Haunting, beautiful Take 2
I agree totally with the reviewer above.
Also, I can't wait for the day when 'Teen Books' are not overlooked for being classified as 'Teen Books'

A missing child and the heartache and pursuit of the mother on the one hand,
along side Sophie and her Mother, a twosome, sequestered from the 'No Goods' on the other.

The reader is guided along from the beginning to suspect that the alternating voices in the story are the missing child and her Mother.
So the plot is presented straight away, but oh the marvelous characters and the poetic language
that delivers them to us are unforgettable.
