Book review: The Disappearance of Emily H., by Barrie Summy

Summy, Barrie. The Disappearance Of Emily H. Delacorte Press, 2015. $16.99. ISBN 978-0-385-73943-6. 244 p. Gr. 4 – 7. P7Q8

summy-disappearance-of-emily-hRaine has a rare and special gift.  When she touches an object she gets a glimpse of the past when that object was used.  Raine uses her gift to solve the mystery of Emily’s disappearance and as she does so she runs afoul of the three girl bullies who not only torment Raine, but bullied Emily as well.

Verdict: This book is a mild mystery and a mild action adventure.  It never quite becomes a page turner, but it is a solidly written novel that will keep an invested reader interested.
