Marcie - Carly M. Duncan Marcie is a very quick read. Coming in at 136 pages, I was able to read it in an afternoon I was really captivated by the synopsis and I was expecting a good mystery Unfortunately, I did not get what I was hoping for. The story was just OK. I kept waiting for something to happen, but nothing really does. The "secrets" weren't all that exciting. I didn't care for the ending at all and felt cheated with the end. My actual reaction, was, "Wait, what?"

I guess in the end I wanted more from the book. It felt more like an outline and needed more meat to the story. The synopsis was very misleading. Instead of a mystery, I read a rambling story of a girl who is neglected by her parents but ends up with a pretty decent life in the end. If you go into the book with that in mind, I think you will enjoy it more than I did.
