My Daughter had to read this book for a project at school called Reading Games. It was fun filled book. Kept her attention and is fast paced. Recommended for kids in 3rd though 5th grade. :)
I read this book over twenty years ago. When I saw that Lifetime is having a movie following this book in January I thought I better read it again. So i chose to get it on Audio and listen to it. Keep in mind this book was written in the seventies. It was a nice change after reading The Hunger Games, Divergent, Shatter Me etc. It takes me back to the ground of writting! This story line is quiet the story for the seventies and must have turned some heads and reviews back in the day. I enjoyed it even more the second time around. I couldn't believe how much of it I have forgotten. Recommended book.
I wouldn't say the plot keeps you on the edge of you seat, but you are drawn to want to keep going in the aspect that you want to know what happens to these kids and you are overwhelmed wondering how the adults could do the things they have done. It's a page turner!
