T and Aloka because this book has alot of action in it and they like action books.
Honestly, when I first saw it, the sci-fi aspect went completely in over my head. The clues lead him to the lonely Rachel, who has problems of her own, including parents who compare her unfavourably to her long-dead sister. Then a while ago I received a copy through the post along with a copy of the newly released sequel, Blood Ransom, giving me the rare opportunity to read a book and its sequel back-to-back. Sometimes the characters dont really think, But i loved the book anyway. Also Theo always says 'Man,' as an exclamation in the narration. The plan is to get Max to hack into her dad's email account and see if he sent any interesting emails lately.
I was glad that Rachel finally got some backbone in this book and did some ass-kicking for herself. Since I wrote a book review for the first book in this series, I thought I should probably write one for this! At school, Rachel is confronted by the school bullies, Jemima, Phoebe and Amy, who demand to know what relation she has to Theo. He had, like, a bedsit in our house — with his own kitchen area and bathroom. They find themselves the target of an evil group of people, so of course, like any sane person; they run away! I didn't put it down until it was finished and nearly cried when it was over. Rachel receives a weird text from her father.
Meanwhile, Rachel Smith is annoyed with her parents for constantly comparing her to her dead sister, Rebecca, who was a star student and daughter.

The science stuff surrounding Elijah and his work is incredibly current and totally believable. Theo is determined to find him, and his search leads him to Rachel, together they try to solve the mystery surrounding their births and the clinic their parents worked at, but what they find completely blows their lives apart.
I really enjoyed reading Girl, Missing, and after reading this, I felt that this book was a bit of a let down.

Both he and Rachel have no idea what Elijah is planning. He came across like a complete idiot.
But now I was tall enough and strong enough to overcome any physical obstacle. The pace of the story then ratchets up a few gears as the story sees the pair pursued by enemies on all sides, not knowing who they should trust. I found the story line intriguing and fascinating. Those of you who have read a few more of my reviews have probably picked up on the fact that I loathe weak girls who go running to the strong boy in bad situations.

Quite a thrilling book, though Rachel's character initially irritated me, thank goodness the character grew strong and dependent!
