YA author Tara Altebrando offers a chilling mysterious tale about six kindergarten students who were kidnapped, missing without a trace for eleven years, and returned home as teenagers with no memories of the events. The intriguing story line of the stolen childhoods is shared from three unique perspectives. Scarlett and Lucas, two victims with procedural memories for daily activities, have no memories of their relationship with one another, what they have done, and where they have been, though curious flashbacks do start to occur. Avery is the sister of the one student who didn’t return and she is determined to solve the mystery of his absence. Creative formatting and choppy writing illustrates the gaps in memory and captures the confusion of life with amnesia, while the brief chapters make the bulky book a quick read for fans of mystery and suspense.
