All the Missing Girls

All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda.

Paperback: 400 pages
Publisher: Simon & Schuster(January 31, 2017)
ISBN-10: 1501107976


 

Amazon Review:

Like the spellbinding psychological suspense in The Girl on the Train and Luckiest Girl Alive, Megan Miranda’s novel is a nail-biting, breathtaking story about the disappearances of two young women—a decade apart—told in reverse.
It’s been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared from Cooley Ridge without a trace. Back again to tie up loose ends and care for her ailing father, Nic is soon plunged into a shocking drama that reawakens Corinne’s case and breaks open old wounds long since stitched.
The decade-old investigation focused on Nic, her brother Daniel, boyfriend Tyler, and Corinne’s boyfriend Jackson. Since then, only Nic has left Cooley Ridge. Daniel and his wife, Laura, are expecting a baby; Jackson works at the town bar; and Tyler is dating Annaleise Carter, Nic’s younger neighbor and the group’s alibi the night Corinne disappeared. Then, within days of Nic’s return, Annaleise goes missing.
Told backwards—Day 15 to Day 1—from the time Annaleise goes missing, Nic works to unravel the truth about her younger neighbor’s disappearance, revealing shocking truths about her friends, her family, and what really happened to Corinne that night ten years ago.
Like nothing you’ve ever read before, All the Missing Girls delivers in all the right ways. With twists and turns that lead down dark alleys and dead ends, you may think you’re walking a familiar path, but then Megan Miranda turns it all upside down and inside out and leaves us wondering just how far we would be willing to go to protect those we love.


 

Interesting.

That's the word for this book.  I did enjoy learning about the group of friends and how rumors can be so detrimental. (Something I already knew, but brought it back to the front of my mind)

A few times I felt somewhat lost but did pick it up again. I guess my "pea brain" didn't want to "go backwards" lol. 

I, myself don't think I'd want to relive a really bad time in my life, and I honestly couldn't tell if it was "freeing" or not for those involved in the book.  However, I do think I could still recommend giving this a go.  Not a bad read at all.

Not great when books remind you so strongly of bad times. Glad you managed to enjoy this one though, Pat.
