review 1: I’ve read most if not all of Unger’s books and this is another in the same vein. I got it at a discount book shop where it had “Stellar read” on the cover, and this about covers it. Part Jodie Picoult family tensions, part crime thriller, it provides quick engagement and is easy reading. There are father-son tensions across a couple of families and generations, teenage angst and a dose of mother-son idealism and mother-daughter tension. Set in upstate New York (or maybe Connecticut) in a small town there’s a missing girl and in the process of trying to find out what happened to her, another missing girl story from a generation earlier surfaces with all its secrets. You don’t want to put it down, but it also ultimately won’t be one I reme... morember.
review 2: This was my first Lisa Unger book and I loved the plot. It ended up being a story for me about choices. About how just one thing that you do in your life can change the whole course of history for yourself and may even ripple into the future of others. Even something that may be meant as harmless fun can have serious consequences. The teenagers of this story were all connected to the teenagers of a past tragedy and it seems like history was repeating itself all over again. I found this to be a fast engaging read and look forward to reading more of Lisa Ungers books. A definite page turner! less
