Vanishing Acts by Jodi Picoult This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By , Montcliar, NJ
Vanishing Acts is about Delia Hopkins, who lives a near-perfect life. Everything is going great – she has a job she enjoys, a loving daughter, and an adoring fiancé – until the police show up at her door and arrest her father. Her dad had always been the model citizen, so it's hard for her to believe that he is being arrested for kidnapping Bethany Matthews. Even more shocking, she finds out she used to be Bethany before her father kidnapped her during a custody visit.

Now Delia is faced with a tough decision: should she believe that her father didn't have any choice, or that he committed a terrible crime and should be punished for it? This becomes the question the jury is faced with at her father's trial.

Overall, Vanishing Acts is a good book, but the end left me confused. I wasn't really sure what happened. I have read other books by Picoult that have good plots but bad endings.

I would recommend this to anyone who has enjoyed her other books.
