 Author: Rachel Langley
216 pages | Genre: Science Fiction & Fantasy
Price: $11.99 Paperback | Available: Amazon

Laney and Leela are identical twins, except for a birthmark and two very different personalities. Home for the summer after college graduation, they go on a camping trip with their two younger siblings. When they return home, they find the town empty. Everyone is missing, including their parents and Laney’s boyfriend, Hollister. 

Besides some strange marks on the ground caused by a lightning storm, there aren’t any clues, and without any leads on the disappearances, the police leave the town isolated and closed off. Laney falls into despair, and Leela is not sure how much longer they can remain in their home, hiding from the authorities. 

When a mysterious man named Curwen arrives, claiming he wants to help them, Laney and Leela aren’t sure how to proceed. He decides to tell them the truth even though it is forbidden—he works for the leader of an underground resistance, and he knows where their loved ones have been taken. Curwen offers to help the twins on a mission to rescue their parents and Hollister—a mission that could cost them their lives. Can they trust him? He may be their only hope.


My daughter Dominique has written the review. She was very happy to share her thoughts on how much she loved the book.

Struck’ is a very interesting novel written by Rachel Langley. It is about two twin sisters named Laney and Leela, whose only physical difference is a peculiar birthmark on Leela’s neck. After a night of fun in a cave not too far from town, the girls and their little siblings, Annabelle and Corey, return home to find the town completely deserted. The town is covered with mysterious marks on the ground and the leftovers of what would have been Laney’s engagement party, the girls go into hiding, unsure of what to do. About two weeks later, a mysterious man named Curwen appears and introduces them to a world they never would have believed if they hadn’t seen it. He then offers to help them rescue their family.

This story only takes little time to get to really get started, the progression of storytelling makes the book a good choice for those readers who are prone to losing interest before they finish. It also has a captivating and mysterious storyline that will keep you guessing. Chapter after chapter, you will question what is going to happen next. This story will leave you constantly on the edge of your seat, wondering who is an enemy, if the heroes will escape, or whether they will reach the ultimate goal of rescuing their friends and family. Like the many other shocking moments in this story, the ending will leave you, well, shocked. Overall, I believe this is a great book with an interesting plot. The author was kind enough to sign my copy of the book and wish me luck in my first year of high school. Thank you so much!
