Publisher's Summary

Dara and Nick used to be inseparable, but that was before - before Dara kissed Parker, before Nick lost him as her best friend, before the accident that left Dara's beautiful face scarred. Now the two sisters, who used to be so close, aren't speaking. In an instant Nick lost everything and is determined to use the summer to get it all back.

But Dara has other plans. When she vanishes on her birthday, Nick thinks Dara is just playing around. But another girl has vanished, too - nine-year-old Madeline Snow - and as Nick pursues her sister, she becomes increasingly convinced that the two disappearances may be linked.

In this edgy and compelling novel, New York Times best-selling author Lauren Oliver creates a world of intrigue, loss, and suspicion as two sisters search to find themselves and each other.

    Story
    "Not even close to as good as her other books"
    Any additional comments?

    Not up to par with Lauren Oliver's other books. The story was boring until the final chapter which had a twist but didn't make up for the lack of story to that point. I'm a huge fan of the Delerium series and highly recommend all 3 of those books but wouldn't waste a credit on this one.

    Story
    "Do Not Get This"

    The story starts out interestingly enough but never rises above an R rated YA novel. About half way through you'll probably start thinking, "This isn't one of those book where it turns out..." but you'll say, "No Way! That plot twist has been done to death." So you'll keep reading and discover IT IS.

    The plot twist/surprise ending is totally lame. Save your time and money. Just watch an episode of Law and Order because even they had an episode with this played out premise.

    "this story lacked something"

    I really kept hoping it was gonna get better pick up a little but it never did. The authors attempt at a twist fell flat because the story itself lacked depth.

    "Hard to get into"

    This book was hard to get into. I had trouble following the story and at the end once all the pieces came together, I still didn't get the story.

    "Great Story"

    I loved the storyline and the characters. I was worried at first because I didn't really like the way the author tried connect to millennials with awkwardly placed social media references. In the end, the story twist made up for it!

    Story
    "Confusing"

    I listened to this whole book while being confused, until the last couple of chapters. I had to go back and listen to it again, and still I'm kind of confused, but it's still a good book. I like this author, and I do like how she wrote this book with a mixture of perspectives and magazine articles. The voice speaker for "Nick" in the story sometimes sounds like she's talking through gritted teeth, or like she's severely angry/annoyed. Sometimes it was hard to listen to.

    Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.

    Story
    "The twist was more like a fizzle"

    I have a serious love/hate relationship with this author. I loved Before I Fall and the Delirium Trilogy but hated Panic and was seriously disappointed with Vanishing Girls. The plot twist in this book was so contrived that I saw it coming from a mile away. These sort of gimmicks rarely work and in this case it was an epic fail.
