Cemetary Girl: The ending vanishes like a ghost

I really liked most of the story. The writing was good and it seemed that there was a lot of interesting information from many of the characters and I anticipated the time when I could find out how the author was going to tie everything together. This, unfortunately, did not ever happen. The ending left me wondering, "is that really it?". I was disappointed since the book seemed to have so much potential.

- Carrie "I am a high school Science and English teacher. I grew up reading Stephen King and have branched out to include thrillers, historical fiction, science fiction, and my secret pleasure--teen dystopian novels. I am always looking for something new to add to my list of "to reads". I am a book-a-holic at heart!"

Very Disappointed

The majority of the reviews for this book were very good (4+ stars) which was why I purchased it, however, I struggled through the first half and almost gave up. The main characters were in my opinion not very likeable and I had a difficult time empathizing with them. I did not agree with their choices in dealing with their daughter's disappearance and when she reappeared (which it felt like forever before that happened), I felt the anger displayed by the father was over the edge. There was too much "oh pity me" emotions that went on and on and on (especially in the first half of the book). Thank goodness for fast forward! I thought this book would be more about solving a mystery and bringing the perpetrator to justice versus dealing with the emotions of two dysfunctional, not very likeable parents. I struggled to finish it but it got a bit better about half way through so I was able to make it to the end.
