Five years have passed since sixteen-year-old Angie Favorite’s mother disappeared without a trace. Since that day, Angie has managed to go through the motions of everyday life—until the summer morning when she’s abducted from a mall parking lot. Angie narrowly escapes, and her attacker is arrested, but he takes his life in jail before he can offer an explanation for his crime. When his mother contacts Angie, begging forgiveness on her son’s behalf, the girl agrees to meet with her in hopes of finding answers to the seemingly random attack. But when she arrives at the family’s massive estate, she is overcome by an unshakeable sense of foreboding...

Part thriller, part coming-of-age tale, Favorite is an engrossing young adult novel in which nothing—and no one—is as it seems.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 VLynch | 2/7/2014

    " This book was interesting. You knew who was crazy, but not how crazy. Angel was a wonderful character who really attracts the reader at the very beginning. She does a simple ordinary act that results in a extreme consequence, one that could happen to anyone when our guard is down for a split second. However, the consequences of the one act seems to go on and on for Angel, the result being something she never imagined. A result that could change her family forever. "

    " A nice afternoon read, but at some points felt a bit rushed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leah | 1/31/2014

    " It was short and kind of seemed like a second draft. But, I liked it. Mostly. It was a nice, quick, and creepy read.... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 KDawn | 1/29/2014

    " This had a very intriguing synopsis, which is why I downloaded it. It was okay. Definitely a young adult read, though. I was NOT the target audience. That is probably why I found it was a tad predictable...still, I read the entire thing. A little mind candy never goes amiss. I just think that some of the characters had great potential and she could've drawn out the idiosyncrasies a bit more to give them more depth. I can't say whether I'd pick another one of McQuestion's books up... maybe if they were targeted to adults instead. I'll keep the book. My daughter may like it some time. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Carol | 1/25/2014

    " I read the book, but really did not like it much. Too much coincidence and the characters just did dumb things. I had it figured out early on. Not my type of book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 1/22/2014

    " This has been a very quick read. Storyline is intriguing and keeps you interested from page 1. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stacia | 1/13/2014

    " This is the kind of book I probably would've enjoyed more if I was part of the target audience. It's definitely Y/A - an easy read but a bit simple and obvious I thought. It reminded me of something I would've written myself. I'd recommend it to someone about 15-20 years younger than my advanced age. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne | 1/12/2014

    " Interesting storyline. Easy read. Not sure why other reviewers say it's a YA book. I thought it was a good book that I recommend. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lesley Green | 12/31/2013

    " Good start. A little slow in the middle but picked up paced at the end. Favorite is this girls last name but favovorite means different to the bittner household. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katherine Coble | 11/26/2013

    " If you write a book from the first-person perspective of a 16yo, at least try to sound like a 16yo. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 nikki crupi | 11/11/2013

    " Stopped at 50%. Terribly written and uninteresting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Yolanda | 11/8/2013

    " I was enjoying the story up until the ending. I felt like it was rushed. Almost as if the author either got bored or their editor told them to finish up already which was disappointing. I'm not sure where the story could have gone, but, I feel like it took a wrong turn and found a dead end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer Geller | 11/3/2013

    " very quick read. strangely, it was the third book of similar theme and compared to the others, this was weak. (but it was still okay. over before you could get bored) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kassi | 10/21/2013

    " Very good for a teen mystery. Will definitely recommend to my students. Well- written from a teen's perspective. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristi | 10/11/2013

    " Loved this book! Read it quickly in day because I enjoyed the story line so much! I look forward to reading more by this author! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kyra | 9/15/2013

    " A bit predictable, but good. A really quick read, and doesn't take a lot of thought. Perfect for the pool or beach. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angel | 9/9/2013

    " It went quickly - mostly because I was skimming to find out what happened. I absolutely hated that the MC's name was Angie. Much better when they called her Angel or Ang. :) But the story was good - one of the better YA books that I've read in a while. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ari | 7/11/2013

    " In most of the chapters, I was legit on the edge of my seat, terrified of what was happening or what was going to happen. Definitely a book worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mindy | 6/30/2013

    " A fun little YA mystery novel. Easy read & pretty predictable, but enjoyable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Angela Campbell-clontz | 6/2/2013

    " Predictable! A good read for a teen ager! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marie | 5/5/2013

    " A good book over all, but creepy. Too creepy for me to rate it higher than three stars. Any of that weird stalker/murder stuff just doesn't sit well with me. But it was refreshing to read a new author. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Beth Hannigan | 3/4/2013

    " I really did not enjoy this book, it seemed silly and very unconvincing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laurie | 2/19/2013

    " A very quick read, but kind of blah. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather Moss | 11/10/2012

    " Likable protagonist, but very predictable story. Recommended for ages 10-14, but the book does contain abductions and violence, and may scare some kids. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 10/3/2012

    " Great YA book. My grand daughter and I both enjoyed it. Nice to have a book we can read and discuss together. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Paula | 9/17/2012

    " Started off slowly ... then got real creepy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane | 8/24/2012

    " This was a free Kindle download from Amazon. It was pretty good, an interesting story with unexpected twists and turns, and as a free book, it was a pleasurable read. "
