Genre: Mystery/ Suspense
Yet another book by April Henry. Sorry guys! One problem I have is, if I find a good author and enjoy their books a lot, then I start reading each and every book of theirs till I am done. This is the last book of April Henry I read, so don’t worry… I am not going to write any more summaries of books by her 🙂
What do you think you would do if you woke up from being unconscious and realized that you didn’t know where you were, how you got there or even who you were. You were only certain of one thing: the two men with you want you dead. You would probably do what Candance (Cady) Scott did; you would fight for your life.
When one of the men leaves the other man in charge of killing her, Cady does what she has to do to save herself. She arms herself with a rock, and when the opportunity presents itself, she uses the rock to hit the man in the head. She is also well-versed in self-defense, so she is able to subdue her would-be killer and knock him unconscious. When he is out cold, she steals his cell phone and his vehicle and drives away.
Not knowing who she is, where she is or how she got there narrowed her options considerably. Cady finds a place called Newberry Ranch, whose Security Department was staffed with a guard 24 hours a day. When she stops there to ask for help, instead of being safe, she finds herself locked in the back seat of a patrol car. The policeman thought she was an escapee from a local mental hospital.
After she managed to get away from him, Cady flees to Bend, where she finds a McDonald’s restaurant and Ty, a kid who’s willing to help her out, even though she can’t give him a good reason to. The pair set off on a quest to not only figure out who she is, but to also figure out who those men who want to kill her are and why they want her dead.
When you find out who Cady really is and why she was kidnapped and why she never remembered anything, it is going to shock you! So be ready! This is a fast-paced novel with lots of action. It’s well-written in terms of keeping the action flowing and making the reader want to keep turning pages in order to find out what happens next. Lots of road blocks are thrown in Cady’s path on her way to figuring out who’s who and what’s what, which makes the book all the more interesting!
