Review: All The Missing Girls by Megan Miranda

All The Missing Girls by Megan Miranda
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Release Date: June 28, 2016
Book Format: Paperback
# of Pages: 384
Like the spellbinding psychological suspense in The Girl on the Train and Luckiest Girl Alive, Megan Miranda’s novel is a nail-biting, breathtaking story about the disappearances of two young women—a decade apart—told in reverse.

It’s been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared from Cooley Ridge without a trace. Back again to tie up loose ends and care for her ailing father, Nic is soon plunged into a shocking drama that reawakens Corinne’s case and breaks open old wounds long since stitched.

The decade-old investigation focused on Nic, her brother Daniel, boyfriend Tyler, and Corinne’s boyfriend Jackson. Since then, only Nic has left Cooley Ridge. Daniel and his wife, Laura, are expecting a baby; Jackson works at the town bar; and Tyler is dating Annaleise Carter, Nic’s younger neighbor and the group’s alibi the night Corinne disappeared. Then, within days of Nic’s return, Annaleise goes missing.

Told backwards—Day 15 to Day 1—from the time Annaleise goes missing, Nic works to unravel the truth about her younger neighbor’s disappearance, revealing shocking truths about her friends, her family, and what really happened to Corinne that night ten years ago.

Like nothing you’ve ever read before, All the Missing Girls delivers in all the right ways. With twists and turns that lead down dark alleys and dead ends, you may think you’re walking a familiar path, but then Megan Miranda turns it all upside down and inside out and leaves us wondering just how far we would be willing to go to protect those we love.

My Review:  
I bought this with my own money and this is my honest review.

I started reading Megan Miranda with her first few young adult novels and from there I fell in love. All The Missing Girls is her first fiction novel telling the story of a women returning back to her hometown to help her brother take care of their father when their past comes back to haunt them.

This book is written backwards; the first few chapters were the present while the rest of the book was told backwards from that point. It blew my mind really to be watching a story unfold backwards but it made me that much more invested into the story of the missing girls and I found myself not being able to put the book down. There were two missing girls cases intertwined within this story which made it that much more gripping. If you weren’t trying to figure out what happened to the first missing girl you were collecting clues about the second and trying to go from there. It was a non stop thriller.

Another plot point that I really enjoyed was the family aspect. I have a really close relationship with my brother and to see the strained relationship between Nic and Daniel was extremely gripping. Half the time when I should have been more interested in the disappearances of the two girls I was more interested in trying to understand what was going on between brother and sister.

I also found myself shipping Nic and Tyler more than her own fiance which probably wasn’t very good, but I couldn’t help it considering how the book was written.

It’s hard to say much else without giving away clues so all I will say is the plot was fantastic as were the characters and I recommend this 100 percent
