The Night She Disappeared
By April Henry
The Night She Disappeared is a frightening book because it is so true to life. It is not unusual to see stories broadcasted on the news of people who have gone missing. This fiction book is much like one of those news stories.
A pizza delivery girl named Kayla goes missing on a routine delivery. Other than the captor, no one knows where she is or what has happened to her. Two of Kayla’s coworkers, Drew and Gabie, who feel they are inadvertently responsible for her disappearance begin to piece together clues. As the two grapple with fear and guilt, they race against time trying to figure out what has happened to Kayla and who is responsible for her disappearance. This book will not only grab your attention, it will keep it until the last page.
I love working in the middle school library because each day I get to work with wonderful students. In addition, I have access to lots of interesting books. It is always fun to help students connect to books they like, and to talk about what they are reading.
