Genre: Young Adult Mystery
Publishing Date: October 6, 2020
EVERY MISSING PERSON HAS A STORY.
In her small town, seventeen-year-old Delia “Dee” Skinner is known as the girl who wasn’t taken. Ten years ago she witnessed the abduction of her best friend, Sibby. And though she told the police everything she remembered, it wasn’t enough. Sibby was never seen again.
At night, Dee deals with her guilt by becoming someone else: the Seeker, the voice behind the popular true crime podcast Radio Silent, which features missing persons cases and works with online sleuths to solve them. Nobody knows Dee’s the Seeker, and she plans to keep it that way.
When another little girl in town goes missing, and the case is linked to Sibby’s disappearance, Dee has a chance to get answers with the help of her virtual detectives and the intriguing new girl at school. But how much of her own story is she willing to reveal in order to uncover the truth?
“There were only two of us in the woods that day. One of us is missing, and one of us is left behind.”
When two girls went out at the woods to play they couldn’t imagine what was lurking for them there. Something that would change their lives forever. One goes missing and the other one stays behind with what happened there haunting her for the next decade.
Our heroine is the one who’s left behind and now ten years later a similar case happens at their hometown and she can’t escape her past. She needs to face her demons and delve deeper than she wanted to. At the same time she is the secret host behind a famous podcast that its own goal is to help cases of missing people. But when there’s another case of a missing girl, in her own hometown and specifically in the house she used to live in when her best friend went missing , they are wondering if this case is connected to the one from the past. A new girl moves in across the street and she starts asking questions and comes close to our heroine.
Wow! You guys I recently read this book and it was so good!! It’s been a while since I’ve read a mystery that I couldn’t predict and I’m so happy! I did have some questions that weren’t exactly answered and some explanations were a bit weird to me, but other than that it was a great one. As the story progressed it became more interesting. And the suspense by the end had me biting my nails and just eating it up!! If you’re in mood for a mystery, this is a such a good one 💜
