Have you ever imagine how you would feel if you lost a brother?
In this case, Michaela loves the ocean but loves her beloved bother Red even more, but one day Red disappeared on the cost of Cape Cod. Mike short for Michaela struggles with lost of his brother Red. The theme of the story deathful involves a very deep sadness. It is an ocean of pain because he died in the ocean. The reason he die was because he made a bit with his two friends and her sister that he would swim to the buoy and back, half way back he vanished. Grief is also one of the themes of the stories. Michaela grief's by sharing the life she and her bother once shared. I recommended this book because it shares sadness, grief and courage. We can also compared our lives with the situation that Mike went through because somewhere in our life's we at least have someone that we appreciate and still love no matter if it's a brother fiend or part of our family or hearts. The author Angela Johnson did a good job. The writer made us think of questions regarding Mike situation. For example, how long did it take Mike to over heal with death of her bother because some us made take us weeks or months. This story brings tears to your eyes. This also helps you how Mike try to move on with her life with Red because everywhere that Red went she was always with him and Red did not mind taking her. This can help you remember the good times you had with the beloved person.

The book over all is outstanding
Looking For Red Have you ever wondered what how your life would be without your brother? Well that is exactly what happened to the main character in this book. A 13 year old, girl named Michelle is that the main character is in this book. She lost her brother named Red. In the book she as well as red girlfriend and best friend have to learn how to get over him. The book¿s content is overall an easy to read book that is appropriate for the ages 11-14. Since some of the words in the book are not the language younger kids can listen to. The author does a great job in explaining the emotion of the characters according to how they are feeling about a certain issue that is going on. Through out the book some people have flash backs. For example, Michelle has a flashback on how Red used to stand near on the post located in the front of the house and smoke while watching the smoke blow through his face. The book is full of exciting moments to remember Red. There is another interesting flashback that is important. Red¿s best friend drives into the restaurant where Red used to eat his clams and lemon. Some people say that the reason that he did that was to commit suicide and go with Red.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Searching for Life
Looking For Red is just that. A young girl growing up on the Cape looks for her brother after he doesn't come home one day. This book is interesting for adults and teens alike. It keeps you guessing until the very end. Angela Johnson writes in a way that is realistic. Her thoughts jump around on paper just as one's would in their head. This book would be best read for pleasure. Although this book is very well written there are uses of mildly foul language.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
