The Taking - Kimberly Derting

The idea behind this story
has potential
to be great.

Kyra and her dad
are driving home from her softball game.
They're talking about college
and they disagree.
Kyra gets out of the car,
to protest.
Suddenly she sees a white light
and hear her dad scream.

She wakes up behind a dumpster
still wearing the clothes from the day before.
She heads home,
but it's not her home.
It would seem,
she's been gone for 5 years.

A lot happened in 5 years.
Her father,
who saw the light,
is believed to be crazy.
Her parents divorced
and her mum not only remarried,
but also has a new child.
Her best friend is now dating her boyfriend.
And her boyfriend's 12 year old brother,
is now 17 and gorgeous.

But here's the thing,
Kyra doesn't seem to interested
in learning what happened to her.
Whether she remembers the light 
or not,
she doesn't support her father.
She's upset over,
rightly so,
about "the husband" and "brother"
but never really deals with it.
And when things do start getting interesting,
it ends.
Granted,
you'll probably learn more in the next book,
but do you really want to wait?
And do you really care?
