I read this after reading Girl Gone. This book is brilliant. It's about a journalist (Camille) who is forced back to her home town to cover a story about missing girls. She has to deal with people from her childhood who stayed in the town and didn't really change. Her mother is and has always been distant towards her but this might have something to do with the attention her mother craves. I thought this was covered so well. Camille doesn't quite believe what she sees but ends up very sick just to satisfy her suspicions.
Her 13 year old sister is a real character. At first you think she's just a bit spoilt but there is a lot more to her than that. She also craves attention and will remove anyone who gets in her way. It was quite a disturbing book to read because there is no drama and fireworks just a well written story about the family left behind. I couldn't put this down. It pulls you in and doesn't let go. You know what's happening and you want to look away but can't!
