Three years after witnessing the kidnapping of her best friend Robin, Paige Bellen is expected to continue on with life as usual. Now, with her closest friend out of the country, a messy relationship with Robin's boyfriend, and a family that handles her with kid gloves, Paige isn't sure if she'll ever be able to move forward in life.

Bear Witness explores the aftermath of a crime in a small town, and what it means when tragedy colors the experience of being a young adult.

My two-bits:

I found this story to be a quick read that covers a serious topic told in a serious tone. What happens in the event of a kidnapping? The perspective of a teen witness is presented before, during and after the incident.

The sense of helplessness and coping with the emotions involved comes through. And, while not a tearjerker, the story's sadness is felt.
