Today’s book review comes from Karen, she blogs at http://mytrainofthoughtson.wordpress.com
Karen chose to read and review Disappearing In Plain Sight by Francis Guenette
The book introduces you to Lisa-Marie, a teenager whose grandmother sends her to her aunt Bethany at Crater Lake for the summer. The little community around Izzy – trauma counsellor at Camp Micah – in the cabins by the lake also welcomes another summer guest. I will not tell you more about the story than shown in the Goodreads plot description. This would spoil the fun of reading this book yourself.
With Disappearing in Plain Sight, Francis Guenette has created a story that doesn’t let you off the hook The reader gets to know the community members pretty soon. The characters, their ways of dealing with stuff, their feelings, and the events are very real. You may often think differently, however you know that there are persons in your life who act and feel like the characters in question. The characters and locations are fittingly described; you feel Francis’ love for characters and site. Disappearing in Plain Sight gets you hooked – even if it is not your typical genre. I was drawn into the story right away. I felt close to Lisa-Marie, like being an invisible part of the community. Disappearing in Plain Sight is a great read for contemporary fiction fans, readers who like to uncover the inner demons, and self-awareness.
This is a book to read again.
