The Last Child
Good morning. It's cloudy and 20 degrees here in northern NH. I'm thinking it's going to be a perfect day for reading!
I LOVED this book! It is so well written with believable characters. Thirteen-year-old Johnny Merrimon's twin sister disappeared a year ago. Overcome with guilt because he hadn't picked her up at school like he was supposed to, their father abandons them. That leaves Johnny and his mom who is a wreck.
Johnny believes his sister is still alive so, with the help of his only friend, Jack, they embark on a mission to find her.
The Last Child is mysterious, and mystical, and human, and wonderful! I'll be looking for John Hart's other books, for sure.
Wishing you all reading weather!
