“This novel was great. The main character "Annie" was believable,it was easy to get emotionally invested in her..The story is full of surprises.For me it was a page turner, i was always on the edge of my seat wondering what is going to happen next.The outcome of the story was totally unexpected.”steve wrote this review 3 weeks ago.

“The first Crime Novel I ever read, I was horrified by what Annie goes through and rooted for her throughout the book. Did not see the twist in the tale. ”Jody Muyambo wrote this review Friday, November 8, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Our October selection for our book club. Unlike many reviews I enjoyed the book more as it went along. My biggest problem with the book was the voice. It just sounded more like a man than a woman protagonist. Couldn't get past it.”Mary Ellen B wrote this review Sunday, October 13, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“The book Still Missing, written by Chevy Stevens, was mind-blowing because it was strong in the area of content. The most troublesome aspect of the content was when The Freak kidnapped Annie and took her to a cabin in the middle of nowhere. It's a really good book because there is a lot of drama and action in the story. For example, The Freak made Annie go in the shower and he tried raping her. This book may be a little inappropriate for some kids, but the fact that the author explains the shower part so slowly and detailed, it makes you imagine it in your head. " 'I got kidnapped by a freak, says Annie when she goes back to her mother." Annie had to go to a physicologist because she was mentally sick and got abused every day in the cabin with The Freak. It shows a strong content because Annie is really brave for dealing with him for a really long time. I think some other girl would've died if she got abused everyday. Therefore, Chevy Stevens has written a book that has solid content.
Like the content, the style of this book was very detailed. "It hurts", said Annie while The Freak was raping her. It shows the author's style because, Chevy, is very specific in what she writes and she gives really good examples in her writing. I really like the writing style of Chevy. She makes things really clear and you can visualize mostly everything in your head. She also describes everything very detailed and you can understand the story better. In my opinion, Chevy could of not done the sessions with the doctor. That confused me a bit, because the story went backwards in some parts. As mentioned above, I was very impressed with the style if this book.
The form of this book was clear but a little bit complicated and I found this not very effective. One main reason this form did work was because I could understand the book really good and it wasn't that complicated to read. In some parts, the story was going backwards and I got lost. Another reason timid form did was work was because it's a really easy read. The author did a great job in giving detailed information. She explains The a freak and Annie really well and it gives me an idea in how they are and how they look like. These reasons made the form work for me. It could have been better if the author didn't keep on going backwards in the story. As a result, I give this book a really good recommendation because the content, form, and style are really good explained. I read it over and over again because I like the book so much.”
“This was Chevy Stevens debut book, and I have to say it was a wonderful read!
It was very suspenseful and held my interest throughout the whole story.
Sometimes hard to read about what this woman survives. Surprise ending was also well done. Good from start to finish.
If you can't handle the darker side of humanity, you might want to skip this one. If you can, then it's an intense but worthwhile read.”
“I really liked this book. Sometimes it's all about the timing and the subject matter feels so relevant with the news story of the girls who were freed from captivity in Ohio and Jaycee Duggard. It's a short read. I loved the approach that the story was told by the main character in therapy sessions. I consumed this book. It was just a really well written account of a situation we all hear about on the news and we know exists and all wonder what we would do in the same situation. It spoke to the fear and dread in me. The author did a wonderful job of making Annie a real person. I could identify with her. There were times I wanted to shake her and times I wanted to hug her. I know I will miss her as I move onto my next book. I definitely recommend.”Corinne S wrote this review Wednesday, August 14, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
