#BookReview: Girl Last Seen by Nina Laurin

girl last seenAbout the Book

Two missing girls. Thirteen years apart.

Olivia Shaw has been missing since last Tuesday. She was last seen outside the entrance of her elementary school in Hunts Point wearing a white spring jacket, blue jeans, and pink boots.

I force myself to look at the face in the photo, into her slightly smudged features, and I can’t bring myself to move. Olivia Shaw could be my mirror image, rewound to thirteen years ago.

If you have any knowledge of Olivia Shaw’s whereabouts or any relevant information, please contact…

I’ve spent a long time peering into the faces of girls on missing posters, wondering which one replaced me in that basement. But they were never quite the right age, the right look, the right circumstances. Until Olivia Shaw, missing for one week tomorrow.

Whoever stole me was never found. But since I was taken, there hasn’t been another girl.

Review:

This book actually made me sweat. Like, full on, I’m so scared right now, you’re messing with my head, type of sweat. And I loved it. I was recommending this all over social media and was so highly invested I didn’t want to go to my weekly volleyball game when things started getting realllll twisty towards the end. If you can handle a disturbing thriller, get this one, because it will stick with you. I will say if you can’t handle disturbing situations such as child sexual abuse, you need to avoid this one, because the ending gets extremely dark. Absolutely chilling, a book that will keep you up at night, and one I highly recommend if this is your genre.

5 stars
