There is a lot going on in this story--so much to keep you on edge! A young boy dealing with OCD and the loss of his brother all while trying to figure out what happened to his neighbor who has been taken. He is determined to solve the case with his new-found friend, and the friendship and family dynamics of this book are so fantastic!

Wow--this book kept me guessing. I loved Matthew's character and I was so glad to see OCD addressed in this fabulous middle grade novel. I think this novel would be a great family book to read together.
