The book I selected to review this month is titled Favorite, by Karen McQuestion. I really enjoyed this part mystery, part thriller book. The main character of the book is Angie Favorite, a 16 year girl who lives with her brother Jason and grandmother. Her father travels around the country following his music career. When Angie was 11, her mother disappeared on Angie's birthday, never to be seen again. The police had no clues, only an empty car. Angie is attacked in a parking lot by Scott Bittner, who is trying to tell her something very important. He is arrested and kills himself in jail. His mother tries to become Angie's friend to apologize for the attack. She is an old woman, who lives in a castle with her help. As it turns out Angie and her brother become prisoners of Scott Bittner's mother. There are many secrets in the Bittner castle and some are very important to the Favorite family. Will they escape? I would recommend reading this book to find out.
