Today I have a Review and Giveaway Rock Harbor Lost & Found by Colleen Coble.
This is a book specifically written for teens and tweens. The main character is a girl, so maybe it’s especially for girls, but I know a lot of boys would enjoy reading it as well.
It’s the second in the Rock Harbor series, but it isn’t necessary to read the first book in order to enjoy this one. It isn’t a continuation of the story. (To see my first review, see here.)
Some features I enjoyed about the book were the focus on search and rescue, using dogs. There was also a cyber crime, which was interesting. And I love how the main character turns to God and to prayer to get her through the hard things she’s dealing with.
A couple of other issues are pretty deep, so I would caution parents about making sure your kids are able to handle the subject matter. (I wouldn’t have my 10-year-old daughter read it for a year or two.) One is the issue of adoption, but the illegal form–“selling” the baby. Second, an adult is kidnapped and is gone for a week and no one knows what has happened to her. Third, a girl’s mom had been imprisoned for injuring her son (the mom’s son). She is now back in town and is stalking the girl, her daughter. So, just make sure these things aren’t too scary for your kids!
