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
    "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.

    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.

    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
    "How did this come from this author?"

    I fell in love with Lauren Oliver from her trilogy. Can't even figure out how this book happened. It was painful! I am one of those people that keeps hanging on until the end. I keep thinking a horrible movie or book HAS to get better. Not so here.

    One of the main characters is so unlikable, you just don't care what happens to her, partly because it is sooooooo drug out. It jumps all over, in a bad way. A missing girl turns up to be hiding on a beach under a tarp because she was scared? Of what? No one was keeping her. She saw something scary. Yes, then she could have just walked to a road, but chose not to. No explanation for that. That's just stupid.
    A teenage love triangle is mangled into something uninteresting.
    And the main plot makes WILD leaps of logic to get where its going, which is then treated like an epilogue its so brief. Girl goes to police for help, then runs when they show up? In one scene, the character is frightened by a sound knowing someone is there. Yet the bad guy catches her off guard when he finds her? What? She was hiding from him!
    Then comes the REAL punchline, which is not even logical. Is this an excuse for the entire book? There are way too many things earlier in the book that make it not possible. Ugh!

    Skip this one. I'm afraid to try another book by Lauren. Maybe if this one was her first. The release date on Audible doesn't seem like it, but maybe they just waited to produce it until she proved popular. No matter, they should have skipped it.

    "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.

    "Bad storyline, good review"

    First chapter is good. Last chapter is good. The rest is just so boring and drags on and on. Wouldn't recommend.

    "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.
