|The Lost Ones|
Genre: thriller set in Vancouver
My review: Nora Watts is an interesting and unusual main character who gets our sympathy because of the violence in her background as a mixed race young woman who grew up in the foster care system.
She is asked to find Bonnie, the child she gave up for adoption fifteen years earlier, whom she thought she would never see again. The adoptive parents have approached her, asking for her help to locate the missing teen. Nora is reluctant at first, but many characters help her, many others get in her way. The plot is complex, as are the characters, and I got to see a side of Vancouver and British Columbia I never knew. The writing is fluid and well executed. Five stars. The Lost Ones was just awarded Best New Novel at the Macavity Awards
The call comes in just after five in the morning.
Everything is in order, which means that the girl is at least too smart to leave clues behind.
I received this book as an ARC from the publisher
Also, the 12th Annual Canadian Book Challenge by The Indextrious Reader.
