i read this book over and over again. this is one of those books that catches your eye, and you can't put down. i think Caroline really made this story to where anyone could imagine themselves in it, and that made it a better book. i enjoy reading mystery books, espepcially ones like this, where something new happens around every corner. i had a hard time putting the book down. i would recommend this book to anyone who likes mystery's and would enjoy a good read. although, this story has cliff hangers, i never left off at one, i kept going. it didn't take me long to read it, because i never stopped reading. this is a very suspenssful book, about a girl who finds out her dad has been murdered. a man, called her pretending to be her dad telling her what to do and what to take when she left. turns out, her dad had something that the man had wanted for years. Not to mention, the murderer actually tells police that the daughter, Alice, killed her own father. buy the book now, to find out what happens to Alice while she is trying to out race her dad's murderer.

Wanted! Caroline Cooney Young Alice could not believe how much her world had changed. She started the day at her divorced father’s house. She was doing the normal teenage thing of painting her nails. But with a phone call her world changed dramatically. She is alone, with no one she knows to turn to, and she is wanted by the police. This book is a thrilling story, with many twists and turns, and an unexpected ending. Cooney has created another master piece.

On the run Riley S 2/20/13 Wanted by Caroline B. Cooney Wanted is a very good, suspenseful book .It’s about a young girl who loses her father and is on a search for his killer. The entire time I was reading it I was about to jump off of my seat. I would suggest this book to anyone who likes mystery stories or murder stories. Caroline B. Cooney has a way of making the book suspenseful as the main character runs away from her father’s death throughout the book. She really hooks the reader with her realistic plot throughout the book. She also has some other similar stories that creepily hook the reader’s attention throughout the book like “The Stranger”, “Thirteen” and “The vampires promise”. She is a very well-known author. This book was published by scholastic INC and can be bought for $7.99 at Barnes and Noble. The main character of the book is a sophomore in high school named Alice. One day, she was painting her nails and her dad called and told her to get the secret “twin” file out of his desk and drive his beloved Corvette to her favorite ice-cream parlor to meet him .Then an intruder broke into the house and Alice hid and over heard him saying “I killed him good”(180). She then left and went to the ice-cream parlor and ate some ice-cream, but he never showed. She called her mom and her mom said she received an email Alice hadn’t really sent saying she killed her dad by accident when she really didn’t. She drove the corvette to the mall then hitchhiked to an elementary school then hitchhiked to a college and did some research on the “twin file” and she realized what he was killed over. She kept running from all her family, friends, and cops. Then she finds out who took her father away from her. You would never guess. This is a very fast paced book; a lot can happen over two pages. For example on pages (11-13) someone broke into her house and killed her dad. The setting changed a million times throughout the book. There are also many side characters throughout the book like police men and college students she met. Even her dad’s old friend was mentioned. Some of the symbols in the book were that during the whole book Alice knew her father’s killer and had always disliked him .Another Symbol in this book is that Her father told her to drive his beloved corvette to the ice-cream parlor and no one but him had ever driven it he was very protective of it. Alice doesn’t even have her permit yet he let her drive it with no hesitation. This is an excellent murder story. I would definitely suggest it to anyone who likes mystery stories. My favorite thing about this book is how the author keeps you on your toes with the suspenseful things that happen in the book. In the end when she found out who the killer was gave me chill bumps. I loved the suspenseful ending of the book. Overall it was a great book.

January 9, 2013 Searching Cory Capell Wanted Caroline B. Cooney Teenagers and young people tend to turn to high conflict books because they hook the reader and keep it interesting. Books with high conflict challenge your imagination throughout the book. In Wanted a very suspenseful, high conflict murder story. Caroline B. Cooney shows how murder can become a huge influence and challenge on a teenager’s life. At age 65 Cooney has written over 90 suspense, mystery, and romance novels for young people and teenagers. In this book Cooney shows her skill by the way she wrote this very suspenseful mystery. Cooney really draws you into the book within the first few pages. The challenges that the book brings to the main character Alice won’t let you put the book down. The main character of the book is Alice. She is a young teenager without her license. Her world gets turned upside down with a panicked call from her father. She can tell something is wrong with her father, and feels almost like someone is listing to their conversation. Alice’s father tells her to grab two disks named “Twin” out of his desk and drive to her favorite ice cream place out in the country. Then the call was over. Alice was shocked because she didn’t even have her license and why would her dad be so panicked, was he in trouble? Throughout the book Alice faces several challenges. Never in her life has she been in a situation like this. Later in the book she is accused of murdering her father. She was flabbergasted and terrified, “Alice had to wait until her heart had stopped jumping around before she could move, because sitting still was too scary” (79). Alice was on the run. She was wanted by the police and she was driving without a license. To top it off she was in a bright red corvette so everyone noticed the car and she couldn’t drive well so she couldn’t go undetected.  In the book she is faced with many mental and physical challenges. Often she would break down and cry. Alice didn’t have a good place to sleep and not a lot to eat. So this young girl had it tough. Will she make it? If you want to know you should read this book. I’m not the reading type but I would recommend it to all my friends. This book was very interesting and I don’t even like to read but at times I didn’t even want to put this suspenseful book down.
