Twice Taken by Susan Beth Pfeffer

A story of breaking apart & coming together with a clarity that appeals to readers of all ages. Winner of many awards, including ALA Best Book for Young Adults.

But who is she? Brooke or Amy? Shes been living with her father & now learns hes taken her illegally. Whom do you love when everyone says they love you? How can anyone know which parent loves you most?

I love this book, and have read it twice. I had my mom read it and she liked it. I love the way that the author made the characters come alive, and the author made me feel like I was actually in the book. The language is really extreme but it's part of what makes the characters come alive. One reason that I read the book the first time was because one of my friends read this book (in our freshmen year), and she loved it and recommended it to me and I loved it. I would recommend this book to everyone and anyone, but mostly to those people who love mysteries.

Ok, the story was excellent, but I did not appreciate the bad language. What's up with that? I mean you could take it all out and you would still understand that everyone is angry. I bought this book not knowing what kind of words would be used in it, so for everyone else, here is your warning.

I loved this book it is great. I read it in like a day because I couldn't put it down. Plus it had a lot of good information in it and good special effects. I read it last year actually and I took an AR test on it because we had to take a mentoring class and read AR books and take tests. I got a 100% on the test but it is a great book.

I read this book when a friend referred it to me and it was great. It kept me in suspense. I could not put the book down it was so good. I read it in a half an hour because I just could not put it down. I recommend this book to everyone who likes these kind of books. I really mean it once you start you can't put it down. That is all I have to say for now bye.

I loved this book, it was very well written. That is probably how a 16 year old girl would handle that situation, probably more tears, but very well written anyhow. I think you shoudl read this book no matter what but especially if you feel you are beginning to take your family for granted.
