Best Answer: Vivien Alcock's brilliant psychological thriller for children is a tale told through the eyes of Kate Seton, a sensitive eleven-year-old from a wealthy Hampstead family. Kate is an ordinary, happy-go-lucky girl until she overhears her parents discussing their other baby daughter who was snatched from her pram as a baby. Then, one day, a letter arrives at the Seton's house announcing that the baby is Rosie, now a thirteen-year-old girl-and nothing can ever be the same again in the Seton household. Rosie is from a very different background. Confused and angry about being led to this "posh" family, she denies she is the missing sister.

Ever since she heard about the mysterious disappearance of her older sister, Emma, from her carriage outside a dress shop two years before she was born, Kate has been fantasizing about meeting her perfect older sister. But when a thin teenager shows up at the door with a note reading, "I had just lost my baby and needed yours when I saw her. Lately I saw in the paper you never got over the loss of your baby so I am returning her to you, love, Louise" Kate is confused. The girl is not at all what she imagined Emma to be, and no one is really sure if it is Emma. The family tries to find out her real identity while the girl searches for Louise, who she thinks as her mother. The ending is nice and the whole story is very enjoyable. It's my second favourite book now because I loved it so much.

I really liked this book.One of the reasons was that i liked the characters,secondly i liked the setting.I think the author of this book did a pretty good job on that.The third reason was the story itself,i think it was a very interesting story.

The best part of the book was when a girl named "Rosie" appeared at theh door,with a note saying that she was the lost baby "Emma".And that was when the conflict started it.

The most vivid elements in the story were the characters,conflict,theme and resolution.The characters were very interesting.Also the conflict.I could really make a small picture of what it was going on,in the book.The theme and resolution were very clear i think.So far this book has been one of the best books i've read.

I really disliked this book. For one, I had to read it for school and take notes on it, so that took away the pleasure reading. And when I started it, I couldn't change books. When the librarian told us about what books to read, I thought it would be good, because that was the way she advertised it. But I was wrong.

One of the reasons I didn't like this book was because it was so boring. Being a first person narrative, it only talked from Kate's point of view. Which leads me to the next reason - the characters. Especially the main character, Kate, who I thoguht was extremely selfish. By the way she wrote the book, it seemed like she expected the world to bow down to her and kiss the ground she walked on. One example of this is the part where she tagged along woth Rosie when she went to Hockley. Rosie was going into the pub with all her friends. So Kate thinks, She left without telling me what to do! Where to go! Without offering to bring me a lemonade!

It was mainly the characters that got me. I mean, maybe it's just me, but I also like a happy ending. And a GOOD ending. I don't think that the ending the author gave the book really summed it up. Well, it didn't please me. Neither did any of the book.
