This is way different from my life because I was never abducted. My feeling when I read the book was curious, sad and mad at times.


The book wasn't confusing, It wasn't easy nor hard. The story was believable. I didn't really liked the ending but it does leave you surprise. My favorite part was when Ethan and Camie start to go out. I like that Lisa Mcmann leaves you with surprises and makes you be curios. I would recommend this book to people that like to keep on reading when you are curios and like to predict what well happen. I would give the book a 9.5 because I liked that the author made you curios and also I liked how in the end she leaves you with a BIG SURPRISE.
