Missing Pieces

Missing Pieces - Norma Fox Mazer This book had so much potential. The writing, however, seemed to lack flare, that's what I am going to call it. I think I'm becoming a bit of a negative book reviewer here. Anyways, unfortunately, the author happens to be one of these writers with these ridiculous reasons for why something can't be. Further explanation, Jessie, is trying to find her father and decides to start calling all the 150 or so wells' in the phonebook (good luck on that). As she is calling to find him or anyone related, there are a handful of people that give her the excuse of they just moved here so, not possible. I'm sorry, you just moved here which means there is no way you are related? Because we all live in colonies with our families and no where else. I personally don't have any relatives that live in Texas, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. Or that, at any point in time they can't decide to move by me, live by one another or back to where they grew up . No,no,no that's not how it works. Maybe one person with that excuse, okay, but a bunch, ha, I don't think so. I gave it a 2 because the ending did nothing for me. She goes through all this trouble searching, fighting, and thinking of her father; to when he is finally in her grasp, nothing. All that, and you did nothing, absolutely nothing. I was left feeling cheated of a story and the ending it should of had.
