Vanishing Girls

Dara and Nick used to be inseparable, but that was before the accident that left Dara’s beautiful face scarred and the two sisters totally estranged. When Dara vanishes on her birthday, Nick thinks Dara is just playing around. But another girl, nine-year-old Madeline Snow, has vanished, too, and Nick becomes increasingly convinced that the two disappearances are linked. Now Nick has to find her sister, before it’s too late.

I KNOW I KNOW I KNOW. You guys, how many times do I say–ALWAYS write the review immediately after the book? I screwed up, ok? It was a beautiful weekend, and we were out on the patio, and I forgot my notebook. Nobody’s perfect.

This was my first Lauren Oliver. HOW? I really thought I’d read her previously to this, but I guess not. Anyway, I’m a bit of a mixed bag of feelings. The story that sort of steady, fun thriller pace that I enjoy. I was constantly entertained, and I read this fairly quickly. I was engaged with the characters through most of the book.

Unfortunately, I found the ending to be very predictable. Maybe it’s because of my prominent choice of reading material, but it just wasn’t a surprise to me. Still, I do feel it was the natural course of the story, and a good choice by the author. I am still very anxious to read more by her.
