"Gone in a Flash" by Emily Thomas

About this book:

  “When Anne finds a roll of undeveloped film in an old camera of her great-aunt Edie's and has it processed, she makes a startling discovery. Anne's father's cousin Carl was reported killed in action in Vietnam in 1970. So how is it possible that he is standing next to Aunt Edie in a photograph taken at the bicentennial celebration in Washington, DC?
  While digging through the newly revealed family photographs and the storehouse of albums and scrapbooks in the library's vast attic, Anne and her parents decide to put together a family reunion as well as an exhibit of Aunt Edie's photography of Bill Hill and beyond. In their search for answers to the mystery of Cousin Carl, what other family secrets will be exposed?”

My personal Rating-
As a photographer, I found this one to be really interesting! I did get a bit confused on who-was-who and how everyone was related, but I think I also could have tried a bit harder, to be honest. Like always, I love the cover to this book as well with all the details and really enjoyed the story inside! :)

See y’all on Monday with a new review!
