Disappearing Act by Sid Fleischman, Chad Beckerman

An unseen man they call the Toad is stalking twelve-year-old Kevin and his older sister, Holly. They flee town in Holly's beat-up old car, driving west until they reach the Pacific Ocean. They change their names and attempt to hide in plain sight as street performers in Venice, California. But have they really eluded the Toad? Here is Newbery Medalist Sid Fleischman doing what he does best — spinning a tale with style.

I think this book had a lot of adventure, but the author could have put more detail into his descriptions of the characters. I enjoyed the plot, it gave great suspense to the reader. The author made a good point of explaining the Toad, though, which I liked a lot. It gave you a mystery of sorts to solve, with clues throughout the book. Overall, this book was a book I would recommend to people for an enjoyable read.
