All The Missing Girls
Summary: 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.
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
This is a book that made Katie @ Doing Dewey’s Futuristic Friday list and when I saw it- I was so intrigued that I had to check it out.
The concept of this book- told from Day 15 to Day 1 really intrigued me, I must say. And for the most part it worked- I would have to be careful with noting what day we were on, etc, but that was for me!
What I liked:
The cover. Dark. Thrilling. I will never look at a Ferris Wheel without thinking of this book again.
The set-up. It was bold. I liked how Megan laid the story out.
The friendship between Nic and Corrinne. Intense friendships usually make for the best stories. This was no exception.
Final thoughts: I’m not going to compare it to the big thriller books of late. It’s not like those exactly and with Megan’s style of story- she’s in a category of her own. Highly recommending!
