All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda
Published By:
Simon and Schuster
Publication Date: June 28, 2016
Genre: Adult, Fiction/Mystery

I loved this book from the end to the beginning! This intriguing story, which kept me up until 4am because I simply couldn't put it down, is told in reverse. This is the first book I have read using this unique style. It was brilliant!  

Nicolette Farrell heads home to Cooley Ridge, North Carolina to help with her father, whose memory is slipping. Her friend went missing ten years earlier. The police never discovered what happened to her. Coming home brings back all Nicolette's memories from the night of her friend's disappearance. We meet Nicolette's brother, his wife, friends from Nicolette's past and her ex-boyfriend. Secrets are exposed, another girl goes missing and everyone is a suspect.

Once Nicolette arrives home to Cooley Ridge the story begins in reverse, counting down from day 15. Each day we discover more information, more secrets, another piece of the puzzle. Every new chapter is exciting because you know you're going to find out why the characters reacted a certain way, what started an argument you already read about or how the character came across a certain clue.

Reading about the outcome first and then going back in time and learning all the juicy details as to how the outcome came about, as strange as that sounds, was fun and thrilling. The twists and reveals kept me glued to the book and the ending was incredibly satisfying. All the loose ends were tied up nicely and I wasn't left with any lingering questions. This book exceeded my expectations. I have a spot already reserved on my bookshelf for this little gem.

Thank you Netgalley and Simon and Schuster for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Loved It!
