Less than a chapter in, and I already want to kick Theo in the head. His best friend has (possibly) been kidnapped, and he's actively attempting to keep information from the police:
"Did you chat online?" the detective asked.
"No, sir, not last night. Just phone." They often used Facebook and text messages, but Theo knew not to volunteer information. Just answer the question in front of you. He'd heard his mother say this to her clients many times.
And it gets worse: More Irritating, Smug and Stilted. Ag.
I don't know if I'll be able to get through this one, guys.
