I think this book is a wonderful suspenseful novel! It's about two teenage boys who go on a camping trip, but it ends up being much more than that. This book was clearly written for entertainment purposes. It was probably directed towards middle school readers. This book was wonderful and I highly recommend it!
Lois Duncan is an amazing author! She started writing at age 13 and has never stopped. She has written many successful books such as Summer of Fear and I Know What You Did Last Summer. I am judging this book entirely off of entertainment reasons. That is because I feel that this is the reason this book was written.
The plot of this book is about how a kid who gets into some trouble solves his problems in the wrong way! He does this just so that he doesn't have to face what's going on. It also tells of all the lives he changed in between. This story is set in the Gila Wilderness in New Mexico. The story ends in California.
Overall I think this is a wonderful book full of suspense. It has a surprising twist at the end that makes you want to read more. Lois Duncan is an amazing author! I've loved all the books of hers that I have read. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves suspense and mystery!

This book was on over-all okay book, because the first part of it was very boring. As it goes on though, it gets a little bit better. These two boys go on a camping trip and never come home. The parents and the kids at school are very worried about them and think they are dead. Until one day a mysterious phone call comes in from a guy, and from there it all goes down-hill. This book is a very mysterious book, and it seems to keep you on your toes. The characters are very well introduced too. You can understand what is happening in this book. They Never Came Home could've been better but it was okay the way it is.

    An Okay Book

    This book was really interesting at the begining but towards the end it got boring. The ending seemed like she was running out of time in writing it and just cut it off where she was. Over all the book was pretty good, just had a bad conclusion.
