Verity Parkin

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.

Good book but….

The narrator was completely wrong, the voice did not fit the age of the main character which spoiled it.

Teaching Girl missing

Loved this book for myself but loved teaching it too. It had everything you want-great narration, interesting characters, twists and turns of plot, humour, tension, assessable language. The performance was excellent. I loved the tone of voice, the mood ws perfectly conveyed, pacing was perfect. Overall perfect

Totally unbelievable

Sorry to say I spent far too long giving this book a chance to improve. Completely unbelievable which makes it difficult to get involved with the story. Would not recommend.

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
