Sam is a pastor's kid, which means a lot of things in the small town of Pineview. One
thing it means is that her mom always has to seem perfect, and she turned to
alcohol. Another thing that means is that no one wants to be her friend because they
think she will tell her dad about what they do. Sam is overall, really lost when her
mom has to go to rehab for her drinking and she is even more lost when a girl that
goes to her church goes missing. Sam is really confused in this messy time of her life
and all she wants is to be found.

This book was okay. I felt the plot and storyline wasn’t really there. There could have
been a lot more going on, which I was waiting for and it never came. I did appreciate
that the title tied in with the book and was easy to understand why it was named
how it was. This was a Christian missing person book, but it just didn’t hit the
expectations I had for it. Overall, it isn't my favorite book but it was readable.
