Mass Market Paperback
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 10 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; her 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 backward - 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 10 years ago.
Like nothing you've ever heard 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.

Having spent my first 18 years in an incredibly small mountain town, Megan Miranda's descriptions of the families, the friends, the gossip, the rumors, the closeness and loyalty...it's all spot on. I only wish the rest of the book had been so insightful.
I truly wanted to like this story...but the best I can say is, for me, it wasn't hate.
The first 75% of All the Missing Girls is clunky and disjointed, with next to no character development. Clearly, the author was trying to create red herrings, but because of the way the book was written, every page just felt unfinished. I'd read a chapter and instead of feeling enchanted by the backward story line, I just felt empty and incomplete. Sadly, this was yet another book in which the author chose to write characters with no redeemable qualities...none in this novel were particularly likable. That's always hard for me as a reader. I need someone to cheer for.
The final 25% is revelation after revelation. It's literally non-stop. Unfortunately, the "twists" were a bit underwhelming, and more than a little predictable.
I started reading this book on April 28th...just finished it on May 5th. That NEVER happens. I usually average at least 3 books a week. I was just so bored, I had to force myself to pick up my Kindle and read the next chapter. There was nothing mesmerizing here, folks.
2.5 stars rounded to 3.

strange as individuals all with problems.
It was interesting to have a small 'closed' town as the setting. These are in existence all the world round.
The story was plausible in this sense but because of it rather predictable.
