Publisher's Summary

A mother will risk everything to find her missing daughter in this twisty thriller from the author of Girl Gone Mad.

“Sometimes teenagers run away...Give her a few days. She’ll be back.”

That’s what the police tell Jessica Moore when her seventeen-year-old daughter, Wyn, vanishes. All signs point to this being true. But days become weeks. Weeks become months. And Jessica begins to fear the terrible truth - that she may never see her daughter again.

Then, one year later, when all hope seems lost, Jessica gets a flurry of text messages from Wyn that freeze her blood: mom. please help. i think he’s going to kill me. But Wyn’s terrified plea comes with a warning not to call the police. Her kidnapper wears a badge.

As Jessica’s fears are raised again, so are the stakes. Delving into the months leading up to Wyn’s disappearance, Jessica stumbles upon information that could put her own life in danger. With each revelation, the nightmare deepens. Now she must decide just how far she’ll go to bring her daughter home.

Waaaaaait! Listen to the Sample!

I rarely write reviews, and I listen to multiple books a week. Admittedly, a book has to be wonderful or terrible to take the time to review it. Even then, I won’t give a narrator bad ratings solely because I hated the story. In this book, both were absolutely dreadful. Terrible. For one, there are no redeeming characters in the story (sorry if that was a spoiler). Two, if there is a plot to this book, I’m not sure what it was. Then, the narrator sounds like the cliché “blonde”, “ditzy” “valley girl” and her sound alone portrays women as being absolute airheads. I would say this book was designed for a YA demographic, but I’m not sure that it was. It’s rife with profanity (and I’m not a prude, I’m just saying maybe the author wasn’t intending it for teens?) ok, by this point (if you’re still reading this), you’re like, okay, we get it, you didn’t like the book. No, that’s not good enough. I truly admire the skill it takes for any author to write a novel, but honestly, I don’t know who reads this, and when they’re finished thinks to themselves, ok, now let’s publish this.

Audible/Kindle: Please never recommend a book to me written by this author or narrator ever again. I’m grateful I took the time to write this review as it will prevent me from additional agony in the future.

Good book

This was a pretty good book. It was worth the credit. I’m irritated though that someone put a spoiler in the reviews and I knew how things would end up with WYN. They should monitor the reviews better

Not really a review…

Because I haven’t finished, however, 10 chapters in there are details that the author got wrong those niggle me. If they don’t bother you… then you won’t have an issue but they do bother me because it makes me wonder how many other things are going to be implausible or just plain wrong?
The daughter was thought to run away but no activity on her debit card. So their
(Law enforcement) idea was she went to a convenience store bought a pack of gum and got 100 cash back. I don’t know of a convenience store that will give you 100 dollars for a purchase that small not to mention IT WILL STILL APPEAR ON THE BANK STATEMENT. The entire idea was the girl was so smart she avoided activity on her card. 100 cash back at 7-11 will appear as that plus there are security cameras in every convenience store.
It’s silly and takes away from the authenticity. Authors do you not live in the same world as us regular people? Sigh….

YA?

I bought this book because of all the good reviews but my opinion is that this book was awful. Maybe not so much if you were a teenager or something but when I spend my one credit a month on a book I would like for it to have a little bit more meat on its bones. First off it was way way too long, and all the female voices sound like cartoon chipmunks, just awful. And the lead character in this book was so annoying and rude and a know it all I found very hard to get into this story. But since I already paid for it I figured I may as well choke it down. So no I would not recommend this book to anybody it was sophomoric.

Wow!❤️

I was super reluctant to try this book because there wasn’t any reviews yet. Brittney Presley is one of my favorite narrators, so I gave it a shot. I struggled to STOP listening to this book. Loved this book and I was sad it ended. There’s a twist at the end that I never saw coming!!!

Another knock-out performance by both of them.

A great story, with a lot of twists and turns, which seems to be the author's bread and butter. A bit disappointed, was hoping Wyn would be found alive, but I did love how everything fell into place. Brittany Pressley is one of my favorite audio book narrators, and she's at the top of her game here, bringing the right emotion to her performance as all characters.

Lots of unexpected twist and turns!

This is the first book I have read by the author and it won’t be the last! There were so many twists and turns at the end that were unexpected it really made some of the slow areas worth it! There were only a few places in this book that kind of dragged along. It was definitely worth the credit. You couldn’t help but cry for Jessica and you could really feel the pain of some of the other characters. There is also some bullying in here, but it’s not really seriously bad all the time. All in all, it is a wonderful book! Give it a try! It is worth the credit!

great surprise!

I wasn't sure what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. the narration was great, interesting characters and the story was engaging. I'm a sticker for a plot twist and unexpected endings and this had it! so good.
