Book Review: All The Missing Girls by Megan Miranda

What draws Nic back into her hometown and what does she stumble upon while being home?!

I really wanted to love this book but it just left me feeling like something was missing.

This story is about a girl named Nic who heads back to her hometown after being gone ten years. As a girl goes missing the town starts looking back into the past of another young girls dissapearance. The events in this book are told backwards, which I found super interesting. I have never really read a book that told the story that way. However, the trouble I had with that was since I took breaks between readings I couldn’t remember what was what and where I left off. A lot of the characters became confusing and had me all mixed up.

I tried to give this book a chance, thinking maybe I just wasn’t in the mood to read.

As the story counted down by day you get a glimpse to more of the story behind the two different missing girls, and you can put the pieces together of what actually happened. To me the end was slightly rushed, I felt that I really wanted more. When you find out “who did it” I found myself saying well that’s it?

This book was well written and such an easy read for a summer day next to the pool! I am still interested in reading other books of Megan Miranda. I just honestly feel it was a combination of not being in that “reading mood” and I just wanted more out of it. Overall the story was interesting but it just left me wanting so much more.

I gave this book 3 stars ***

Have you read this book or one of her books before? I would love to hear your thoughts!
