and is fun to root for, and I loved his funny friend Zaffer. The triangle of Ellie's relationship with her father, her relationship with Milo, and Milo's relationship with Ellie's father is just a little twisted and had me wondering how it would all work out - but it did, and satisfyingly too. I'd put Nan Cappo in the same league with Nancy Farmer, Eloise McGraw, and Mary Stewart. If you like mysteries, good writing, and characters you wish you could invite to your next party, don't miss this book!
