    One Came Home is so mysterious. It is mysterious because so many things happen and you have to find out how they go together- like a puzzle. I love how the main character is so determined. I also love how the author builds up suspense. If you like mysterious kinds of books, then this is a book for you!

    This book, I felt, started off very slow. It took me a little while to get into it. But, as I got further into the book, it became more interesting and adventurous. A young girl named Georgia goes on a quest to find her assumed to be dead sister, Agatha. A boy who has loved Agatha for years also tags along with her. As they search, they start to get more than what they asked for. Give this book a try, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.

    This book will take you on an amazing adventure! It takes place in 1871 and is about family love and friendship. I liked this book for its story line and the scary/oblivious events. The author will keep you interested until the very last page!

    I was excited about reading this book because when I read the back it seemed interesting and I enjoyed it but it could have had a little details at the end.
