"Bold, intriguing, and full of surprises. It's the kind of book that haunts you long after you put it down. I've read nothing like this before; a mystery to the very last page, defined by intense and tragic relationships, and warmed by the connections formed in a shared mission. I thoroughly enjoyed this." Kristen Simmons, author of "Article 5" and "The Glass Arrow"
"Endlessly twisty, this deliberate head trip will keep readers guessing until the very end. The kind of dark, wild ride that begs to read in a single sitting." Kirkus Reviews, January 1, 2016
"Intriguing form the start, this work is easy to recommend to fans of April Henry. The authors really seem to grasp the fickle and duplicitous role that the Internet plays in the lives of their target readers, and they incorporate it seamlessly into their characters' development and plotlines. A sexy, fascinating, fast-paced, and darkly dynamic mystery for teens." School Library Journal, February 2016
""Relationships between characters are potent and heartbreaking, set within scenes brimming with tension. Anastasiu and Brown roll out the plot's details using different points of view and a nonlinear plot development guaranteed to keep readers on the edge of their seats. Exhilarating and filled with twists and turns, the mystery lasts until the final page." Booklist, February 15, 2016

When Kadence disappears people assume Lauren's got something to do with it. All of a sudden she's no longer the talented YouTube star, but a girl who can't be trusted. She's a suspect in a strange case. Where is Kadence and what happened to her? Lauren has to find out the truth so she can clear her name, but evidence piles against her. Help comes from an unexpected source, Jude, the best friend she had before Kadence took his place. Can she trust him to actually help her just like that and can he trust her?
Girl Last Seen is a gripping read about two girls who have a complicated history together. They used to be a big hit on YouTube, but when Lauren loses her voice everything changes between them. They both have an opinion about the situation and the reader doesn't know who to trust. That was the best part of the book for me. I liked that the truth is being revealed bit by bit, clue by clue. It was like following a trace and that was fun, even though most of the topics are really serious.
I loved the easy flow and the different voices. They're all equally strong and interesting. The ending is fantastic and surprising. I think this book is absolutely fantastic. I enjoyed how the main characters all changed at some point, how they can reinvent themselves because they either want to or have to. I loved this book from the first sentence. It starts with a song, which is a strong and original opening. If you're looking for an amazing, fast-paced and thrilling YA story, get this book immediately. I'm one hundred percent sure you're going to love it.
When Kady goes missing, there is no shortage of suspects, but Lauren is a primary one because of a recent boyfriend double cross issue. All of a sudden Jude comes back into Lauren’s life. He was Nathan back when they were friends. Now he’s using his middle name, Jude. Nathan had severe acne. Lauren stood by him … until Kady ruined their friendship, even causing Lauren to harshly snub him. Jude, with the help of medicine, has overcome his acne and recovered from the physical scars. Lauren now finds him to be ‘exciting’. Can Jude help Lauren to clear the suspicion on her? She must solve the mystery of Kady’s disappearance.
This is a wonderfully twisty teen thriller (age range 14 – 18). The reader will wonder who is trustworthy; who is not? I liked the various narration shifts giving us different character perspectives. It allows us to see what each character was really thinking. Even teens can pretend to like someone. The author has constructed characters that are both likable and abhorrent. They are, by no means, cut and dry. However, a portion of the novel does require the reader to suspend believability.
