Wake Up Missing by Kate Messner, 272 pages, read by Angie, on 08/29/2013

Cat is finally going to get the help she needs. She suffered a concussion and has been having problems ever since; she has headaches, is dizzy and can’t do a lot of the things she used to. So she has come to ICAN in the Everglades to get help. There are other kids her age there getting this new treatment as well. Right from the start Cat and her friends notice something is not quite right at the institute. Turns out things are very wrong. They need to find out what is going on and get help before it is too late.

This was a fast-paced adventure that I am sure kids are really going to enjoy. There is a good deal of mystery and intrigue. Lots of chases with bad guys through the swamp. Even though I think kids will like this one; it was not my favorite. I had a hard time believing the story because it just seemed so far fetched. I’m not sure about the science either. It did hold my attention and was a quick read however.

I received a copy of this book on Netgalley and from the publishers at ALA 2013.
