Vanishing Girls

Oliver, Lauren.  Vanishing Girls. NY: Harper, c2015.  357 pages.

From the publisher:  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.

If you are looking for a fiction book for Mrs. Boland's health requirement, this book involves dissociative disorders.  It also involves the use of drugs, alcohol and dangerous decision-making.  I found myself reading long past bed-time to find out what happened next.  All the details are not revealed until the end of the book.

Recommended for high school and above.  Review by Mrs. Belknap
