 My Review
I suppose I'm not really sure what to make of this book for the pure and simple fact that it was grippoing in so many ways. No, structurally it was not the best book that I have ever read, but at the same time each page was a page turner that you didn't want to end because you just had to know what was going to happen, how it was going to happen and what would come of it all. Yes the plot of this book was different and engaging and it just made you think about what happens to those who do go missing and are never found, where do they go, what happens to their bodies, and when and why do we stop searching. Yes, this book has a huge entitiy of mystery to it that makes it a little something different, a little something edge that you just want to read into, to understand and relate to. the lines are passionate and you could really get to grips with the main characters here.

Kendall was someone that I could very identify with for the fact that a lot of us do have those OCD tendancies, and in times of stress we let them out and run wild because that seems to be the best thing to do. Yet it seemed to me that a lot of pressure was placed on her shoulders because she seemed to have a lot to go through and to handle and deal with. the experience that she had to live with just seemed to send a shiver down my spine, so of course you could say that the book had the perfect creepy tone to it, because it just represented everything that the book was about. Lisa Mcmann is on my top ten favorite authors simply because she writes with this simplicity but she writes with passion and you can feel it from her words. 

didn't like it it was ok liked it really liked it it was amazing
