An Original and Intriguing Twist!

My Abigail by David Duane Kummer was an inventive mystery that kept me guessing. The story’s twist was not something I saw coming, nor was it something I’ve read before. However, I do wish that it had been longer, in part because it was a fascinating world and I would have enjoyed delving deeper, but also because the story at times needed to be more fleshed out. Because of this, the pacing was, at times, inconsistent, and the mystery, while unique, was not entirely plausible. This also meant that certain scenes came across as random. I think more content would have overcome those factors, and personally, I would have loved to explore the author’s world more. That being said, the author created individual and strong characters, each with their own distinct voice. And while, at times, the dialogue presented itself as a bit disjointed, it was impossible not to come to really care about these characters. No spoilers (I promise) but their were definitely multiple scenes that really tore at my heart because of how well the author developed his characters! The age of the main characters did seem a bit off to me, they are supposed to be 13/14 but they act with a lot more maturity and freedom than I would expect from someone that age. What really impressed me, so that I really enjoyed the story, was that I did not see the ending coming. The author took it in a completely different direction than I expected. This direction (like the mystery) was fresh and creative, and truly worked with the story the author created. Overall, I recommend this story for any who enjoys romance and mystery with a twist. It was a good read!
