IF YOU DO NOT feel your book is good enough for you readers to buy another, then you are definitely in the wrong profession. YOU SHOULD HAVE CONFIDENCE WE WILL BUY ANOTHER BECAUSE WE:
1-Like your writing style.
2-Love your characters.
3-You give us a story that holds our interest start to finish.
4-YOU RESPECT US ENOUGH TO END A STORY AND START A NEW ONE.
Most readers find a book then LOVE IT OR HATE IT. If we love it we will then read another by that author and then another because we are loyal and BECAUSE WHILE THERE MAY BE 1000S UPON 1000S OF AUTHORS..there are not that many really good ones that keep us coming back.
Will definitely not keep her as a preferred author. Do not like BEING FORCED to buy a book.
Her family deals with their own secrets while she is gone reflecting on the choices they made.
Not every book is for every reader, sometimes an author writes a book that doesn’t work for a reader...this was that book for me.
I didn’t technically not DNF this book, but I did skim this book...however I didn’t read it in its entirety.
This was a chore to read. It was a long arduous journey. Very little progression occurred between characters. Being a character driven story the issues surrounding these characters didn’t help find their daughter. In fact, very little detective or investigative work took place. Life just carried on.
I felt the story was stagnant moving at a snails pace. The drive itself too forever dragging out the scenes of her sleeping and complaining about the food he gifted her. Macy did very little to survive this situation other than concede to his wishes.
I was confused by this captures behavior towards Macy considering he took her to replace his daughter.
I was disappointed with her father’s attitude as if he couldn’t be bothered by her daughters actions for running away because it was infringing upon his time working on his online blog.
The mother was a scattered brain mess of actions. Basically, running around like a chicken with her head cut off.
Macy annoyed me with her stubbornness over her capturers insensitivity to her vegan diet. He’s not your friend he’s an abductor.
Every character was self absorbed, hung up on their own issues, failing to find their daughter.
I had the sense this author did very little research on the topics of Stockholm syndrome, abductors, and psychological abuse.
Macy was abducted and all she kept worrying about were insignificant things like clothes, makeup, and her vegan diet for losing weight.
I felt like this entire ordeal was a hard lesson against Macy’s parents for being too strict and inattentive towards her.

Macy meets an online date. At 15 she has been given all the warnings but of course it won’t happen to her- until it does- she gets kidnapped. An intriguing story of a man who somehow (we don’t get told) lost his daughter and wife (did he kill them?). Macy has to submit to being Heather.
An excellent story line with a disappointing ending- to the point that I felt cheated. I fully understand wanting to take the reader into the next book but to stop so abruptly with not even a single thread concluded is not a story in my book. I really would have liked to know how this concluded but will not be buying the second book in case the same thing happens.
There are mistakes aplenty as well, which in no way helped my experience. Words dropped from sentences like ".....an old version Jared's profile pictures" or "....one big, tongue-sticking at him" or "...what Macy needs is for us to thinking she's going to come back" then this sentence got an additional word-"....he wouldn't let her to go on a date."
I didn't believe a father, finding his daughter was missing would remove batteries from the house phone nor ignore a call coming in from said daughter's best friend's mother !! Wouldn't happen, simple as that. Neither would Zoey or Alex address adults as they did with such contempt. There is no way that Heather's grandparents wouldn't recognise her only one year since they last saw her, either, unless they're absolute cretins !!! It just comes across as a load of old guff for me.
Some sentences are written like a juvenile composed them, like "....it was hard to tell with such little light" and "He took a few more steps closer"......horrible use of the language.
It's all way too unbelievable although a YA audience may enjoy it more.
I think that every teenager should read this book and maybe they would think twice about talking to and meeting up with strangers.After all in real life and in the book people aren't always who or what they may seem!
I read a lot of books and find that occasionally during reading my mind wanders,which is usually because the plot isn't gripping enough.I never had this issue with this book,I have just finished the 2nd book and want to start the 3rd book shortly.
I'm really annoyed that I downloaded what is described as a complete book and discovered that's not the case at all.
I have never read anything before by Stacy Claflin but will now add her to my favourites.
Now. If I chose to read instead of sleep (I couldnve read in the morning anyway) its a lot coming from me. Now, if you dont mind me… Get this book asap!! You wont regret it :)
> Some random 13 year old who loves these type of books ;)
I really felt what Macy must have been feeling, the author was great at portraying each emotion.
