Missing author Sue WhitiOunger readersMackenzie da Luca’s mother is missing – she’s vanished without a trace in the jungles of Panama Now 116 days later Mackenzie and. by Sue Whiting is a debut children’s novel about a young girl’s search for her missing mother It explores family friendship and love The book also shows readers what it’s like when a family is searching for answers — when people are struggling to cope with the unknown and they feel forced to take matters into their own hands “My face is burning up Memories are too hard I try to shove it out of my head — it’s safe that way — but it won’t budge and I’m already back at the gallery and thinking about how we strolled around and my scientific mother tried her best to look intrigued”This is an incredibly emotional debut It’s told from the perspective of Mackenzie after her mother has been missing for a number of weeks Her and her father venture to Panama after local authorities fail to locate Mackenzie’s mother This is a confronting read Over the course of the novel we are thrust back into the past so we can come to understand how strong Mackenzie’s connection was with her mother and just how special she was in their lives The disappearance of Mackenzie’s mother has a monumental effect on her life and it’s pretty heartbreaking to read thisMissing is warm and touching but it’s also heartbreaking You follow Mackenzie and her father as they try to find this missing piece of them and a sense of dread forms in the pit of your stomach Deep down you know what’s going to happen at the end of the novel Mackenzie’s father is broken and I liked how Sue portrayed his mental health He’s depressed and has been struggling ever since his wife went missing and he doesn’t shy away from that around Mackenzie Yes at some points he tries to hide how he’s really feeling but he is a really emotional character and Mackenzie can see how much he’s hurting Their relationship is uite complicated and fraught at times but given the situation they’re in I think Sue illustrated this really effectively “Dad’s the same because as the day wears on and the breeze gets stronger and the clouds hang lower and lower threatening to pour he becomes edgier and edgier Why is he torturing himself like this It’s hard to watch”The storyline is uite confronting for children to read but the writing is strong and rich with emotion The dialogue is believable and the characters relatable I loved the connection that Mackenzie shared with her grandmother — she relies on her grandmother a lot since her mother went missing and it is sweet to see the bond they share I think you have to stretch your imagination with the storyline though Mackenzie’s father pulls her out of school to go to Panama so they can both search for her mother And they leave Mackenzie’s grandmother at home worried It would’ve been realistic if her father left her behind with the grandmother while he went searching for the mother but then that would mean there wouldn’t be a story to tell Still I found the plot to be a bit unbelievableI recommend this to young teens and children who are in the upper end of primary school It’s middle grade novel so I think primarily it’s aimed at children 10 14 I think adult readers might be intrigued by the mystery of Mackenzie’s mother but I don’t think that Missing will necessarily appeal to adult readers The protagonist reads uite young and this book is cemented in the children’s literature space Thank you to the publisher for mailing me a review copy in exchange for an honest review
