‘Sister, Missing’ is the sequel to ‘Girl, Missing’ by Sophie McKenzie.
So where do I start!? The dramatic storyline and the fact that you could quite easily compare the book to reality makes it almost impossible to put down.
However, I wasn’t as pleased with this sequel as I was with the previous book. I found that it sort of jumped right into the storyline without letting the reader figure out what might happen next, so it was quite predicting at some points. Also, the ending was very rushed and, personally, I think that the ending is one of the most important parts of a story and a rushed ending ruins a book – as does a rushed beginning.
I really thought that this book would be perfect to end the story of Lauren, and her non-stop, unordinary life. So I was quite disappointed when reading this book, as it didn’t appeal to me as much as I would have hoped. Furthermore, the use of language in this book was not as strong as it was in ‘Girl, Missing,’ and to find out right at the beginning of this story that Sam, (Lauren’s father) had passed away and her younger sister, Madison had gone missing without warning, was very disturbing.
In conclusion, I think Sophie McKenzie could have developed her sudden events in the story, this would have made the book more appealing to readers and would have had a clear ending to Lauren’s life. Overall, I still think the story went off track at some times but I hope you enjoy it and if you have a different opinion or view to this book, let me know in the comment box below!
