Suspense builds as a familyand rsquo;s tragedy unfolds in this engrossing and touching novel. Almost a year before the story begins, Payton Brave's twin sister Dylan mysteriously disappears. Although Payton was with Dylan the day her sister vanished, she cannot remember what happened. Coauthors Madison and Miller strategically peel back the many layers of the mystery, slowly revealing just enough to keep readers hooked. Though close, the twins were opposite in many ways. Payton is part of the 'in' crowd; Dylan never cared about being popular. Once Dylan disappeared, Payton began to question her own choices. Her life as one of Cornwell Highand rsquo;s 'It Girls' seems more effort than she can manage. Her mortician stepfather, doctor mother, and elderly Nana are loving, but the family members are locked in their individual battles to move forward without knowing what happened to Dylan. As Payton distances herself from her friends and family and even her name (she rechristens herself Poe after the macabre writer), she grows closer to Dylan's crowd of school outcasts. She also finds herself becoming more dependent on Dylanand rsquo;s boyfriend Cole. Sheand rsquo;s conflicted by her attraction to him, but she needs Cole, as he is the only one willing to help her search for the person who took her sister. As Poe moves closer to finding the assailant, she puts herself in danger. VERDICT A suspenseful thriller with heart and an unexpected twist. Highly recommended.

Its been a year since Payton's twin sister, Dylan, disappeared from a bus station bathroom. Despite her best efforts, Payton still hasn't been able to recall anything that happened the day Dylan vanished, and lately sheand rsquo;s been struggling to keep up her perfect popular-girl persona. When another girl goes missing, new information is unearthed about Dylanand rsquo;s disappearance, and Payton is determined to get to the bottom of it. As she unravels the secrets surrounding Dylan and others in their small town, Payton finds herself going down a darker and more dangerous path than she could have ever imagined. Though the pacing starts slow, it accelerates as more and more clues mount. Despite the pacing problems, Madison (an established actress) and Miller are able to realistically portray southern culture, especially of life in a small town. The characters--and, of course, the twist at the end--make this book one that fans of mystery and drama will definitely enjoy.-- Amanda Shepard (Booklist)

The story was done very well. I love the way it plays out, and the fact that it’s nothing like you first think it is. There is more than one twist to the story, and I absolutely love the big plot twist at the end. As well as the fact that this story really is perfect for all ages. Even with it’s tough subject matter at times, it’s handled in a way that is more family friendly than most mystery/thrillers. It’s honestly just a gem of a story. One that I honestly hope does become adapted one day. I’d love to see this played out on either the big, or the small screen.
Bailee and Stefne did a wonderful job with this story, and I highly recommend checking it out.
4.7/5 stars! 🌟
Plus, the twist at the end made me want to go back and re-read it to see all the clues I might have missed the first time!
If you have ever lost someone, or even felt like you’ve lost a bit of yourself, you will definitely be able to relate to this book, and maybe find some healing along the way.
