The Sleepover

We rated this book:


A spine-tingling, electrifying story about a boy’s sudden and mysterious disappearance and the impact it has on the mother. Isobel, the mother, is very protective of Nick, and after he was beaten by bullies and hospitalized from the injuries she moves him into a new school. At this school, Nick joins a book club where he meets Samir, Adrian, and Jason. They become his closest friends, but after he is invited to a sleepover at Adrian’s and is nowhere to be found in the morning, everyone is panicked and agitated. With many twists and turns and dead-ends, this book takes its readers, on the frantic journey of the mother as she searches for her son and the person behind his disappearance.

From the beginning, we knew that Isobel was a caring and protective mother, but throughout the story, we are assured again and again through the thorough characterization. Through her lack of sleep and constant state of angst, the reader is able to see just how deep Isobel’s care is for her son, and how grave the effects of his disappearance are. I eagerly recommend this book to anyone aged thirteen and up who loves suspenseful novels. This book has you on the edge of your seat throughout. This was a great and well-written story, but it may be too intense for some readers.
