There are two groups of characters to be found in this novel. The first character type is the teenagers. Macy is a typical teenager. She goes to school, has friends, and parents who have rules. Starting off with typical teenage drama, Macy isn't happy about not being allowed to date. Normal house rules for young females. She resolves to do what she wants. Then there are her younger brother and her best friends. Of course, all of this spells T R O U B L E.
The other group consists of the adults. Chad, the cheating husband, who has a change of heart. Maybe it is just that he starts to listen to his heart. Alyssa, the mother, who just wants to rear her children and be a good wife. There are a few others that are great supporting characters, but giving too much information would spoil the story.
As this is the first novel I have ever read by Stacy Claflin, I will say I am hooked. Her characters are dynamic. The plot is nice and twisty - surprises rather than the old clichés. The tone and mood ebb and flow from tense and worrisome to hopeful and longing. The only bad thing about this book is having to wait to see what happens next. I can scarcely wait to visit Macy and her entourage again.
I received a copy of this ebook in exchange for my honest review. The review and opinions expressed are my own.
I will warn you now, this book is not for the faint of heart. Gone begins with a mysterious man, Chester, watching a girl, and thinking about how he knows her better than anyone else. If that isn’t a creepy way to start a book, I don’t know what is. As you continue reading, the POV changes to Macy, a fifteen year old girl who sits in a park, waiting for Jared, the boy of her dreams (who she had only met online) to pick her up so that they could go on a date. Yes, you read that right.
From there, I’m sure that you can figure out what happens next. Jared suddenly tells her that he’s busy so he’s going to have his dad pick her up instead. While Macy hesitates for a moment, she eventually decides to go along with the plan because she trusts Jared. She’s very smart. Not. For a couple of minutes, everything is fine, until they drive past Jared’s high school. At that point, Macy realizes that something is wrong, very wrong, and asks Jared’s dad where they are going. And that...that is when it is revealed that there is no Jared. The man in question is actually Chester, the creep from the first chapter. Shortly after that is revealed, Chester gets tired of Macy’s questions and hits her over the head with a flashlight.
As the book continues, the reader learns more and more about Chester’s past. He used to have a wife and a daughter, but they both went missing. Well, missing might not be the right word for it, but Macy doesn’t know what the correct word is. All that she learns is that his daughter, Heather, used to look just like her, and Chester now wants Macy to be her replacement.Read more ›
I found myself relating to the parents and how they didn’t know how to proceed with their lives. Every time the police called I held my breath hoping that they would have a clue that would lead to putting Macy back home. Not knowing a lot about the family’s history, I enjoyed learning about them. Learning how there was so much distance and unhappiness before Macy’s kidnapping, yet being able to pull together and support each other in this horrific time. I know there is more coming about this family, but I have the definite feeling that this family will come out on top and closer than ever.
Macy is courageous. Knowing that she put herself into this position and that she needs to remember her family and how they love her, she keeps strong and takes note of all the things around her trying to help herself escape. She also is so smart. She works hard to realize what will keep Chester from punishing her and keep herself as safe as possible. I admire her for holding herself together and doing what she has to.
This is not an easy book. It is a tough subject that Stacy Claflin handles with great care. I am anxious for the next book in this series to be released. Definitely pick this book up and read it.
