Descrizione

From award-winning and highly acclaimed author Court Stevens comes a heart-wrenching story of small towns, rumors, and thirteen missing boys.

The Gemini Thief could be anyone.

Your father, your mother, your best friend’s crazy uncle.

Some country music star’s deranged sister. Anyone.

Someone is stealing Tennessee’s boys.

Report suspicious behavior.

The Gemini Thief is a serial kidnapper, who takes three boys and holds them captive from June 1st to June 30th of the following year. The June Boys endure thirteen months of being stolen, hidden, observed, and fed before they are released, unharmed, by their masked captor. The Thief is a pro, having eluded authorities for nearly a decade and taken at least twelve boys.

Now Thea Delacroix has reason to believe the Gemini Thief took a thirteenth victim: her cousin, Aulus McClaghen.

But the game changes when one of the kidnapped boys turns up dead. Together with her boyfriend Nick and her best friends, Thea is determined to find the Gemini Thief and the remaining boys before it’s too late. Only she’s beginning to wonder something sinister, something repulsive, something unbelievable, and yet, not impossible:

What if her father is the Gemini Thief?

    The June Boys is at truly incredible book. Both the story and the audio production were high quality.

    I was intrigued by the concept. Like why would a person kidnap their victim but then release them after a year? I want the tea. Sadly, it didn't live up my expectations. The plot wasn't entertaining enough and the suspense wasn't there. The characters were unremarkable as well. I didn't form any attachment with them at all. They were just there. Well, I did like Aulus. He's the only well-rounded character. His will for survival, and how he remained hopeful for the sakes of others, really makes me ache for him.

    The big revelation felt so underwhelming. The worst part is that I don't even know this character exists until the very end. Another reason why the big reveal didn't work because there wasn't any build-up suspense for this.

    Also, the narrator who narrate Aulus sounded like a guy in his forties, which is a little weird (since Aulus is a teenager). I thought maybe they probably should get someone who sounds younger. But maybe that's just me.

    So yeah, it wasn't a good reading experience. Though I was hooked on finding who's the Gemini Thief, the experience of getting there wasn't fun.

    was I the only one who thought this was confusing? I didn't have a clear idea of who several of the characters were. I didn't think they were very well presented.
