But will she realize she's unknowingly playing a part in an elaborate game to cover up a crime before it's too late?"
I love books what keep me guessing as a mystery is being solved. And I love when I never know who I can fully trust. Girl Last Seen gave me both of those! In the search for what happened to Kadence leads are created, destroyed, and news once found. Each time I thought - I got it! I know what's going to happen. And each time I was wrong! And trust me this went on right up until the very end of the story! Ok, so I had a tish figured out here and there, but I never fully trusted that I did.
I do have to tell you - I really really really did not like Kadence! She was (in my mind) not a nice person. You find out so much about her as Lauren digs to find out what happened. People from both girls' past share their experiences and often times I was left thinking "Wow!". Now of course as Lauren digs, you begin to question what you know - or thought you knew. Are you right? Can you trust this person or that? That's the type of book that I love because I want to keep reading to see if I'm right - to see what turn it will take next! And with that Girl Last Seen did not disappoint.
I don't want to say much more in fear of giving anything away! So in the end - if you like a good mystery check this one out. It may keep you guessing as much as it did me!
