Student Blogger Samantha H. Reviews THE YEAR WE DISAPPEARED November 24, 2013

Life in Falmouth, Massachusetts was perfect for the Busby family. In a town where everybody knows everybody, within a day everyone can be caught up on the latest gossip. The Busby’s were an average family, until their father was targeted and almost killed. Almost overnight their life changed forever, all with one shot. The only thing left they could do was disappear.

I liked The Year We Disappeared by Cylin Busby & John Busby a lot. There were two different authors, and every chapter had a different point of view, making the book easier and faster to read. I would recommend this book to anyone that likes nonfiction books that tell a story of someone’s life or a mystery type of book. If you liked Warriors Don’t Cry , then you would like The Year We Disappeared
