Este libro fue un viaje al misterio, las mentiras, engaño y la manipulación que ciertas personas pueden utilizar para conseguir lo que quieres. Con una sinopsis que tiene mas cara de prologo nos vertimos en la vida de Zanny o Alexandra o Melissa una chica que pensaba conocer a la persona con la cual había convivido sus 16 años de vida, pero la verdad es otra, su padre realmente no es lo que ella pensaba. Muchas veces juzgamos por la primer la impresión, damos confianza por instinto, creemos en ...more

De vuelta en el terreno de la literatura juvenil, y de vuelta con una obra muy buena, ganadora del premio Ellis en Canadá. Una obra, sin embargo, a la que dos factores le impiden considerarse excelente: el primero, sin duda, el desarrollo inicial, un tanto lento. El segundo, solo en el caso de la versión en español, la mala traducción que nos regala Lina María Perez, a la que se le escapan gazapos del tamaño de «los Pescis» —alguien por piedad que le diga que, en español, los apellidos no se ...more

Un libro que leí para el colegio y que aunque al principio no me enganchara y no me interesara saber la verdad sobre el papá de Zanny, a medida que descubría pistas se iba poniendo más intenso. Zanny no es la mejor protagonista, se me hace muy plana al igual que su novio y su relación. Es un arma de doble filo que se descubra todo hasta las últimas páginas porque puede que te aburras de solas pistas al principio, pero es muy impactante el desarrollo al final. El mejor personaj

I really liked this book, Inaara was right I wasn't expecting the ending. Zanny's life had so many blanks in it that everything seemed to fit the bill until the ending when her uncle explained everything. I was extremely disappointed in Nick, kinda creepy that a 20 something year old guy was trying to get with a 16 year old even if it was for 10 million dollars ;)

Ik heb dit boek tussen mijn 13de en 16de een paar keer gelezen en vond het toen een ontzettend sterk en stoer verhaal. Het was geen goed idee om dit boek op mijn twintigste nog eens te lezen. Nu vond ik het verhaal haastig en door de beknoptheid ook niet erg spannend meer. Liever had ik geleefd met het idee dat dit het spannendste kinderboek ooit was. Er gáán immers mensen dood.

Even so a small paperback it was able to fit as much tension and surprise as a 300pg crime novel! I loved it simple but a awesome page turner

read this for school in grade 8. surprisingly good. i'm not usually not one for mystery but this one was just kind of like 'whoa.' a big shocker at the end, quite suspenseful.

Un libro lleno de misterios, con algunos giros interesantes en su trama. Es corto, perfecto para pasar una tarde leyéndolo.
