Overview

"We were working on a project together. But she didn't get a lot done, probably because her mother is so sick. I could have been nice about it, but I wasn't." Nick looked at me strangely. I couldn't make myself meet his eyes. "That same day, she took off."

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6–10—Though this mystery has some clunky writing, the characters are engaging. When Trisha, Robyn's weird history project partner disappears, the 15-year-old worries that she's responsible because she said some mean things to the unpopular girl. Robyn's father, the owner of a private security company and an ex-cop, is an old acquaintance of Trisha's stepfather. After he takes the case, Robyn gets involved in finding the missing teen. The fact that Robyn's boyfriend, Nick, is finishing a sentence in a group home and knows some of the same tough characters as Trisha helps the investigation. A suspicious fire at a horse stable and an insurance fraud cover-up add to the suspense. Along the way the teen sleuth faces some setbacks: Nick is being abused by his aunt's boyfriend, Robyn has to convince Trisha's protective friends to let her deliver a message to the runaway from her sick mother, and then Robyn's father is beaten. Stereotypes about appearances prevail. Despite the flaws, the fast pace and good girl/not-so-bad-boy relationship dynamic make this novel a strong pick for reluctant readers.—Tina Zubak, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA
Children's Literature - Sally S. Hoffman
Young females have a new sleuth to follow on modern day adventures. Award winning author Norah McClintock brings readers the second book in the "Robyn Hunter" series. Robyn Hunter is on all accounts a typical high school student. She juggles friend drama, boyfriend aloofness, divorced parents, and too much homework. However, when classmate Trisha Hanover disappears after an argument with Robyn, she cannot help but feel responsible despite Trisha's apathetic attitude. Trisha is a loner with a long history of running away. Her disappearance goes practically ignored by everyone except her parents and of course Robyn. The harder she tries to find Trisha the more she is led down a dangerous path where two seemingly separate events become entangled. Readers will be drawn into this fast paced story with characters that are not only relatable, but genuinely likable. Girls will particularly enjoy following Robyn as she unravels the mystery while finding out more about herself and the world around her. The story is written through the eyes of a sixteen year old, but will be enjoyed most by middle school readers. Reviewer: Sally S. Hoffman
