The Taking by Kimberly Derting

Such a beautiful Cover! Look at the cute details! 

A flash of white light . . . and then . . . nothing.

When sixteen-year-old Kyra Agnew wakes up behind a Dumpster at the Gas ’n’ Sip, she has no memory of how she got there. With a terrible headache and a major case of déjà vu, she heads home only to discover that five years have passed . . . yet she hasn’t aged a day.

Everything else about Kyra’s old life is different. Her parents are divorced, her boyfriend, Austin, is in college and dating her best friend, and her dad has changed from an uptight neat-freak to a drunken conspiracy theorist who blames her five-year disappearance on little green men.

Confused and lost, Kyra isn’t sure how to move forward unless she uncovers the truth. With Austin gone, she turns to Tyler, Austin’s annoying kid brother, who is now seventeen and who she has a sudden undeniable attraction to. As Tyler and Kyra retrace her steps from the fateful night of her disappearance, they discover strange phenomena that no one can explain, and they begin to wonder if Kyra’s father is not as crazy as he seems. There are others like her who have been taken . . . and returned. Kyra races to find an explanation and reclaim the life she once had, but what if the life she wants back is not her own?

  1. Hi Danny! Interesting book… although, I don’t really read sci-fi stories, which I’m guessing this book is, it has an interesting premise and I’d like to think readers would enjoy going through the journey with Kyra as she searches for what had really happened to her.

    Because of this review, I now have 197 books on my to-read list on Goodreads 😉 I should do something to celebrate 200 when I get to it, probably soon with all the book blogs I’m now following……

  3. Sign me up for this one too Danny! Can’t wait. I love stories like there where we’re just not sure what’s happened to the protagonist or what’s going on, it’s the good kind of confusion that has me coming up with one theory after another! Plus, love that cover, I wonder if dragonflies (or birds? it’s hard to tell) are a clue:)
