Good. I had some trouble following the timeline, but it didn‘t mess me up. E. Lockhart is the perfect cover blurber. If the premise interests you, go for it. You‘re safe for a solid read. :)

This book was ok. I got really confused at the end, and had to reread the last few chapters to catch and understand the book.
I did enjoy it, but would not have picked it up myself.
I am done early this month! @whippoorwill815

🔆 #KindleDeal Alert 🔆 - I read #VanishingGirls by #LaurenOliver a couple years ago and enjoyed it.

Blurb: When Dara vanishes on her birthday, her sister, Nick, thinks she is playing around. But another girl, 9 y.o. Madeline, has vanished, too, and Nick becomes convinced that the two disappearances are linked. Oliver creates a world of intrigue, loss, and suspicion in this #YA thriller as two sisters search to find themselves, and each other.

This is a solid book. I was really captured in the story and didn't see the plot coming. But what really annoyed me was the lovestory in it - I'm just fed up at this point. (We really need more YA novels that aren't focusing on love stories, PLEASE.)

YA psychological thriller.

Good girl Nicole (Nick) and her wild younger sister Dara are both unlikeable. Dara is constantly getting in trouble and Nick feels responsible and resentful for bailing her out.
A serious car accident leaves Dara permanently disfigured and Nick unable to forgive herself.

When Dara disappears, Nick is determined to find her.

And there‘s a twist ending that may seem very familiar.

I found this to be very slow-moving through most of it. It was a lot of teenage girl drama that I wasn't terribly interested in. But I knew there was a twist, so I stuck with it. I did not guess the twist, so that was good. I just wish that the pace had been a little quicker throughout. ⭐⭐⭐ V for #LitsyAtoZ (only 2 left: J and Q)

#AugustGrrrl | Day 3: #PerfectIllusion | #VanishingGirls by #LaurenOliver

My rating: 3.5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️🌟- This book is a #YA #psychologicalthriller about two #sisters inexorably altered by a terrible #accident. It contains a world of intrigue, #loss, and #suspicion as the two sisters #search to find themselves, and each other. #suspenseful #quickread #YoungAdult

Cinfhen Great graphics 😍I have this one in my TBR (edited) 2y
hazelaiden I loved this book! ❤️ 2y
Jess7 Thanks @Cinfhen I can't take credit for the cool artwork (borrowed from google), only the arrangement of the pictures and design of the collage 😜🤓 This book is suspenseful and easy to read. It's definitely worth reading, but for me, (probably bc it was YA and involved teen problems), it wasn't good enough for me to rank it in the 4-5 stars range. 2y

Jess7 @hazelaiden I'm glad you enjoyed it. It's a fast-paced psychological thriller for sure. Speaking of the title "vanishing" have you read this one yet? I thought it was good and probably on the same level (but not #YA) as this one but a completely different story. (edited) 2y
hazelaiden @Jess7 I have not, but it's added to the stack! 😉 2y
Jess7 Sounds good. When you read it, let me know what you think? The Vanishing Year was fast paced (although at times a little bit unbelievable) and suspenseful. It keeps you guessing till near the end. @hazelaiden 2y
[DELETED] 206653737 I need to read this one. Will get to it one of these days. Sounds like you enjoyed it. 2y

The combination of the third person limited view point and various epistolary elements make this nonlinear story dynamic and interesting. Thought the story skips back and forth through time it is not hard to follow. I'm one of those people who prides myself on guessing the ending of the book midway through. Oliver's ending, though perfectly logical, surprised me. #girlinthetitle #litsyreadingchallenge

2? By the time I got to the "exciting" part of this book, I no longer cared about the characters. The twist was obvious. ???? I like Oliver's writing style, but I haven't cared for her plots or characters. I think this will be my last book by her.

Dara and Nick used to be inseparable, but that was before the accident that left Dara's beautiful face scarred. 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.

REALLY good book with a very unexpected plot twist ending. Never got bored. The story is told in narrative fashion
