Book Review: The Key to Finding Jack by Ewa Jozefkowiz

“”What are the facts, Flick?” I heard Jack’s voice in my ear.

“These are the facts, Jack,” I said aloud into the cold winter air.”

Today I am reviewing The Key to Finding Jack by Ewa Jozefkowiz, which was kindly sent to me by the publishers in exchange for an honest review.

Flick loves all things mystery related, and nothing more than trying to solve a mystery herself, but it’s different when she is thrown into a real life one when her brother Jack goes missing whilst travelling during an earthquake. He’s left a secret note behind for S.F, so Flick sets out to do the thing she knows best: solve the mystery.

Flick and her brother have a gorgeous sibling bond, which I just loved reading about. Flick is working through some tricky emotions as Jack is getting ready to move way to university and Flick is worried about how things will change between them when Jack moves. However, as the story progresses it becomes increasingly clear that there are a lot of things about Jack that Flick and their parents don’t know. I really enjoyed seeing Flick learn more about Jack and her wider family as she worked through her investigation, and how knowing Jack better helped her to deal with her feelings.

I loved the mystery in this story. It kept me on my toes, guessing until the end. There’s also a mystery within a mystery, as Flick is writing a story at school (another mystery I could not solve)! Even though the main story is undoubtedly Flick trying to find her brother, there are a lot of smaller stories within this that are just as wonderful: Flick’s school and writing, their grandparents love story, and the people Jack has helped. I loved all of these smaller elements.

The Key to Finding Jack is a gorgeously written, gripping mystery story with brilliant characters and a truly wonderful ending.

Will you be picking this one up?
