Well, Megan Miranda, you did it. You wrote a mystery book from every angle and created a tale that kept me entranced.
This novel follows Leah, a journalist running from a story that went wrong in Boston, and found the perfect place to go to when her former roommate Emmy turns up in a bar just when she needs her two. Leah now works as a school teacher, but as a mysterious girl turns up beaten looking suspiciously like Leah, questions start to be asked.
And Emmy is missing.
This novel, again, follows Miranda’s style from All the Missing Girls in that this is a somewhat linear story, that jumps back to a few past states. Miranda doesn’t give is all the information at once, or even when we want it, but when Leah thinks about it. As Leah comes to understand things, so do we.
The way this novel is written, it isn’t for everyone. This is reminiscent of the early 20th century style of writing. Nonlinear and a lot of reading between the lines. Everything isn’t spelled out for you.
But I really liked it. If you enjoy mysteries, this is the book for you. Sincerely.
