Missing by Kelly Armstrong
Published: April 28th 2017 by Crown Books for Young Readers
The only thing Winter Crane likes about Reeve’s End is that soon she’ll leave it. Like her best friend did. Like her sister did. Like most of the teens born in town have done. There’s nothing for them there but abandoned mines and empty futures. They’re better off taking a chance elsewhere.
The only thing Winter will miss is the woods. Her only refuge. At least it was. Until the day she found Lennon left for dead, bleeding in a tree.
But now Lennon is gone too. And he has Winter questioning what she once thought was true. What if nobody left at all? What if they’re all missing?
This book was so creepy!
Deliciously twisted and disturbing. In this stand-alone book Armstrong intertwines small towns, desolate forests, and a psychopath on the loose.
Armstrong has a signature narrative style that flows just so. Readers feel at home within the first few pages of ANY of her books. Without fail, her novels consistently deliver. Her narrative flows just so and makes for easy reading.
Armstrong plays with the atmosphere of the eerie small town to her advantage. There is a constant sense of foreboding throughout the story. The reader is always on edge. Constantly wondering what the truth is.
Reeves End is a place I would never dream of going. A community connected by lies and deception – no thanks!
With engaging characters, a fast paced plot line and enough mystery and creepy thrills to leave me wanting more and flipping rapidly through the pages to discover who was responsible for it all.
I highly recommend this to someone looking for a well throughout, plotted mystery that will thoroughly keep you engaged until the very end.
