Mickey Bolitar is Myron Bolitar's nephew is having a hard time at school

Shelter (Micky Bolitar, #1) - Harlan Coben

Mickey is in a new school and already bumped into the school bully. 


Fortunately, he is a 6'6'' and also a basketball player.  And already have some martial art training and not easily intimidated. 


He got to know a few friends, Ema, Spoon, and Ashley. 


He likes Ashley. And when Ashley disappeared one day, he is desperate to find her.


But he didn't want any help from his uncle Myron. For some reasons, he dislike Myron for not liking his mom, who is in rehab for drug addiction. 


A Bat Lady, typical rumor started by children who is easily frightened. 


The adventure part is fine. 


The only problem I have is how little regard the Bat lady and her ally have on the safety of children. Not getting police involved was a mistake from the start. Secret is not a good thing, especially for teenagers. If they got too good at lying, it is harder to be an honest adult. 


That is 4 stars or 3.5 stars read. I feel generous today.
