Cynthia has a Secret by P.D. Workman
4 stars out of 5
This novel says the story of a smart young girl, Carmina, who finds herself in the situation of taking care of herself after the arrest of her overprotective parents. The narrative follows Carmina’s journey, her evolution from a smart but uninformed teenager to a state of wakening awareness.
The story is balanced. The author doesn’t rush through the scenes and the suspense is preserved almost up to the end.
The characters are interesting enough and in continuous evolution. Both Carmina and Neil, the FBI agent, grow and influence each other. I think the author does a very good job in fleshing out not only these two characters but also the secondary ones.
There are enough twists in the story to keep the reader’s curiosity high. There are a few things that are a little too hard to believe and that is why I couldn’t give the story five stars. However, I would recommend this book to anyone interested in mysteries, especially to teenagers and young adults.
