Looking for X is written by Deborah Ellis. The book is set in Toronto, Canada.
The main character is called Khyber. She lives with her mum and two autistic brothers who are young toddlers. They live in a small apartment.
Khyber makes a friend called X, who goes missing and Khyber goes to look for her. Khyber doesn’t even know what X looks like because X always wears a cape with a hood and so you never see her face. On the way there are twists and turns. Will Khyber find X? She hardly knows the streets of Toronto and she can get lost very easily.
I really like this book because it’s exciting and slightly sad. It’s a fantastic book and it really grips you with its intensity and it makes you want to read on.
This book is well written; it is written formally. “Khyber Khyber where are you going?.” shouted mum. I chose this sentence because it is at a critical moment in the book when Khyber is about to go looking for X who has just gone missing.
Deborah Ellis, the author, was born in 1960 and grew up in Cochrane, Alberta in Canada.
I would recommend this book for 11-13 year old children. I would rate this fantastic book 4 out of 5 stars.
