Vanishing Acts is truly a book about love, lies, and surprises. Delia Hopkins has a wonderful life with her dad, daughter, boyfriend and best friend. Her life is as close to perfect as it gets until the day the police come and arrest her dad for kidnapping her. I would recommend this to anyone who likes a sudden change of events. This is also a good book for people who like to read about strong family bonds that hold through the toughest times.
