This offers up plenty of mystery and suspense to satisfy those looking for another missing girl story, but there’s an additional angle to this one as the heroine Jo reckons with a toxic situation from her past (toxic isn’t really a strong enough word for it but I’m not naming exactly what happened in case it’s considered a spoiler), and how that situation altered the course of her young life.

There are some sex scenes in this one, which aren’t always included in YA novels, so I figured that’s probably worth noting as different readers have different sensibilities where that’s concerned. The scenes here are not about providing steam for the reader, they’re illustrating how a good, healthy sexual relationship could and should feel, it’s a really meaningful, necessary part of this heroine’s journey.

I thought the author managed the dual purposes of this novel so well, a page-turner with enough twists to keep you guessing, but then the emotional side of things delivered, too, conveying the scars Jo carries with her, the heartbreak of her parents failing her, the value of truly good friends, etc., it’s the kind of book that successfully straddles the line between entertainment and something deeper.

An excellent blend of growing realization about a traumatic event, too many high school students with a shared secret, a missing girl who used to be the protagonist's best friend, online shaming, and a question of who can be trusted, particularly the boy she likes. Mix them together well and you have this book. It's a dandy and please read the author's note in the back.
