  1. This is totally Nancy Drew in Christian form. It’s a quick read, action-packed, and not too preachy. In fact, despite my misgivings at picking up a book in a series titled FaithGirlz (that “z”… why do they do that?!), I found that the Christian element was well treated. There is no come-to-Jesus-preachy-message; instead, Jeri’s faith seems genuine and realistic–much like what many 12-year-old Christians might be thinking/feeling.

    I actually got Vanished as a Kindle freebie back in early 2011, and it proceeded to sit on my Kindle ever since. However, I was trying to finish up my A-Z Title Challenge and needed a V. Of the 3 V’s on my Kindle, Vanished was the shortest and didn’t sound too bad. It served its purpose, but it certainly was not a great book.

    I’ve read some Christian books that aren’t too bad or in your face. Vanished was not one of them. It seemed that all too often, Jeri was praying and
