  1. This was a great book!!!!! I normally do not like books like this but this one so far is in my to three. I really liked the main character, she fit the story perfectly and added to the extremely unpredictable plot. Georgia the main character is extremely detrermined in her search for her sister with her sister’s friend Billy. Throughout the whole story I was thinking that of course she would not find her sister, they never do in books, and I was feeling bad for the character. I thought it was a predictable story, there was even that one point where she pretty much admits that her sister is dead and they start to turn back. I thought I knew the ending but i did not because then they start finding clues. A lot happens but they still turn home, Georgia is still hopeful with the clues they find but now that they are home there is not much to do about them. That is when the author totally twists the ending in a completely smart and perfect way. That is the best part. More than just the ending the author adds all these twists throughout the story and not a single one i expected. I loved this book!!!!!!!!!!!!
