Jordashebasics's Thoughts:

A good entry. No real problems. Internal consistency is excellent, there's a decent amount of detail, but not enough for it to feel strange.

There is one weakness, and it's an odd one. Too many of the endings are positive. I think there were two endings that seemed like things don't work out for you, the rest involve regaining your memory.

KenJenningsJeopardy74's Thoughts:

This book is one of my all-time favorites. The adventures are diverse, gripping, and feel very realistic. The pacing between decisions is absolutely perfect, and the stories stretch out flawlessly, with action-packed possibilities in seemingly every direction. I also liked the Daredevil Park storyline involvement! I consider this book to be one of Edward Packard's greatest masterpieces.

yunakitty's Thoughts:

This is another good entry late in the series. The only thing I had issue with was that in the opening of the story, your character stumbles to the road and starts hitchhiking. I guess it can be explained that you were so confused that you don't really have a choice, but hey, it's a choose your OWN adventure, and if I'm going to do something dangerous, I'd like a say in it! I think that the very first decision should have been whether or not to hitchhike, then it could have branched from there.

I was a little surprised with the family that takes you in. Don't they know you can't just keep lost kids? I remember moving around with my family when I was a kid and the hassle my poor mother, God rest her soul, had to go through to get me and my sister registered in new schools. And she gave birth to us and had all the paperwork to prove it! So I don't know what that family was thinking. I kept expecting for them to turn out to be some kind of freaks that wanted to eat you, but I had to remember that it's not a Give Yourself Goosebumps!
