Pointe is a fantastic novel about Theo, a young girl who four years ago spent all her time in ballet or with her best friend Donovan. But her life was turned upside down when he suddenly goes missing. Four years later, as she sits across the table at dinner with her two closest friends Sara-Kate and Phil she sees his face pop up on the TV screen like it has thousands of time before "but this time was different ... she tells us that he is alive. Donovan's been found" (Colbert 14). But along with him comes the memories and suffering that came with the past. Through out the story you follow Theo as she recollects on the day he went missing and her connection to his kidnapper.
This book is an emotional roller coaster from watching as Theo goes from her highest of highs to her lowest of lows. Colbert did an amazing job of painting the characters in such away where you can really see their personalities and the inner conflict they suffer themselves as teenagers. I think the author did a fabulous job leaving me on the edge of my seat with each flip of the page. So definitely 10/10 I highly recommend.
