    Missing Mike was a very thoughtful book. It was a quick read, but it was still really good. Some parts was sad, but overall very heartwarming. You could really understand the connection between Mike and Cari, and how she would never give up. Cari makes friends along the way that really help Cari and understand what she is going thru. Missing Mike is definitely a good book for kids and adults.

    This is a very sweet story. I really liked this story because it was written in verse. I think that it’s a bit of a short read and recommend it for younger readers. I like that this is a realistic fiction book and the events in it could easily really happen.

    I really liked the book. It seemed very realistic. Right now (Oct. 10th) California is having brownouts to prevent wildfires and there was a news story about a puppy that survived being trapped under an air conditioner in the Bahamas after their devastating hurricane. I think people are more aware of saving pets during natural disasters.
