Has Anyone Seen Jessica Jenkins? by Liz Kessler

Paperback ARC Edition
I received an advanced reading copy of Has Anyone Seen Jessica Jenkins? by Liz Kessler for free through Goodreads First Reads. The following is my unbiased review for this novel.

Has Anyone Seen Jessica Jenkins? is the first novel I've read by Liz Kessler. It's a children's book for those aged 8 to 12 years old.

I had big plans to read this novel on Saturday, January 24, 2015 for National Readathon Day... However, I was so excited to begin reading it that I ended up starting it earlier and had read 118 pages by the time National Readathon Day came around... Unfortunately, I didn't read all four hours on National Readathon Day. Life happens, right? I read maybe 60 to 70 minutes on Saturday, January 24th and got as far as page 209.

I ended up finishing Has Anyone Seen Jessica Jenkins? by Liz Kessler earlier this week and finally had time to write sit down and write my review. So, what exactly did I think of Has Anyone Seen Jessica Jenkins? by Liz Kessler? I really liked this novel. It's a really fun, fast readand is filled with great characters and good storyline. I liked all of the action this novel contained as it held and kept my interest throughout my reading experience. I think Has Anyone Seen Jessica Jenkins? makes an excellent read for kids. The only minor complaint I had was the ending of this novel... I felt that how the group of kids (aka superheroes) helped to save Max could have been done a little differently... But, a least it kept me guessing as to how they would save him.

The following is a summary of Has Anyone Seen Jessica Jenkins? by Liz Kessler from Goodreads:
Jessica Jenkins has always been a perfectly ordinary girl—until one day part of her arm vanishes in the middle of geography class! Jessica’s friends Izzy and Tom are determined to help her develop her newfound invisibility, though Jessica is more concerned with discovering where the ability came from. When it becomes apparent that there may be other kids developing strange powers of their own, Jessica marshals them into a slapdash band of "slightly superheroes." But when an unscrupulous adult discovers the origin of their powers and kidnaps one of the team, the rest must put their heads—and all of their skills—together to avert disaster.
I am giving Has Anyone Seen Jessica Jenkins? by Liz Kessler a rating of 8.5 stars out of 10 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!
