Year 2, Book 33

33. Vanishing Acts by Jodi Picoult
I did not like this book as much as I liked My Sister’s Keeper. This book is written in the same style, with the story being told from the perspective of many different characters. These are the only two books I’ve read by her, but I’m guessing this is pretty much the style she writes in. At any rate, this story is about a girl who finds out as an adult that her father kidnapped her away from her mother as a child and that she’s not really who she thought she was. Her father winds up going to prison and on trial for the kidnapping. I found a number of parts of the story very contrived and somewhat ridiculous, particularly the scenes of the father in prison. I only give it a 5 out of 10.

The Amish one “The Plain Truth” is pretty good. My least favorite is the one that is something Faith…
