Only he finds it difficult to be someone you’re not; especially when that someone is hiding on even bigger secret. Does Chap have what it takes to be Cassiel? Who is Chap?
This mystery will leave you wondering. It starts slow and the language is a little excessive as it doesn’t add to the scenes. But, overall, the characters are likable and to book is a decent read. Readers who like mistaken identity fiction and missing person stories will enjoy reading this book. MS, HS. OPTIONAL. Reviewer: Jessica Moody, Library Media Specialist, Olympus Jr. High.
