Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Once again, I could not put down Lauren Oliver's book. Nick and Dara are sisters and have always been close. Even though Dara is one year younger, she has always hung out with Nick and their best friend/neighbor, Parker. But Dara and Nick were always very different; Nick being more reserved compared to Dara's wild nonconforming ways. And their closeness really suffers when Dara and Parker become an item. And the car accident where Nick and Dara slam into a wall. I loved how Oliver's chapters were told from Nick and Dara's POV and Before and After. When a nine year old girl disappears and then Dara does too; Nick unearths evidence the disappearances may be linked. With mind bending suspense, Oliver has written a challenging story about truth, jealousy, love, and sisters. And for a great interview from Lauren Oliver, read this from The Guardian - http://www.theguardian.com/childrens-...
