I need to add before you read on and want to burn me at the stake afterwards, that this has spoilers and lots of honest opinions.
This is unique in the fact the story is told backwards, so I was prepared to have to work a little harder but quite excited to spot clues and see the mystery unfold but I needn't had bothered. It was a laborious read due to the author taking way to much time to construct a feel of the place of Cooley Ridge, which failed. I felt as a reader I didn't need it as much as I needed to know the characters, which were not constructed well either. They were plain, boring and had no edge to them, no distinctive characteristics to tell them apart, no drive, no reason to have been there at all and the character telling the story was nowhere near engaging or likeable at all.
The first missing girl, Corrine, was slowly revealed throughout the chapters but the picture painted was with weak watercolours not bold, sassy or convincing at all to paint a dramatic picture of this girl/ teenager who, apparently, had power over them all in various ways. You never got near, as a reader, feeling that heartbeat of fear, angst or willing the character in any way at all as the story unfolded.
The second missing girl was portrayed as a stalkerish type of girl turned blackmailer, this didn't work at all and was slightly baffling, she came out of nowhere and drove the rest of the book, in a strange pointless way.
Apart from the construct of the novel, what else drew me, was what initially drew Nicolette ( back to the place she detests) was a note from her father so I was fixed on this aspect but this produced nothing really and don't even start on the waste of a character in Nicolette's fiance, pointless really to have him there at all. There was no frisson of excitement between Nicolette and her old sweetheart, Tyler, nothing, not even palatable hatred between her and her brother Daniel, which apparently there should be?
The ending was what killed it for me completely. WWF? It completely lost plot, direction and clarity.
Maybe if she hadn't written it backwards it would have read better. But I can only describe the half of the book I dragged myself to read as painful
