Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver | Book Review

Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver

Reading Group: High School+

Personal Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars

Given Summary: New York Times bestselling author Lauren Oliver delivers a gripping story perfect for fans of We Were Liars and I Was Here, about two sisters inexorably altered by a terrible accident.
Dara and Nick used to be inseparable, but that was before the accident that left Dara's beautiful face scarred and the two sisters totally estranged.
When Dara vanishes on her birthday, Nick thinks Dara is just playing around. But another girl, nine-year-old Madeline Snow, has vanished, too, and Nick becomes increasingly convinced that the two disappearances are linked. Now Nick has to find her sister, before it's too late.
In this edgy and compelling novel, Lauren Oliver creates a world of intrigue, loss, and suspicion as two sisters search to find themselves, and each other.

Cover: The cover of this novel shows a fuzzy picture of Nick.  It's as if the picture and the girl in it are vanishing.

My Review: (Careful...Spoilers) HOLY PLOT TWIST!  I was expecting Dara to be running away from Andre and fall of the lighthouse or something else to result in her death or disappearance, I was not expecting Nick to be hallucinating being her sister!  It makes other parts of the book make so much more sense.  When Parker and "Dara" were kissing in her car and she gets mad at him for saying the wrong name, but HE DIDN'T!  I absolutely loved the plot twist because it was different and unexpected for me.  The book itself is actually kind of sad and shows how trauma can effect a persons mental state.  I would have liked the ending better if she and Parker ended up together.  And I mean, I guess they did, but not really and I would have liked it to me more official, but that's just because I like when the people end up together in the end.  This novel is different from others that I've read and I really enjoyed the mystery aspect of it.
