Have you ever watched the movie "Abduction" staring Taylor Lautner? Well this book is just like that movie but it actually puts a modern twist to it. Although this book is a fictional book, the way the author tells it makes it so much more realistic. This book is full of deception and lies that it makes this book interesting.

This book is about a kid named Adam Farmer who has been drugged into finding out more information about his family, mainly his father. As Adam is induced in the drug, someone interrogates him but instead of the normal painful integration, he is brought back to the past to relive what has happened. This is to bring out the things that Adam has forgotten. As the plot thickens, he learns more and more about his family like how he has no relatives – a lie. As the story progresses, the interrogator asks about certain events while guiding with key words and scenes. The more Adam remembers the more and more he gets inquisitive.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes reading mysteries. Although this does not seem like a mystery, the story within itself is one. When a friend suggested this book to me, I thought it would have been boring but as I read on, this book really did catch my attention. I would give this book 3.5 out of 5 stars.
