Girl, Missing (Book Review)

Girl, Missing (Book Review)

Hey there people ^^

Today I am going to review a whole series again. I
actually just finished reading the third and final book in the trilogy, but I’m
reviewing from the first. Otherwise, what sense would it make to you? The first
book in the series is called Girl, Missing by Sophie McKenzie. And then it goes
Sister, Missing as the second book, and the one I just finished called Missing
Me. It’s a chick-lit type of story with action in it too.

The first book starts by following a 14 year old Lauren
who is an adopted child. When she happens to go searching a missing child website,
she sees a child called Martha Lauren Purditt who went missing two months
before she herself was adopted. Curious to know more she embarks on a trip to
discover who her biological parents are. Along the way she realizes her
situation is a lot deeper and complicated than it looks at first glance because
of some trouble she encounters. Lauren is also accompanied by her long standing
best friend Jam, who she knows since forever. The series continues to
follow Lauren as she grows up, and switches to the point of view of another
major character for the last in the series, Missing Me.

The final book, in my opinion is nowhere near as good as
the rest. Personally the main character (not Lauren in this case) annoyed me a bit, and the only one I
really liked the story was because of a character called Wolf. He seemed so realistic, passionate and calm,
I could really relate to how much I would love a friend like that. The second
book was definitely the best out of them all, and the first was good too. But this
is only my opinion ^^

Lauren is a strong-willed girl, who is independent to
everyone else. Of course, at time she needs a shoulder to lean 
on like anyone
else, but she will always try it on her own at first. This is what drew me so
much to her as a character. Lauren’s ability to try and attain anything, no
matter what is in the way, is outstanding. It was a pleasure to read from her
perspective and travel along the story with her.

What I liked so much about this series was how it heavily
weighed on family in such an exciting way. It deals with many concepts, such as
family problems, as well as being adopted or other forms of birth where you
end up living with parents who aren’t yours biologically. It also managed to
capture enough action and a bit of romance in there too to satisfy me. It has a
bit of everything, and it was fun to read. I would definitely rate the whole series a four out of five for me
😀

Olivia’s Question: If you could only remember one thing
about your parents for the rest of your life, what would you choose to
remember?
