John Kess has taken a subject that is unfortunately too familiar to us all, and handled it with gentleness, wisdom, and compassion. Finding Hanna was an unexpected gem of a story. I thought it would be darkly told, judging by the cover, and though it is about a kidnapping, a grim and all to familiar subject, I thought John Kess wrote with grace and compassion.

Hannah bent her six-foot-tall frame at the waist and stretched her long arms, easily touching her palms flat on the carpet. Listen to books in audio format instead of reading. Her slender body, along with her hard work in the pool, allowed her to move through the water fast enough to carve up several of our high school’s girls’ swimming records. Hannah and I had the same black hair, and brown eyes, but I had finally surpassed Hannah in height a few months ago, and I enjoyed reminding her often that she was shorter than her younger brother.

If Hannah was in the middle of it without food or shelter, we had to find her fast. The bloodhound brought in to sniff Hannah’s comforter had taken police down the same path I had run, all the way to the trail. From there the dog had run for about a mile and then lost the scent.

Good writing style and interesting characters support a story that captures interest from the start and doesn't release it until the final page is turned. With 15-year-old Dylan, the brother of a kidnapped girl, he feels responsible--though his parents and new friend, Molly, assure him that only the kidnapper is responsible. Molly has just moved to the area and joined the search for Hannah, and when the community search stops, she continues to help Dylan search the forest into which Dylan recalls hearing Hannah's screams the night she disappeared. As they search, Dylan learns Molly has her own feelings of guilt as well as some very real and dangerous concerns related to her home life.

Secondary characters threatening Dylan with knives, a nerdy friend helping with computer and electronic gadgetry, parents who love and worry about him, and Molly surviving through a situation that is challenging to say the least--all these and more create a good story line for young adult readers. Telling the story of a missing teen from the point of view of a sibling, it promotes safety concerns, legal issues, moral behaviors and more situations that teens face every day. This fictional writing is an excellent source of discussion topics as well as a spring board for imagination and hope.

This story is extremely well written with balance, suspense, and action. Late one night, before their parents return home, 15-year old Dylan Beachley is awakened by his 6 year old sister, Amy. Amy is fearful and says there is a man with a gun in their older sister's room. Hannah is missing! Amy and Dylan are traumatized from Hannah's kidnapping, each feeling they were to blame for their sister's loss. After three weeks, the search for Hannah is called off, but Dylan is determined to find her being that summer vacation has just started and he can devote all his time in a determined search along the Appalachian Trail, in the dense forest of New Hampshire. One other person joins him in the search; a new neighbor girl, also 15 years old, Molly Beckstrand. They gather all their hiking and camp gear, food, and GPS, etc. and head out farther than the areas already searched. This may be a Young Adult (YA) novel, but it's one that I could not put down. I also could not prevent tears rolling down my cheeks near the end as I read in Einstein's Bagel Shop. This is an absolutely compelling story and I applaud the author on his very first novel. He has written this with great sensitivity about family and values. I high recommend this novel for young and old.

John Kess has taken a subject that is unfortunately too familiar to us all, and handled it with gentleness, wisdom, and compassion. He allowed us a glimpse into the lives of a family torn apart by kidnapping and the internal struggles of family members and friends as they embark on a search with an uncertain outcome. Mr. Kess shows much promise as a young author, and I look forward to his next novel

John Kess had crafted a suspenseful story with likable characters and enough twists to keep readers interested.
15yo Dylan's ordinary life changes during the first pages of this story when his sister Hannah is kidnapped at gunpoint. The only witness is their 6 yo younger sister Amy.
When the search is called off after 3 weeks, Dylan takes off with 15 year old newcomer Molly to continue the search. She's not just searching for Hannah, but avoiding her mother's drug dealer boyfriend.
Kess avoids storyline cliches and predictable scenarios that lesser writers would have used. My only criticism is that at times the story drags in the middle with thwarted attempts at staking out possible hideouts. I also had to suspect my beliefs that parents would be fine with their teenage son spending days in the woods with a girl, searching for his sister.
I recommend this book for teens and adults interested in this genre.

This was a good debut novella. I consider it a novella because it was approximately 195 pages in length. It was an easy read, kept me turning the pages and I finished it quickly. This book is told through the eyes of Hanna's brother Dylan. Dylan is a very likeable character who does not give up on looking for his sister and seaches continuously, his determination is to be admired. There is the 6 year old sister Amy also who was affected by the taking of Hanna and his friend Molly. Molly helps Dylan search every day, she has a hard life at home, her story is a very intersting story within itself and kept the book very interesting. The relationship between Dylan and Molly had me smiling, it was endearing. A good quick easy read!

Finding Hanna was an unexpected gem of a story. I thought it would be darkly told, judging by the cover, and though it is about a kidnapping, a grim and all to familiar subject, I thought John Kess wrote with grace and compassion. The characters felt genuine allowing me to really grow to like them. The story is a good mix of suspense and adventure filled with laughs and cries. As I read I was thoroughly engaged, to the point of using the text-to-speech function for two chapters as I drove to and from work. In all, this book explores family and personal relationships in a heartfelt style, and I look forward to reading the author's second book, which I have already downloaded.

This is not a whodunnit mystery, paranormal romance, or twisted thriller like you would expect from most teen books of this description. It's a poignant story of grief and survival. Dylan and Molly are very sympathetic and easy to relate to. The aftermath of Hannah's disappearance is described in a realistic and sensitive way. The story also moves at a quick pace, making it easy to stay hooked to the end. Best of all is the romance. It's a sweet, sincere story of two teenagers who bond over tragedy. But their bond is one of mutual support, not dependency and obsession. Their feelings are not selfish, or used an excuse for destructive behavior. Each is strong, whole person without the other. This is a refreshing change of pace in a YA novel, I highly recommend it for teens or the teen in your life.
