As a librarian, the most-requested genre in my young adult collection is mystery. My patrons love it and can't get enough. So I jumped at the chance to read this one. Set in modern London, Rose's mother and stepfather disappeared without a trace five years ago. She hasn't been quite the same since, and she hasn't seen her beloved stepbrother Joshua in all of that time, either. Finally, finally, they're going to reunite, and maybe make some sense of what happened to their parents. But before that can happen, Rose witnesses the murder of two of her classmates. Rose and Joshua are likeable characters, prickly and guarded in some ways, but given their backstory, that's understandable. The mystery moves along quickly and is interspersed by Joshua's ardent search for anything involving their parents' disappearance. The only frustrating thing is that many questions are left unanswered. But as a series opener, that's to be expected. I will definitely be putting this on my teen shelves and I can't wait for the next installment!

Amber at Fall Into Books That's interesting! See I would have thought the Paranormal stuff would have gotten more requests. Good to know! :)
