Line Break

When Lucas’s brother, Aidan, vanishes, the police question their family unrelentingly. Then Aidan returns. The police demand an explanation, but he won’t say anything about where he was or why he left. The only person he’ll tell the whole story to is Lucas. But what Aidan describes—a concealed dimension with unnatural scenery and creatures—shocks Lucas. Lucas wants to trust Aidan, but how can he, when Aidan’s story is so unimaginable? If you like books with plenty of feeling and loads of mystery, you’ll fall in love with The Mysterious Disappearance of Aidan S. (as Told to His Brother), by David Levithan. I rate this book a 9 out of 10.
