    his most powerful and intricately-plotted novel yet. Thirteen year-old Johnny Merrimon had the perfect life: happy parents and a twin sister that meant the world to him. But Alyssa went missing a year ago, stolen off the side of a lonely street with only one witness to the crime. His family shattered, his sister presumed dead, Johnny risks everything to explore the dark side of his hometown in a last, desperate search.

    Christine says: "Stick With It!"
    "Terrific, well written story with awful narration."
    Overall

    The story is fascinating to me, and the characters well drawn. I have a long commute, and find myself hurrying to get in the car to be on my way so I can continue to listen. The story is so good that it almost manages to overcome the bizarre narration. The narrator pronounces "the" as "thee", "a" as "ae", and doesn't elide the words in a sentence. He pronounces every word, every final consonant clearly and distinctly, even when it isn't natural to do so. It's sure not a Carolina accent, but it is so distracting I'm considering buying the paper edition so I don't have to hear it anymore.
