Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver
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.
In this edgy and compelling novel, Lauren Oliver creates a world of intrigue, loss, and suspicion as two sisters search to find themselves, and each other.
Another week another book that I really don't want to review. Not because it is bad but because it is so so good and I don't want to spoil it for anyone. It is exactly what I expected from Lauren Oliver. It was an interesting and completely absorbing read that I couldn't put down. I really enjoyed getting to know the characters and seeing the mystery surrounding the accident unfold as the book went on. The ending in particular really was very good indeed.Yes that's all incredibly vague but believe me once you've read it you'll be glad I was.
