A MISSING DAUGHTER. EVERY MOTHER'S WORST NIGHTMARE.
SHE'S NOT WHERE I LEFT HER
'Don't look away, you won't want to miss a thing!' J.T. Ellison
When Whitney drops her teenage daughter, Amelia, off at a sleepover at a friend's house, she has no idea that her entire life is about to irrevocably change.
Because the next morning, when Whitney returns to pick up Amelia, an elderly woman answers the door. She's never seen or heard of Amelia and she lives in this house alone with her husband. It's every mother's worst nightmare, but this time there's no waking up from it.
Distraught and terrified, as Whitney tries to get to the bottom of her daughter's disappearance, she is forced to confront the secrets she thought she had outrun years before. With time running out to find Amelia, Whitney is forced to journey to the darkest parts of her history and piece together a puzzle that will be the difference between Amelia's life and her death.
At the start of this stellar psychological thriller from Garza (When I Was You), divorc e Whitney drops off her 16-year-old daughter, Amelia, for a sleepover in front of the house of Amelia's friend Lauren. Whitney was hoping to walk Amelia to the door and introduce herself to Lauren's mother, but the moody, distant Amelia wouldn't let her. The next morning, when Whitney arrives to pick up Amelia, the elderly couple who answer the door insist there's no teenager inside and no teenager lives with them. Whitney's subsequent search for Amelia raises issues from Whitney's past, in particular the reasons for her divorce, and she discovers her new boyfriend is not the man she thinks he is. Meanwhile, an initially unidentified teenage girl writes in her diary about a friend named Millie, with whom the girl has an obsessive relationship and who sets her on a path she wishes she hadn't taken. The tension builds as the perfectly orchestrated story lines converge in a truly surprising ending. This is impossible to put down.
