I thought the action flowed at a steady pace. The character development was on point and there was a strong female lead character. I have said it before and I will say it again, there needs to be more of those in stories. There were a few plot twists that I did not see coming. There were a couple of times where I screamed at the iPad because I was shocked by what I had just read. It was that good. I will recommend Missing Melissa to others to read.
I give this 5/5 Platypires.
