Never Missing, Never Found

We rated this book:


In the thriller Never Missing, Never Found by Amanda Panitch, eight-year-old Scarlett is abducted and forced to serve the owner and the women that live there. She is found years later wandering the streets barefoot and dirty. After all these years, she struggles to fit back into the family she was kept from. Now grown, she takes a job at the local amusement park where she meets new people, but is still leery of getting too close. She meets Katharina who seems to say the right things to trigger past memories of a time she would rather forget. Does Katharina know about Scarlett’s past even though she tries to hide it? Or is the past coming back for an unwanted visit?

Never Missing, Never Found is a suspenseful thriller from beginning to end. Panitch does a fantastic job of weaving Scarlett’s two stories – her time in captivity and her present day life – in such a way that the story remains fluid as memories resurface and questions begin to be raised. The last few chapters will have you so hooked that you won’t want to put it down until the final page. A great young adult (age 15+) thriller that can’t be missed!
