Read in January, 2012

This book was about a young man originally from China named Xing or Kris(his American name) In the town of Ashland, New York teenage boys start to disapear. After the disaperance of one teen, Kris gets the lead role in the musical where he is destined to be, having an angelic voice. Kris faces the troubles of bullies, friends and family but he finds that he ends up facing more than expected when he seems to learn the truth.

At the begining, I couldn't put the book down. I loved the mystery to the story and trying to figure out who this man in the red jacket was. It was a pretty fast read for me, but I think this book would be better for a teenage boy. As an eighteen year old girl, I felt like I really couldn't relate to Xing as well. I gave the book 2 stars because it was good all the way up to the end. With the unexpected ending, I felt like I was left to imagine what ended up happening to Xing and his family. If you are someone who loves that then this book is perfect, but for those like me who want an ending-happy or sad-the book will not be your cup of tea. Fukuda did well in his writting and story telling, but the ending just really made me angry
