Review: 4 Stars - First - I need to say wow, what a book! It is such a thrilling mystery. It was not what I thought it'd be. Funny, because I seem to be saying that a lot lately, this just happens to be a great thing with this story.
Our main character Ellie is struggling to find out just what happened to her older sister Nina, who vanished 2 years prior. She believes her mother doesn't care and feels pretty much alone in her search. She has her best friend who goes along with things, but only to a certain point. She believes that Ellie should give up and move on, but sometimes things are easier said then done.
When they happen to find a clue about her sister, Ellie goes out of her way to find out anything and everything about what might have happened to her. She meets a stranger, Sean, a boy who seems to understand and want’s to help her find her long lost sister. As the two travel from place to place finding more clues along the way, as they search for Ellie's sister, we get to see glimpses to what just might be lurking around dark corner.
The only thing I can say that I felt confused about or even questioned was how easy Ellie just trusted and headed out on this crazy trip with a total stranger. I think maybe she just wanted her sister back so bad that she was blinded by that. I can't say anything else but good things about this book. I often felt creepy while reading it. Loved the ever twisting mysteries throughout the story that more then kept me guessing right up until the shocking end.
It's hard not to get pulled into this story, to feel for the characters - both good and bad sides, not to mention the creep factor that pushes things into shocking territory. There's a bit of just about everything in this book, all rolled into a one. I'm, without a doubt looking forward to more from this author in the future.
