Publisher Description

From the author of the New York Times bestseller All the Missing Girls—the gripping story of a journalist who sets out to find her missing friend, a friend who may never have existed at all. “Think: Luckiest Girl Alive, The Girl on the Train, Gone Girl” (TheSkimm).

When Leah Stevens’ career implodes, a chance meeting with her old friend Emmy Grey offers her the perfect opportunity to start over. Emmy, just out of a bad relationship, convinces Leah to come live with her in rural Pennsylvania, where there are teaching positions available and no one knows Leah’s past.

Or Emmy’s.

When the town sees a spate of vicious crimes and Emmy Grey disappears, Leah begins to realize how very little she knows about her friend and roommate. Unable to find friends, family, a paper trail or a digital footprint, the police question whether Emmy Grey existed at all. And mark Leah as a prime suspect.

Fighting the doubts of the police and her own sanity, Leah must uncover the truth about Emmy Grey—and along the way, confront her old demons, find out who she can really trust, and clear her own name.

Megan Miranda delivers a deep, dark and twisty novel just as thrilling as her New York Times bestseller All the Missing Girls.

Good not great

Definitely worth the read. It’s quick and entertaining but didn’t knock my socks off.

No Spoilers

Maybe I am just not use to Miranda's style or maybe her style is not for me, but this story was not bad nor amazing to me. The beginning seemed chaotic, possibly too fast-paced for me; The middle was where things got interesting and I started to enjoy the novel; The ending got confusing for me with so many names and events taking place. Overall, Miranda's reputation and the reviews really motivated me to finish this book, and there was a part of me that was curious how everything would tie together in the end. While it was enough to get me to finish the book relatively quickly, I am surprised at how little I enjoyed the book yet never got discouraged to finish it. With all this said, I think it is a unique plot and I definitely can still understand the hype many give this novel.

I haven’t read a Megan Miranda book that I didn’t love yet so I’m not surprised that the perfect stranger has become a new favorite! It was very suspenseful and had me begging for answers. I know some other people have criticized it saying it was too hard to follow but I LOVED it, all the twists and turns and suspense! I never know how it’s going to end and that’s why I love it.

My only complaints would be the overuse of certain metaphors and the loose ends to one of the characters (Paige). But I might have missed something. Other than that, it was a fantastic read!!
