The Lucky One: A Novel
Alice is The Lucky One. At the age of three, she was kidnapped, but her father was able to track her down within a couple of hours. Years later, Alice is volunteering for a website that tries to help find missing people. One day a picture pops up, and she recognizes the man who kidnapped her. She can’t help but follow this trail wherever it goes. In the end, Alice has to accept that we all tell lies to ourselves and that sometimes the truth is harder to believe.
I have read a couple of Lori Rader-Day’s books, and I usually enjoy them more. This one wasn’t my favorite. The storyline sounded very intriguing, but I think it was a bit oversimplified. Right off the bat, it was fairly obvious what was really going on. The only real mystery was what was happening behind the scenes that led to all this. The storytelling itself was okay, but again it was not the author’s best that I’ve read. I actually found the information at the end of the book about why she chose to write this story to be the most interesting. Overall, this book was fine if you need something to do, but I would definitely recommend you check out her other titles instead.
