Review: Cathy's Book: if found call (650) 266-8233 by Sean Stewart and Jordan Weisman
Released: October 2006
Pages: 143
Publisher: Running Press
Grade: A-

After Cathy's boyfriend Victor abruptly breaks up with her she's determined to find out why. It just happened out of nowhere. One day they were together and the next they weren't. It was like he suddenly disappeared and just wanted to be out of her life. Little did she know that there was a reason for Victor to not want to be in Cathy's life.

After she breaks in to what she thought was his uncle's million dollar home she finds out a few things about Victor. When she's almost caught in the house she steals almost everything that she touched and flees. Back home she starts going through his planner and old pictures and notes that she found. Things aren't quite adding up. She tries to get her best friend Emma involved. At first Emma doesn't want anything to do with finding Victor. But after something she changes her mind and wants to get more involved than even Cathy does.

Soon Cathy finds herself in a dangerous situation after having run in to Victor a few times. He told her to stay away from him but of course Cathy wouldn't listen. Now Cathy's life could be in danger all because she wanted to find out the truth from Victor. What will end up happening? Will the truth be as shocking as she ever imagined it to be?

First off, I finished this book in two days. It was one of those books that I just couldn't put down. From the first page I was sucked right in. Cathy's sassyness and attitude towards everything is awesome and makes the book so great. There were times I was a bit confused but after re-reading a few certain things I was right back on track. Basically the voice of Cathy makes this book. I couldn't wait to find out what happened at the end. It ended sort of abruptly but left a nice opening in to the next book, Cathy's Key. I'd suggest this book to anyone who's put off by reading. This book makes you want to read. It's written in a journal sort of format with a bunch of doodles all over the place. It feels like you're reading a diary. Overall it was just a great book that I highly recommend. It's a great mystery.
