Ten years after leaving Cooley Ridge, Nicolette Farrell returns to care for her ailing father. A decade ago, she, her brother Daniel, her boyfriend Tyler, and Corinne's boyfriend Jackson were suspects when Corinne--Nic's best friend-- disappeared without a trace. Within days of Nic's return, they are plunged into a shocking drama when Nic's neighbor Annaleise, who is dating Tyler and was the group's alibi ten years previously, goes missing. Told backwards from the time Annaleise disappears, the book follows Nic as she works to unravel the truth and, in the process, reveals shocking realities about her friends, her family, and what really happened to Corinne that night ten years ago.

This book really left you wanting more and you couldn't just put it down as some chapters were left as cliffhangers. I really enjoyed this book, especially as it was told in reverse. It really made you think. Just when you thought it was one person, evidence swayed you to another. There were some chapters where it was a bit pointless but overall i really liked the way it made you think.

I really struggled with this novel. The reversed time was just too confusing and the story line was silly in spots. I think the book could have done with a 100 page edit as it just went on and on at the end. One of my least enjoyable books in a long time. I gave it 2 stars as I was compelled to finish it just to find out "who done it".

Phenomenal book! I highly recommend! The author has a unique writing style and weaves an amazing tale. I started this book on a Saturday afternoon... could not put it down, ended up pulling an all nighter to finish it.
Amazon book!!

Hated the backward story style...too confusing, but I hung in there and did enjoy how it was wrapped up. The title is deceiving...ALL the missing girls? Should have left off the all.

I had a hard time following this story the way it was written. I almost didn't finish it, but decided to when I hit the half way point. The story starts off telling you that it has been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left town when her best friend Corrine disappeared. When Nicolette comes home to help her brother sell her father's house, another girl goes missing. Now Annaleise Carter is missing and Nicolette tries to uncover the truth in what happened to both of these girls.

This book kept me interested throughout. It's told for the most part in reverse and has some interesting twists and turns. Once I got to the halfway point, I couldn't put it down and finished it in a night. Reminded me a little bit of the way Good as Gone was written, and I really enjoyed that book as well.

I LOVED THIS BOOK! I can't really tell you why though. I don't know if it was the mystery, the setting, or the format, but it sent me into a reading hangover--nothing since has lived up to this. I loved the format of this book--telling us the story backward. Each chapter ends at the beginning of the previous chapter. The mystery keeps you guessing and and the characters are complicated. I really enjoyed this one.

It’s been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared from Cooley Ridge without a trace, and now Annaleise Carter has vanished. Told backwards — Day 15 to Day 1 — from the time Annaleise goes missing, Nic works to unravel the truth about her younger neighbor’s disappearance, revealing shocking truths about her friends, her family, and what really happened to Corinne that night ten years ago.

Couldn't put the book down. I had to know what happened to.the missing girls. You keep suspecting everyone until the end.

I absolutely loved the author's choice to tell this story backward. The numerous twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading. Plus, I could not figure out what really happened until the very end. A great read!

Not as good as "Girl on the Train", but still interesting. Plot a little flat and boring until last chapters because of the unusual literary device of beginning 2/3 through the plot, and working back to the beginning. The lesson offered to the reader stilted....seemed the author had a stretch to come up with a "moral" to the story. Or, perhaps I just don't get it?
