Reaching Kylee is a great YA mystery, very curious to find out more about Kylee and Price. Price is a sweetheart to Kylee and adores his little sister. I adore Tamara Hart Heiner writing style. Reaching Kylee is a great little book.
As he begins to make friends at school he finds out that the there's a slight problem with Kylee. She's not supposed to be there. He finds out that Kylee has disappeared and is presumed dead since a bloody article of clothing had been found but no body or ransom note had been found.
Price and Kaylee talk fairly often. They don't always get along but they seem to make up. Price's main problem is figuring out just what Kaylee is. No one else sees her (expect Price's dog and a woman in a new age-type store) which tends to mean she's a ghost. Yet, at the same time, there's a number of things that happen that indicate she is not a ghost.
So what is Kaylee? What are Price's feelings towards her? What exactly happened to her? Did her ultra-nasty father kill her? All this makes this a really fascinating book and not a typical ghost story at all.
Price moves in next door to Kylee and falls in love with her. Her life and story are complex, so Price suffers through the difficulty of deciding where to draw the line. When he tries cutting off the relationship, she leaves, and he worries he’s lost her forever, until he can find her again and make things right.
I look forward to reading Part II. There are questions that need to be answered.
Good clean book, can't wait for second book to come out.
I was given this book from author for a honest review, and this was my honest review.
I would recommend this book for any age, good clean writing.
Author Tamara Hart Heiner crafted a great young adult mystery romance novel in Reaching Kylee. When Pierce Hudson's mother died, his world changed forever. Left without a maternal anchor, Pierce has not resolved the issue of his mother's death. His life now seems superficial and inadequate. Hoping to give the family a new start, Pierce's father moves them to a new area, new house, and new high school.
Pierce finds his next door neighbor scary. Not just scary, they are crazy, the law comes around often, and their daughter has disappeared. Solving the mystery of Kylee's disappearance becomes an all-consuming obsession for Pierce. Will Pierce ferret out the circumstances surrounding his next door neighbors? Has Kylee run away or is she dead?
What Pierce discovers, is not what he expected. Grab a comfort seat, my young adult mystery romance novel of Reaching Kylee follows.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Primarily a young adult mystery novel, author Tamara Heiner included just the right amount of teenage romance. Heiner sets the hook early in her novel and holds the reader's attention until the last page. Revealing family dynamics and teenage angst, Heiner skillfully crafted her plot lines, then wove them together to form a first-rate mystery filled with intrigue and suspense.
The questions Heiner leaves unanswered are intriguing. Amazingly, Heiner leaves the reader wondering what exactly is Kylee's state of being. Leaving me waffling from ghost, dead, alive, runaway or murdered, Heiner enmeshed me in her characters and I became invested in their well-being.
Furthermore, Heiner skillfully developed her characters as they matured in the story. As a result, Pierce becomes a young man with likeable traits rather the shallow teenager portrayed in the beginning. The storyline's filled with action, suspense, and mystery as well as abuse, grief, and sadness.
Finally, in concluding my young adult mystery romance of Reaching Kylee, Heiner crafted well-developed characters and smooth steady pacing. In order to more fully appreciate and follow the story-line, the author advises reading the series in order. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
