The Girl in the Red Coat

The Girl in the Red CoatThe Girl in the Red Coat by Kate Hamer

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

We know there will be a kidnapping. What we don’t know is who will do it, nor why. Kidnappers are sometimes stupid; kidnappers are sometimes cunning and conniving.

Alternating chapters tell the story from Beth’s and Carmel’s perspectives. I think this helps soften the harshness of the kidnapping – not letting the reader’s imagination run wild. This also shows us two tenacious females who undergo some amazing character development.

Good for Carmel for continuing to try to wear red!

Parents, tell your children that kidnappers lie and what they lie about!!!
