28. Raven Lucas Book 1: Missing by Christine Harris

Raven Lucas Book 1: Missing by Christine Harris
Published February 2012 Scholastic

From the publisher:

Raven Lucas appears to have everything. But something is missing from her life: her father. He has disappeared, suddenly, mysteriously, with no words of goodbye. Has he simply left his family and didn't have the courage to explain why? Is he dead, either by his own hand or another's? Has he been kidnapped? But why has there been no ransom demand? Raven is determined to find out what happened to him. Even if it kills her. And it just might.     

 Again, I am happy to see another mystery/thriller on the bookshelves.  The book starts of running, as Raven is following a strange man into a clothing store, for a reason that has yet to be explained, only to find it isn't the person she thought it was.  Her father, who has been missing for 3 days. 

From here the story twists and turns as Raven tries to figure out who she can trust .  While she sets out to track down the man she mistook as he father, she realised that she is also being followed.  Raven starts to find out about a side of her father she never knew existed.

I really liked this book, it was easy to read and fast paced.  In the back of my mind I knew this was only book 1, but as I was running out of pages I realised that I wasn't going to get any answers, only more questions, which is frustrating but alsot he sign of an engaging now I wait for Book 2!
