All The Missing Girls

71suVQyb5YLWe chose All the Missing Girls, by Megan Miranda, for my neighborhood book club this month. Nic left home ten years ago in the wake of her best friend going missing. When she returns to help her brother clean out their family home to sell, another local girl goes missing. The story is told chapter by chapter in reverse order – starting at day 15 and working back to day 1, when Nic gets there. Then it skips ahead to day 15 to finish up. While the story was somewhat interesting, it wasn’t terribly well-written and I found the backward order and story elements somewhat confusing. The idea was novel and I wanted to like it, but I only finished the book to see whodunit. Otherwise, I would have abandoned ship. I’ll be curious to hear what the rest of the book group thought of it.
