A Liv Bergen Mystery
review 1: Noah is a 12 year old boy with Cerebral Palsy and a wonderful relationship with his aunt Liv and his sister Emma. Liv is new to the FBI but has been put on a high profile case of a missing 5 year boy Max. Throughout the story Liv works with a team of FBI and police and also her tracking dog Beulah to find Max. Unlikely help comes from Noah who although unable to walk, talk, or do much of anything else is able to figure out where Max is and help others find him. I loved reading the chapters written from Noah's perspective, and realizing how much he had to offer and how much he could do to communicate with others even though many saw him as incapable of anything. This was my first Liv Bergen mystery although it's the 4th in a series. The books don't need to be read in ... moreorder and I plan to read more books in this series.
review 2: As a teacher, I love author's of adult books creating strong characters who have disabilities. Noah is a 12 year old with cerebral palsy. His Aunt Liv is a newly trained FBI agent, assigned to the Denver office. Liv is living with her Noah's family while looking for an apartment closer to the office. The story is well written. It is not necessary to have read the other books in the series to enjoy this book. The author must have first hand experience with people with severe C.P. for she tells Noah's story in first person in a style that is straight forward, showing that although the body may be crippled the mind isn't. The voice of Noah rings true for a 12 year old confined to his body and used to being a bystander in life. If nothing else, I hope you look at people with CP differently. Instead of pretending they aren't there, you look them in the eye and smile. Oh, the mystery of a kidnapping is an excellent story as well as having an amazing main character. less
