Description

Like the spellbinding psychological suspense in The Girl on the Train and Luckiest Girl Alive, Megan Miranda's novel is a nail-biting, breathtaking story about the disappearances of two young women-a decade apart-told in reverse.

It's been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared from Cooley Ridge without a trace. Back again to tie up loose ends and care for her ailing father, Nic is soon plunged into a shocking drama that reawakens Corinne's case and breaks open old wounds long since stitched.

The decade-old investigation focused on Nic, her brother Daniel, boyfriend Tyler, and Corinne's boyfriend Jackson. Since then, only Nic has left Cooley Ridge. Daniel and his wife, Laura, are expecting a baby; Jackson works at the town bar; and Tyler is dating Annaleise Carter, Nic's younger neighbor and the group's alibi the night Corinne disappeared. Then, within days of Nic's return, Annaleise goes missing.

Told backwards-Day 15 to Day 1-from the time Annaleise goes missing, Nic works to unravel the truth about her younger neighbor's disappearance, revealing shocking truths about her friends, her family, and what really happened to Corinne that night ten years ago.

Like nothing you've ever read before, All the Missing Girls delivers in all the right ways. With twists and turns that lead down dark alleys and dead ends, you may think you're walking a familiar path, but then Megan Miranda turns it all upside down and inside out and leaves us wondering just how far we would be willing to go to protect those we love.

    Thank you Net Galley!
    This is a great story told with an interesting perspective (backwards). This book had me holding my breath in several places. Thank you Ms. Miranda!

    I'd been hearing mixed reviews about this book. However, I wanted to give it a try. I was definitely not disappointed. This was a slower read that built up the anticipation a little at a time. I liked how the time went back day by day.

    Great thriller (read it on the beach!). This kept me turning the pages and, since it is written in reverse, even got me to re-read sections in the right order to pick up on what I missed the first time. The female protagonist is interesting . . .she gets a little whiny in parts, but has an interesting history that is worth learning about.

    ALL THE MISSING GIRLS shakes up the suspense genre with a unique way of telling the story: backward. At first, I wasn't sure how this set up would work considering it's a mystery, but in the end I have to say that it worked very well and added to my enjoyment of the book. I listened to this on audio, narrated by the talented Rebekkah Ross. It begins with Nic (Nicolette) returning to her childhood home of Cooley Ridge because of her ailing father. Nic left Cooley Ridge ten years earlier, just after her best friend Corinne disappeared. Then suddenly, a decade later, another young woman goes missing - Annaleise, the girlfriend of Nic's high school boyfriend, Tyler. Could the two cases be related? Nic is frantic to find out the truth. The story is then told from Day 15 (after Nic's arrival in Cooley Ridge) to Day 1. The details of the women's disappearances are slowly revealed, as well as the major players in the mystery. Going backward, you're never quite sure what's already happened, what the characters already know, and who's reliable or not. It was a genius way to add to the suspense. Sure, it's more of a challenge to read a book this way, but well worth it. It all wrapped up with a completely surprising ending. 4.5 stars!Disclosure: I received a copy of this audiobook from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Have no expectations of this story. Read it just for the uniqueness of telling the story in reverse
