Shift by Jennifer Bradbury
Review by Tiffany, Librarian, Rincon Valley & Sebastopol
Christopher and his best friend, Win, decide to take a bike trip across the country the summer after they graduate high school. They are on the open road for several weeks when Win disappears. Christopher is angry and confused but goes home to start his freshman year in college. He is at college for a couple of weeks when he discovers that Win's parents are so desperate to find him that they send a FBI agent to question Christopher. Christopher decides its time to find out what happened to Win or his family will pay the consequences for Win's disappearance.
Why I picked it up: When it first came out I read several good reviews about it. One day I found myself without a book and decided to browse the shelves. I was in a mood for a fast paced, good mystery and that is what I found.
Why I finished it: The book started off good, right away I wanted to know what happened on the cross-country bike trip and Win. The chapters switch from past to present, which kept me hooked.
I'd give it to: Anyone who enjoys a fast paced mystery book, with a little bit of adventure.
