Lauren has always known she was adopted but when a little research turns up the possibility that she was snatched from an American family as a baby, suddenly Lauren's life seems like a sham. How can she find her biological parents? And are her adoptive parents really responsible for kidnapping her? She manages to wangle a trip across the Atlantic where she runs away to try and find the truth. But the circumstances of her disappearance are murky and Lauren's kidnappers are still at large and willing to do anything to keep her silent…
Lauren Matthews was adopted when she was 3 years old and has recently been having strange dreams about what she thinks her birthmother looks like. Lauren becomes very eager to find out who her real mother is and leaves the country without her mother knowing. Once her mother finds out she is furious, but Lauren won’t stop and is going to try everything she can to know if the women in her dreams really exists.
One of the themes in this book is never give up even when things get difficult. For example about half way through the story Lauren has run out of money and has been left alone in the cold. She soon decides that she can’t give up that easily and finds her friend Jam.
Someone should read this book if they like a good adventure story. It is definitely a good read for the teen age group.
I rate this book a 5/5.
Gets straight into it
Really really great book
Girl, Missing is a decent book featuring Lauren. She's always known she was adopted, but when she tries to dig up details of her past she suddenly becomes suspicious. Something isn't right in her past, and to find her true family she has to go all the way to America and try to solve the mystery there. Tricking her adopted family and then sneaking away from them once on the other side of the Atlantic seems easy enough, but there's so much that can go wrong that she hadn't thought of. And then there's the problem of the people who took her away in the first place, who are still active and still dangerous ...
Suitable for 11+ and for people who enjoy mystery, adventure and finding your true place in the world.
Perfect for those who enjoy a fast paced adenture. It was almost like watching a TV detective show as Sophie discovered her missing identity and set off across the world to track down her mysterious family. Was she really a missing child, or had she imagined the connections between the scraps of paper she'd found?
I don't think you could read this book slowly! I just had to keep reading to discover Sophie's true identity.
