The Twisted Window by Lois Duncan
Tracy, a high school junior, becomes embroiled in the problems of a strange boy, who asks her assistance in “snatching” his half-sister from her father who has allegedly kidnapped her.
Shocker. Twisting. Didn’t see it coming. Yep, that about sums it up.
If you could see my tweets while I was reading this book you would see that at one point (well, more than one) I wanted to SLAP the tar out of Tracy. And I wasn’t too hooked on Brad either. I couldn’t really dredge up too much sympathy for either character. In fact, I started thinking I was a bad person because of that.
Well, Lois Duncan pulled a fast one on me that I didn’t see coming. I got my explanation about Brad’s actions and any animosity I had been feeling toward him…let’s just say it dissipated. (I’m trying to show off some of my vocabulary!)
I enjoyed this one and am looking forward to reading more of Lois Duncan’s books. I especially want to read the one based on her daughter’s death in 1989.
4 of 5 stars to this thriller for middle graders.
Day 2 of my Runner’s World Running Streak. 3 miles in 35 something-I’m just gonna round it up to 36 since I’m too tired to go get my garmin. 🙂
AND-we saw a rainbow at the end of our run! Didn’t have my phone with me(you know-I have a GARMIN FORERUNNER 10 now!!) so no picture of the majestic image it splayed across the sky.
Speaking of my GARMIN- I.LOVE.IT. I’ll try and take a picture of it in all its glory soon. Did I mention it’s pink???? And so simple to use!
My eyes are starting to droop, so I promise I will respond to all the comments on previous posts by tomorrow night.
One more thing-I’m currently reading The Twisted Window by Lois Duncan (how have I not read any of her books for middle grade/YA??). But there’s this problem I have. I think I’m supposed to dislike Brad because we know he is up to no good. However, I’m really disliking Tracy, the supposed good yet naive one. She’s acting like a TOTAL snot to her aunt and uncle who are taking care of her. It’s making me want to jackslap her. Wait, did I just say “jackslap”? Yep. And that’s what I want to do. She is so ungrateful!
Come here, Tracy.
Night everyone! 🙂
