About the book: This book contains much feelings and thoughts. It took some time before I started liking the book. The ten last pages where even really, really exiting and i couldn¿t stop reading for a second. ¨ Very easy red book with easy american-english. ¨ Written in first person view. ¨ Even if the book is a little hard to like in the beginning it is a pleasure from the first page. ¨ The book contains 190 pages. ¨ It is the first novel by Vendela Vida. ¨ The first book of three. ¨ Other books: Girls on the Verge. A gun is pointed at twenty-one-year old Ellis as she walks through a New York park in December the second. She has only lived in New York for 3 weeks. Although she manages to get away unharmed and without any injures she is left with psychologically reeling. Everyone she speaks to is worried about her ¿ and she leaves everyone with a big question mark. How is she feeling? Then Christmas comes and she travels back to San Francisco ¿ where her mum and dad lives. Before she goes to San Francisco she brakes up with her boyfriend. It is also where I started liking the book ¿ it¿s about page 70. After Christmas her mum is going to the Philippines for a salvation mission and Ellis accompanies her. Under this time Ellis finds that it¿s a life even after the park and the man. When she comes back to New York and her life she is starting to study again ¿ she wants to be a painter. Then she sees him ¿ the man in the park. He works at a hotel helping people to carry theirs bags. What shall she do now? She calls the police: ¿What can I do for you?¿ The police woman says. ¿I have a question, I say, had anything like what happened to me happened before,¿ ,¿to someone else?¿ ¿No,¿ The police woman says, ¿Your guy didn¿t do that to someone else. You where the first, or maybe the only one.¿ ¿But when I looked through pictures-¿ ¿Those where the mug shots we have of people who have committed all sorts of crimes. Drug dealing, auto theft, larceny.¿ ¿Thanks¿, I say. ¿No problem,¿ she says. You know where to find me if something comes up.¿ ¿Yup,¿ I say, and pause. ¿Anything else I can help you with?¿ ¿No,¿ I say, ¿Bye.¿ Then she meets a guy called G.P And she starts liking him and she tells it to him - that she know where to find the man in the park. The next morning the G.P and his friend stands in the hall with the man in the park. G.P has a gun in his hand. ¿Is it him?¿ G.P asks. ¿ If it is him he is a dead man!¿ ¿Well¿¿ I say. The man whispers: ¿ I¿m sorry¿ If G.P hears that he will kill the man. ¿No,¿ I lie, ¿ It is not him.¿ ¿Sure?¿ G.P says. ¿Yes.¿ Then they send the man away. This is the first book of three so after that you don¿t know what happens. The book ends while Ellis travels to her friend in Dublin. I will definitely read the second and the third book too!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
