Publisher Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

From the New York Times bestselling author of Invisible Girl and The Truth About Melody Browne comes a “riveting” (PopSugar) and “acutely observed family drama” (People) that delves into the lingering aftermath of a young girl’s disappearance.

Ellie Mack was the perfect daughter. She was fifteen, the youngest of three. Beloved by her parents, friends, and teachers, and half of a teenaged golden couple. Ellie was days away from an idyllic post-exams summer vacation, with her whole life ahead of her.

And then she was gone.

Now, her mother Laurel Mack is trying to put her life back together. It’s been ten years since her daughter disappeared, seven years since her marriage ended, and only months since the last clue in Ellie’s case was unearthed. So when she meets an unexpectedly charming man in a café, no one is more surprised than Laurel at how quickly their flirtation develops into something deeper. Before she knows it, she’s meeting Floyd’s daughters—and his youngest, Poppy, takes Laurel’s breath away.

Because looking at Poppy is like looking at Ellie. And now, the unanswered questions she’s tried so hard to put to rest begin to haunt Laurel anew. Where did Ellie go? Did she really run away from home, as the police have long suspected, or was there a more sinister reason for her disappearance? Who is Floyd, really? And why does his daughter remind Laurel so viscerally of her own missing girl?

Great read!

Fascinating story! I couldn’t stop reading!

Slow getting into

This book wasn’t like the typical books I’m used to reading. The kind that grab your attention from the jump. The first half of the book is spent telling everyone’s story, in a way. I actually almost stopped reading it but had heard so many good things, so I kept on.
LISTEN. I am SO glad I did. Once I got to all the twist and turns (about halfway in), the slow first half actually made sense. I am so glad that I didn’t give up on this book.
It was literally jaw dropping, as it hits you with the most twisted unexpected ending. Even once you think you’ve got it figured out. If you find yourself wondering if you should read it or if you’re debating on quitting the book because of how slow the book starts.. READ THE BOOK. You won’t regret it
