review 1: this book is great. i loved it so much. the only reason that i gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is that it gets really confusing at the end, and i had to read one of the last chapters 3 times before i understood what was happening. this book is a psychological thriller and will have you glued to its pages from the very start. this book follows the journey of Lauren who started being able to see dead and/or missing girls, and these girls wanted her help in finding them and finally giving their families closure. The only thing that these girls have in common though is that they are all 17 years old. my favorite part of the book is the last few chapters where there is so much action and stuff happening that it's almost hard to keep up with.
review 2: I thought this book
... more was a really great book, but I didn't agree with the ending. i didn't agree with the ending because her mum took her to the doctors because of all of her visions, even though if it wasn't for her visions, then they wouldn't have saved the lives of some of he girls in this book. When Lauren was diagnosed with Schizophrenia, she suddenly lost track of her visions, and she started to think that Ghosts/Spirits don' exist, or anything spiritual, but that is wrong. It is wrong because we aren't in a physical world. We just think that we are. Everything we see, touch, taste, feel, and smell is all an illusion, because we and everything else is all made up of Atoms, and if everything is made up of atoms, then it is really obvious that i's possible for anything to happen, because the atoms could suddenly change. Just because someone is diagnosed with Schizophrenia, and they think they see things that aren't there, doesn't mean there isn't anything spiritual that is there. less

I made a GoodReads account just to express how bad this book was.
A very original and thoughtful mystery; a great read.
Couldn't get into it; did not finish
Sad in ways, but rings true.
