Good evening my lovely bloggers! Sorry for being away for a couple of days I have been extremely busy with an essay and a portfolio item but I am back just for a little while! So, today the question issss….day 18, a book that disappointed you. Another difficult question because disappointing can still mean that you overall you still enjoy the book. Therefore, for me a book that I enjoyed but at times found disappointing was Sister Missing by Sophie McKenzie,
Sister, Missing takes up the story of sixteen-year-old Lauren two years after the events of Girl, Missing. Life is not getting any easier in either her adoptive or birth families as exam pressure and a recent family tragedy take their toll. Lauren’s birth mother takes Lauren and her two sisters, Shelby and Madison, on holiday in the hope that some time together will help, but a few days into the holiday eight-year-old Madison is kidnapped while in Lauren’s care, under circumstances suspiciously similar to those in which Lauren was taken years before.The kidnapper demands a huge ransom for Madison’s safe return – and is threatening to kill her if the police become involved. Can Lauren save her sister, and stop the nightmare happening all over again?
So time to explain myself (as always.) The only reason this disappointed me was because I didn’t feel like that it stood up to the brilliance of the book girl missing. I felt that the story was also too similar, and although I understand it was an almost sequel I thought the stories were too close in terms of plot line and also that it was too expected and a point inevitable in terms of the first book. Overall I really enjoyed it however it didn’t stand up to the brilliance of the first book.
