Lauren is adopted and keen to know more about her mysterious past. But when she discovers that she may have been snatched from an American family as a baby, her life suddenly feels like a sham.

This is the best audio book I have ever listened to, this brilliantly narrated story tells a very gripping tale of a girl who was adopted when she was very young.

Having found a picture of a girl who look s like her on a mising children's site, she begins to question who knew about her adoption and whether she was snatched from her birth parents when she was a baby.

This leads her on a quest with her friend jam to find out more her life when she was younger.

There are many twists in this tale throughout the book.

I would not hesitate to reccomend this boook to anyone who enjoys an action packed book that relates to real life circumstances around the world. A BIG THUMBS UP!!!!!!

One of my Top 10 Audiobooks!

This is a fantastic book and it wont be long until your totally gripped by the story and can't stop listening. I started to listen to it at night time when I couldn't sleep, little did I know I would not sleep at all that night because I just wanted to keep listening. I couldn't stop it now, I had to find out what was happening...

It starts of fairly slowly but soon grabs you until you can't help yourself but stay and listen till the end. You will not be disappointed, its a great story and you'll find yourself willing the characters on (e.g to keep going, to be safe and so on). Some books have disappointing endings or you even feel like you have been left without the story being finished but not with this book as it ends well. You get to know everything you wanted and you end the story feeling like its complete.

Really impressed and its my first book by this Author. I also thought the narrator was good because as you know with an audiobook the narrator really makes a difference. The book is read clearly and you can also clearly tell which character is who, you sometimes find with narrators that it can get confusing if the story has a few characters but this narrator did such a fantastic job. By far one of the best I have come across, 10 out of 10!

I wont really say much about what the book is about as I don't want to spoil it for you but you get a good idea from the information given by Audible. This book is suitable from teenage and upwards, perfect for both teenagers and adults - neither will be disappointed.

Highly Recommended and this audiobook is definitely in my Top 10 audiobooks.

The most unbelievable, predictable book I’ve ever read or heard.

At first I thought I had missed a chapter as the story seemed to start with a jump into it with no build up. I even went back to check I hadn’t missed anything. Then the narrators voice for the teenagers really grated on me & I found it hard to visualise the characters. Everything that happened was so far fetched & unbelievable. Young teenagers travelling on planes & buses across USA, being saved in the snow - I won’t go on & spoil it for others. I struggled on with it hoping it would improved but it just flounced around with more unbelievable action. Not a patch on Sophie McKenzies’s other books which I have really enjoyed

A must read

It is a really good book to read and there is a bit of suspense near the end

Not quite credible

I had a problem with this audio book from the start, because the narrator had too 'adult' a voice for a story told from a young teenagers perspective. Although some parts showed the naïve thoughts and actions of a teenage girl, for large chunks I had to remind myself that the main characters were effectively just kids. This was partly due to the narrative and partly the narration, but overall undermined the credibility of the story to the extent that I found it difficult to suspend judgment.

good book. well worth a listen.

the story moves along at a good pace. the narrator is very believable as a stroppy teenager. I would definitely look for other titles by both the author and narrator.
