New York Times bestselling author Lauren Oliver delivers a gripping story about two sisters inexorably altered by a terrible accident.
Dara and Nick used to be inseparable, but that was before the accident that left Dara's beautiful face scarred and the two sisters totally estranged. When Dara vanishes on her birthday, Nick thinks Dara is just playing around. But another girl, nine-year-old Madeline Snow, has vanished, too, and Nick becomes increasingly convinced that the two disappearances are linked. Now Nick has to find her sister, before it's too late.
In this edgy and compelling novel, Lauren Oliver creates a world of intrigue, loss, and suspicion as two sisters search to find themselves, and each other.

Superb teen thriller!
Oliver does a superb job of setting this mysterious teen thriller. The story is woven with eerie images and haunting clues. The characters are real enough, their voices distinct and leading. I couldn't put this one down, reading it within a day. I do have to admit I had the mystery figured out halfway through the book, but the unveiling of it still held some surprises. The jumping around between dates and points of views was a little confusing in the beginning but as I became wrapped up in the story it was easier to follow. A great book to read on a dreary, dark day!
Clever story. A story with many layers. A story about change, loss, and separation.

Parker, Nick, and Dara are friends.
Everyone can find something to relate to in this story since it deals with change.
It is an intriguing story about loss and separation. The story is full of mystery.
I'm searching for the hidden meaning behind the lies. This means something. The story is leading to something that is going to shock me.
I'm reading at a rapid pace trying to get the answers I've been waiting to discover.
A game. Desperate for attention. Disappearing to see who comes looking.
A place to forget your problems for the day. Many layers built into the story.
This story is hard to summarize because in order to do so would mean giving away parts of the story. I don't want to reveal any spoilers so I'm just going to say that's is a cleverly crafted story that unfolded slowly. Pay attention to the dates. Take notes of the before and after. Remember which POV you are reading. Stay focused on the clues. Most importantly free your mind and let yourself absorb the beauty of the words written.
The story has many layers. The town searching for Madeline. Nick working at FanLand. The car accident. The parents divorced. Dara sneaking out to party.
All important layers that help build the foundation for the mindset of Nicole and all the changes she encountered.
