The Girls Who Disappeared: A Novel

We rated this book:


In a small English town lies a haunted road called the Devil’s Corridor. Though the Devil’s Corridor is known for its strange occurrences, teenage Olivia and her three friends drove through it one night on their way home from a party. The girls lost control of the car and crashed – but when Olivia regained consciousness, her three friends were nowhere to be found. Twenty years later, journalist Jenna Halliday hasn’t let up on the question of what happened to the three other girls. But she soon finds that the town is not so eager to have the past unraveled. Jenna starts to receive threatening notes, and if she doesn’t solve the mystery of the missing girls soon, she becomes one herself.

A quick and thrilling read, The Girls Who Disappeared provides all the twists and secrets that fans of Gone Girl will devour. The eerie town of Wilshire and its supernatural elements take the story to the next level, and getting both Jenna and Olivia’s points of view makes for a gripping read that, while at times can be slow, picks up in the moments that matter most.
