Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of Reconstructing Amelia comes a fast-paced teen series where one girl learns that in a world of intrigue, betrayal, and deeply buried secrets, it is vital to trust your instincts.

It all starts with a text: Please, Wylie, I need your help. Wylie hasn't heard from Cassie in over a week, not since their last fight. But that doesn't matter. Cassie's in trouble, so Wylie decides to do what she has done so many times before: save her best friend from herself.

This time it's different, though. Instead of telling Wylie where she is, Cassie sends cryptic clues. And instead of having Wylie come by herself, Jasper shows up saying Cassie sent him to help. Trusting the guy who sent Cassie off the rails doesn't feel right, but Wylie has no choice but to ignore her gut instinct and go with him.

But figuring out where Cassie is goes from difficult to dangerous - fast. As Wylie and Jasper head farther and farther north into the dense woods of Maine, Wylie struggles to control her growing sense that something is really wrong. What isn't Cassie telling them? And could finding her be only the beginning?

In this breakneck tale, New York Times best-selling author Kimberly McCreight brilliantly chronicles a fateful journey that begins with a single decision - and ends up changing everything.

    Story
    "Poorly written, not for adults"

    Poorly written suspense novel that is reflective of the over inflated "self" among Millenials. The protagonist exhibits a number of unattractive qualities that all justified in the end because she finds out that she is different. The characters react in dramatic and over confidant manners that are typical of over entitled teenagers.

    Story does pick two third way through in terms of the suspense and pace, but ending doesn't fail to disappoint again as unbelievable.

    "Confusion at its best"

    I kept listening to this book in hopes that SOMETHING would make sense. Even until the very last word... I'm still confused!

    "Terrible"

    I can't believe anyone would give this book a good review! It was so slow from the start and the ending was terrible. I love the characters and the narrators interpretation but the storyline is hard to follow and is all over the place. It was hard to follow and I had to skip back in order to figure out what was going on. I felt like I was listening to a bad Stephen King novel. It was definitely not worth the money....very disappointed

    "Not her best"

    I loved Reconstructing Amelia and Where They Found Her was great as well so maybe my expectations were set a bit high. this book had a diffrent feel to it and it just felt like it was missing a few chapters. The end makes it seem that there is more to come, not sure if that's been confirmed, but I would read it hoping to feel in some gaps.

    "Started off ok, but then just painful"

    The beginning of this book started off ok - lots of suspense. But, as soon as what an outlier is was revealed, it just got super painful and repetitive. I would not recommend this book if you prefer books that are well-written (i.e. not trite, not tell-y vs. show-y).

    "Confused!?"

    The main character did not address a lot of her own questions leaving the reader frustrated and confused.

    Story
    "Horrible Audio Narrator"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator. Don't they have a mute button or something so I don't have to hear her licking her lips/opening her dry mouth/taking a drink?!?!?!


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Mute button for narrator


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator ruined this story. Everytime I had to hear her open her dry mouth I wanted to throw my phone across the room.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.

    "Great thriller!"

    This book was really interesting from the beginning to the end. I couldn't stop listening. I did, however, not fully grasp the concept that pulls the whole story line together (didn't really find it as dangerous as the book portrays), but it was still a good read. Although the characters are high school age, they were written very maturely and it was easy to relate to the main character. The details and descriptions were just enough. Not too many that you were bored, but not too little that you were left with questions. It was definitely entertaining.
