The only thing that I wasn't really fond of was that the events that happened in the book were not realistic. I understand that this is a fiction literature novel but I just couldn't really picture it as realistic that way but I still really enjoyed it the books!
Grace refuses to believe that her father went out into the woods for his daily patrol and died. No freaking way! So what if it has been over three months with him missing?! Someone MUST have done something to him! Everyone thinks she is crazy because she goes out into the woods and searches for him every day... Her mom even has her in therapy of all things! Will Grace ever find her father? Will he be dead or alive? What really happened the day he went missing?
This was an amazing book that explored the pitfalls of young love as well as the darker side of the wilderness. The poachers in this book really were the big bad in more ways than one. The idea that true evil is good men doing nothing was well illustrated. Packed with intrigue, thrills, mysteries and suspense this young adult romance is anything but run of the mill ! I enjoyed every page of this unique book even with the conservancy theme and can not wait to read the next one!
***This book is suitable for young adult through adult readers who enjoy some science and conservancy in their woodland based thrillers :)
I grew up in the country surrounded by trees, but if you threw me in the middle of the woods, there is no way I would be able to find my way out, let alone survive. But Grace has lived in the Smokies all her life, patrolling with her forest ranger father who taught her about wildlife, tracking, and the wilderness. She knows how to survive out there and that’s something I greatly admire and what initially attracted me to Untraceable by S.R. Johannes. There are really strong ties to nature and preservation of wildlife, something I haven’t read a whole lot about and was really happy to.
I liked Grace immediately. I loved how comfortable she was in the woods and how easily she could read everything around her. She was self-sufficient and smart witted and seemed far more mature than her sixteen years. Even when she acted like a teenager – arguing with her mother or being difficult with her therapist – it wasn’t in an annoying, bratty way. Her defiance was well placed and she didn’t seem out of line or whiny. And her chemistry with Wyn was strong. I enjoyed their witty back and forth banter and she seemed to have a pretty solid understanding of their intertwined dynamic, which was comforting to read.
As Grace refuses to give up on her father’s closed case, we learn more about the town and the wildlife, specifically the bears, that she and her father make a life mission to protect. This was a very powerful and moving part of the book, some of the horrifically true details that were explained about bear poaching were so disturbing and sad. I didn’t really expect to have such a reaction to a book that seemed otherwise lighthearted. It’s almost like a PSA in the middle of a fiction book.Read more ›
Grace was like a modernized version of the original Nancy Drew. When she gets clues that her father may still be alive, she quickly acts, going against even the police. She doesn't have any accomplices at first, but soon meets Mo whom she falls in love with. He becomes her partner in crime, but ends up keeping secrets about his connections, and exactly why he's interested in stopping the case.
At the beginning of the book, Grace doesn't have, or know, Mo. Instead, she's friends with her ex Wyn, who wishes they weren't exes anymore. Wyn has no idea about Mo later on, and although Grace isn't leading Wyn on, it makes for an interesting love triangle (especially considering the fathers of the teens). On one hand I wanted Grace and Mo to be together but on the other hand, I also really felt bad for Wyn, who had no idea that Grace was seeing somebody.
Grace and Wyn had originally called it quits when her father disappeared. At the beginning of the book, Grace is still trying to find clues to prove that he's alive. This was really what showed me how much she cared about her father, not just because she was looking for him but because she was looking for him using the techniques that he taught her. What was also a nice little touch was that at the beginning of each chapter, there were little survival tip that Grace's father presumably taught her.Read more ›
