What would you do if your dad got kidnapped? The book Missing by M. Sobel Spirn is about this boy named Sam who lies all the time. He lies to his teachers, parents, and friends. Also his parents are split up. One day when he was going to his dad¿s house, he saw two suspicious men come out of his house with his dad. So he tells his mom but since he lies so much his mom doesn¿t believe him. And the only person he can convince to believe him is his friend Josh. So they try and find his dad, but the closer they get to finding him the more dangerous things become. Will they give up? Or will they keep trying? Missing was a great book to read. When I was reading I felt like I was actually there. Once I started reading it I never wanted to put the book down. This novel was very exciting. I recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries and just wants a good, fun, exciting read.
