Lynne Garrett’s life changed forever as a result of a horrific car accident that required one of her legs to be amputated. Not wanting to join her family for a trip to Disneyland, Lynne decides to visit her Aunt Pat in the historical area of Virginia City, Nevada. Pursued by strange men she saw on the plane, Lynne must uncover a mystery that threatens her life.
Mystery and history blend together in this suspenseful young adult novel from award-winning author Mary Jean Kelso. Relying on her vast knowledge of the area, Kelso creates an adventure story filled with historical tidbits and locales. The author was wise to make Lynne new to the area, so other characters had a reason to share those tidbits. I enjoyed learning more about the area, too. It was also good to see Lynne having more than the mystery to focus on. She is adjusting to life after her accident while also trying to stay one step ahead of the men who seem determined to harm her. Twists and turns lead to a surprising ending that satisfies.
Goodbye Is Forever is a quick summer read.
