I found the novel Missing Judy very exciting because of the main plot twist. A novel about a missing child on its own is thrilling but the author Anne Cassidy added the mystery of ‘Margret’ to the storyline. I was found almost hoping that it was Margaret that abducted her so that Judy was still alive and ‘Kim’ had found her. Like Kim I thought that it was her because of the same names and that an American woman lived in the house that Judy's shirt was found and I was surprised when I ended up being her uncle in a simple car accident. This was why I liked this book. It was also interesting to see how a simple thought (by Teresa and Shelly) that Margret had abducted Judy to replace her daughter that had died could have sparked into Kim truly thinking this was real as well as Teresa and Shelly. I really enjoyed this book.
I liked in this novel Missing Judy how a little lie made by ‘Kim’ about a ‘red van’ had turned into a big lie because it showed me that if something appears to be small to other people it might be a big thing. This lie was made the focus point of police in their investigation and Kim felt guilty because she believed that if the police focused on other clues they might have found her. Another lie in the novel by the uncle (Jeff) like Kim he was naïve in thinking that his lie (about the car accident) "would just die down”, I found it interesting to see how a seemingly small insignificant lie could result in something much worse, and how people can see things differently to each other. This was another interesting aspect of this book that I enjoyed.
