The Year We Disappeared

Post by 133749 on Thu Sep 10, 2009 6:08 pm

The Year We Disappeared

authors: Cyclin and John Busby

genre: nonfiction? (on amazon.com it says fiction AND nonfiction Razz) sounds like nonfiction to me.

Before August 31, 1979, nine-year-old Cylinís biggest worry was avoiding her grumpy neighbor. Then her familyís life changed forever when her father, a Cape Cod policeman, was shot on his drive to work. Horribly injured, with most of his lower jaw blown away, John Busby somehow managed to stop his car and run for help. Although John was convinced he knew his attackerís identity, the investigation mysteriously stalled, and the Busby family was given 24-hour protection during the long experimental effort to reconstruct Johnís face. Eventually the family went into hiding, starting over in another state. In alternating chapters, John and Cylin Busby tell the story of Johnís ordeal and the devastating impact on his family. Johnís laconic, just-the-facts-maíam style underscores the horror he was enduring, while Cylinís perspective drives home the fear and emotional misery the family suffered. The appalling physical injuries may deter the squeamish, but this riveting story will stay with readers, particularly its message that Johnís anger and desire for revenge were the hardest wounds to heal.
