I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was such a good mystery and I couldn't figure out what was going on. The characters were really interesting. I'm surprised by some of the reviews that are negative. I have written plenty of negative reviews of best sellers, but I was delighted to discover this book. I bought it because I really liked The Good Girl and I thought this was even better. The narrators were excellent and well matched to the characters. A real treat.

I really enjoyed this storyline. It was very interesting, although the it takes a few chapters to get fully invested in the characters. A disappearing friend, a new girl to town, it is very intriguing. I really liked all the back stories that came to light throughout. It really kept things going. There were a lot of twists and turns that were very unexpected, but some scenes were dragged out with too many details.
Also, the performers just didn't capture the characters the way I would have if I read the book instead. They didn't have enough emotion. They probably are the reason I only gave the book 4 stars.

This book wasn't shocking but it certainly wasn't Mary Kubica's best work. I quite enjoyed the Good Girl - but this seemed boring and predictable in comparison. The male narrator is ok... though it is hard to imagine a teenage boy when you are listening to his voice. Also, he is the same narrator as Nick from Gone Girl. I found it hard to separate the two.
Overall, the story line was fairly weak and (most) of the characters were underdeveloped. I wouldn't recommend it.
im still trying to decide if i dislike the voices, or if the voices excelled at portraying the characters.. like when you watch a movie and distaste the bad guy, realising its not the actor you hate, but becus the actor did such a good job to make u hate the character..
i read a review that stated there were so many twists and turns and the author did something i havent experienced yet. usually a twist comes out of nowhere.. but in this book a twist would swoop in and i would think i knew the secret and would be unsatisfied, then another twist would come in and id think once again.... oh okay, well now i know so ehh..and then bam another twist.
would have preferred to read this book rather than listen to it.. but it is an easy read..
I can see this as a movie oneday.
