She is Not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick

She Is Not InvisibleShe Is Not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Marcus Sedgwick is such a superb author when it comes to suspense! Laureth Peak and her brother fly from London to New York when Laureth believes her dad has gone missing (he is not answering her emails or phone calls)and she receives an email on her father's account (Laureth is his secretary) from someone who claims to have his black book in NY (he was in Switzerland). Since Laureth knows how important this book is to her writer father; she takes money and credit cards and her seven year old brother, Benjamin (and his raven, Stan) helps her navigate (she is blind since birth)taxis, airports, and hotels . What a creepy adventure they plunge into and with each step toward NY and her father---there is more of a concern that her father may have met with a mishap or something far worse...Sedgwick weaves an intricate tale from Laureth's POV - the reader feels her fear, anxiety and deep seated worry that her dad may have become overly obsessed with the current book he is writing. With each clue Laureth and Benjamin unearth in the black book, the mystery deepens and hurtles them(and us)along for a very twisted and satisfying read.
