    “Shift” is a story about two best friends Chris and Win biking across the country, which Win disappeared in the journey. Jennifer Bradbury made the characters seem absolutely realistic and did a very great job on the development of Chris realizing the truth about his friend Win. I really liked this book because I can relate to Chris’s feelings and thoughts, and it seemed as if I was helping him put the pieces of the puzzle together by reading the book. I could say that “Shift” is one of the engrossing and captivating mysteries that I ever read.
