Five years have passed since sixteen-year-old Angie Favorite’s mother disappeared without a trace. Since that day, Angie has managed to go through the motions of everyday life—until the summer morning when she’s abducted from a mall parking lot. Angie narrowly escapes, and her attacker is arrested, but he takes his life in jail before he can offer an explanation for his crime. When his mother contacts Angie, begging forgiveness on her son’s behalf, the girl agrees to meet with her in hopes of finding answers to the seemingly random attack. But when she arrives at the family’s massive estate, she is overcome by an unshakeable sense of foreboding...

Part thriller, part coming-of-age tale, Favorite is an engrossing young adult novel in which nothing—and no one—is as it seems.


I got this book through Kindle Unlimited. 

I needed something easy that would hold my attention and this did the trick.  Angie is missing her mom and her disappearance haunts her.  When someone grabs her in the parking lot she fears she will disappear just like her mother.  

The narrator did a good job with this book really putting you into the story.  I felt as if I were actually reading it myself instead of listening to it.  This is a fun, quick read with a little bit of thriller and a little bit of coming of age.  Since this is a YA book gear toward the younger ages of this subset I will say that I thought it provided just the right amount of scare without it being overwhelming.  I liked the twist at the end and was actually pleasantly surprised by the character's decision on her budding feeling toward one of the other characters.  I really enjoyed this book.
