This book is a heart-stopping physiological thriller. When the book starts off, you can already feel the high tensions and emotions that are present, and as the book continues the feelings climax alongside the story. The story is based on a missing girl whose story has never been solved. The reason that the story is so enthralling is due to the fact that each section of the book is from a different character's perspective, giving the book more depth and allowing you to take in all sides of the story.
