    One thought on “Rift”

    1. This was an exciting and tense book that was very gripping at times. It was set in Africa, which intrigued me further as I actually learned more about the place I live in. The book was from the point of view of a girl named Ella, who had travelled from Britain to investigate further into her sister’s disappearance a long with a bunch of other students that were on the school trip. The mystery is revealed in layers with random students being found in confusing places but not her sister. This gr [...]

    2. This had the potential to be a great book. The story line was interesting, the setting was different and unique. It was slow starting, but after the first few chapters, it really takes off. And then it ends. That's the problem. It introduces some really big characters and situations, and then never resolves them. There is no closure on the second theme of bullying. The whole reason behind the students disappearance is just cut off. Juvenile fiction authors need to have more respect for their rea [...]

    3. I met Beverley and was therefore lucky to get a signed copy of this book from her. She has a formidable reputation as both a successful children's/YA writer and an editor and this was the first book of hers that I'd read.I liked it, but was confused at times over the plot.She builds up the drama nicely, I love her descriptions of the place setting in Africa and her characters are strong, but I found it difficult to follow all the different threads. I gave it to my 11 year old daughter, thinking [...]

    4. Very good book about the search for 5 people lost in an arid, remote area in Africa. The searchers know they must find them soon or it will be too late. The man in charge of the search is African and it is all a little mystical. Three of the lost are English, students from a camp made up of students all from the same school. The teacher in charge is a control freak who dislikes the students who are lost and there is some possibility she may be responsible for their disappearance.

    5. I didn't like this book. Period. It didn't real you in like most books would. Maybe it's just not my type of book but, hey, at least I tried. The back of the book doesn't even tell you what the book is about(I picked it up for the cover. The first pages are dead boring. I also thought that the book was a tad confusing. Ella wasn't all that great of a character either. So overall, bad

    6. Read as an audio book.There needed to be something more in this book - another reason why the 4 children had disappeared. Maybe to do with bully and the mean principal teacher being in cahoots or something. Otherwise it was a just a bit flat with no real suspense.No doubt it is a young, Young Adult book so it might appeal better to that age group.

    7. I enjoyed this book, the mystery twists and turns offering the reader the chance to guess and second guess what has happened to the missing group. I think there could have been more to the story, perhaps it wrapped up to quickly towards the end.

    8. Unfortunately I was forced to read this for one of my modules at uni, and I really, really didn't get on with the subject matter, or the way it was written.

    9. This is a wonderful book. An unusual format consisting of character pov, journal entries, letters, emails. Well drawn, interesting characters and fascinating plot. Highly recommended.

    10. Atmospheric, intriguing mystery set in Africa. Very reminiscent of the old movie "Picnic at Hanging Rock". I just re-read this for my teen book group at work. Very good!

    11. Good adventure story, but elements of bullying just muddy the waters and they are not resolved, ending comes very fast. Nominated for the Carnegie Medal (UK)
