Synopsis via Goodreads
Angie Favorite was just eleven years old when her mother disappeared, leaving Angie and her brother Jason to be raised by their grandmother while their rock-star father hit the road with his band. Since that day, Angie has gone through the motions of everyday life. She thinks she has everyone fooled — until the summer morning when she’s abducted from a mall parking lot. She narrowly escapes and her attacker, Scott Bittner, is arrested, but the weirdness has just begun. When Angie receives a letter from Scott’s mother, entreating her to meet so that she can apologize for her son’s actions, the girl reluctantly agrees. But it is soon obvious that Scott’s attack wasn’t random at all and that there is more to the strange Mrs. Bittner than meets the eye. In fact, she may hold the key to Angie’s mother’s disappearance. Part thriller, part coming-of-age tale, Favorite is an engrossing young-adult novel from a captivating author.
Angie & Angie's Grandma; pg. 17
"Lauren and Kelsey. Nice girls." She nodded in my direction. "Amazing really, the way they just happened to be in the right place at the right time. If it weren't for them, you could have died. The newspaper said they were like your own personal guardian angels."
Now that was a scary thought: two teenagers who were probably waiting for their dealer were all that had stood between death and me.
I hope you all enjoyed that passages. Sorry I didn't have another. Sometimes I'll read a passage that sticks out and totally forget to mark it. Thankfully this one I did though. lol. For more on my thoughts about Favorite you can check out my review. :D
