about

Like the spellbinding psychological suspense in The Girl on the Train and Luckiest Girl Alive, Megan Miranda’s novel is a nail-biting, breathtaking story about the disappearances of two young women—a decade apart—told in reverse.

It’s been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared from Cooley Ridge without a trace. Back again to tie up loose ends and care for her ailing father, Nic is soon plunged into a shocking drama that reawakens Corinne’s case and breaks open old wounds long since stitched.

The decade-old investigation focused on Nic, her brother Daniel, boyfriend Tyler, and Corinne’s boyfriend Jackson. Since then, only Nic has left Cooley Ridge. Daniel and his wife, Laura, are expecting a baby; Jackson works at the town bar; and Tyler is dating Annaleise Carter, Nic’s younger neighbor and the group’s alibi the night Corinne disappeared. Then, within days of Nic’s return, Annaleise goes missing.

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.

Like nothing you’ve ever read before, All the Missing Girls delivers in all the right ways. With twists and turns that lead down dark alleys and dead ends, you may think you’re walking a familiar path, but then Megan Miranda turns it all upside down and inside out and leaves us wondering just how far we would be willing to go to protect those we love.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a fan I struggled to get through this book. Wasn't as good as I expected it to be. I felt like it was too hyped up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Couldn't get through it I'm not one to not finish a book after starting it, but halfway through the book I still found it so slow that I gave up on reading it. I don't personally like the way the author writes in a backwards time line. Might try again later...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO GOOD This was such a great book. I never knew what was going to happen. So unique to have it written backwards too. But I did have to keep reminding myself of the timeline

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FAVOURITE! This genre is my favourite and I LOVED this book. Highly recommend. If you like mysteries/twists, you will love this book. One of my new favourites.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Couldn't Put This Down! I could not put All The Missing Girls down. I read it as quickly as possible, and found myself staying away at night, saying to myself, "just one more chapter..." which quickly turned into five more chapters. All The Missing Girls is what a true suspense / thriller / mystery novel should be. It keeps you guessing, keeps you up at night wanting more and finally, it has an ending that you won't see coming. I could not have predicted the ending of this book if I tried (and trust me, I tried). Highly recommend to those who love a good thriller!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved how it was written in reverse. This book really appealed to me as it was written in reverse time wise. Kinda like that episode of Seinfeld that was backwards and the lollipop kept getting bigger? Anyways, I really enjoyed that perspective. I found the ending a little weak but the way it was written made up for it for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Read I read this book so fast, couldn't put it down! It is definitely an easy read, and you get attached to the characters. I was skeptical at first, because I figured that if the book was told backwards and I already knew the outcome, there would be nothing left to find out, and all the "spoilers" were already out there; however it turned out that every chapter revealed new pieces of the puzzle!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Page Turner! This book does NOT end the way you think it will! I was on the edge of my seat reading this. It is a different take on a kind of thriller.... I finished it in just over a day! Total page turner.
Date published: 2017-05-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Read it in just over a day I couldn't agree more when they say it has a slow start. However, the structure in the book made it more intriguing. Each chapter revealing pieces to the puzzle. I think the story was very well told, I could not put it down.
Date published: 2017-05-22
Rated 2 out of 5 by from bizzare structure - unbelievable mystery A 2.5 star read. I don't know why I'm surprised I didn't love this book (I did think it was ok) - it has been compared to The Girl on the Train - a book I feel has been over-hyped. I was intrigued by the structure - told first in the present day, then jumping back two weeks and each chapter taking place the day before the last (until you get back to the day everything happened) and then jump back to the present. I didn't feel that this structure worked until almost the last couple of chapters (the days just following the disappearance of the girl). The information you get from what happened on day 1 and day 2 of Nic being back in town is obviously the important stuff - and so it was smart not to put it all out there from the beginning ... and yet nothing much about the other chapters made me want to keep reading to figure out the mystery. Tying in the disappearance of one girl with another missing girl from 10 years before didn't work necessarily well either. I don't know. Maybe I'm all suspense/mystery'd out. Or maybe I need the story to be strong, the mystery to be well executed and characters that are believable (and no I don't need to like them, just believe what is happening to them). I have an advance copy of The Perfect Stranger to read and review for Netgalley and I'm hopeful I enjoy that one more. Would I recommend this - not necessarily. Have I given up on Megan Miranda books - not yet. Interesting style that just didn't work for me. Perhaps if each day had been told from alternating perspectives it might have improved my enjoyment of the book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just finished and want to read again! This book is a bit slow to start but once you get about 30 pages in you start to get to the good stuff! The way the book is written is very exciting and what makes this book difference than the others. Because of how its written, finding out important information towards the end, it makes you want to re-read it. Great read and when you think you've figured it out, you find out more information!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little slow to start I found the beginning of this book a little bit slow to start, so it took some time for me to get into the story. Once I got into though it was a really good book, lots of intrigue and mystery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could not put this book down! I really enjoyed how this book kept you wondering. The writing is done in reverse which makes it even more exciting. Wish the ending had a little more excitement but it was still unexpected and overall a good read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very interesting okay.so i was really engrossed with this book from the start. but when nic started explaining (or concluding?) that this certain person is the culprit I'm a little bit disappointed as the "culprit" herself did not confirm what really happened. and the ending was unexpected but the impact was meh which i expected to be more mind blowing and it was not. i would give it 3.5 stars as the buildup was really good. im not a huge fan of the backward storytelling though i found it to be very creative

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Good! I bought this book on a whim, and do not regret it. I read it in only 3 days as it was impossible to put down. The fact that it started on day 15 and slowly went to day 1 made it an even more suspenseful, yet was not confusing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't put it down! At first I found the format of the story to be a bit confusing, but after a couple of chapters it became easier to follow and I enjoyed how it unfolded being told in reverse. Miranda did a great job of revealing little bits of information at just the right time without giving too much away. The ending was satisfying and the entire story was believable, you can imagine that this story could happen in some small town.

Ten years ago Nic’s best friend goes missing, and while back home helping to sort out her fathers affairs, another girl goes missing. The ending left me wanting a little more, but its worth the read.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Thriller written in Reverse I thought the formatting of this book was very interesting. Reading the story backwards made we want to keep reading on and on to find out how the characters ended up where they were in the chapter before.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from All The Missing Girls It wasn't a bad read, the story itself was pretty interesting. What bothered me was the way it was written, told in reverse. That drove me a little crazy because I kept forgetting it was backwards and kept getting confused. I would've enjoyed it a lot more if it was written from "Day 1 to 15".

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sucks you in! * This eARC was provided to me by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. * This is my first read by Megan Miranda and I was not disappointed. The story reminded me of "The Passenger" by Lisa Lutz, "The Girl on the Train" by Paula Hawkins & even "Gone Girl" by Gillian Flynn (you know, seemingly innocent but bad girls doing bad things that are secret). The characters are solid and the pace... well... it's different with things starting at the end, moving backwards, then finishing at the end again. It's easier to read it all at once if you can, otherwise you might be temporally confused with where the story is at. That being said, there is a reason for presenting the story in this way and I think it works. The ending was satisfying in that all the threads are tied up and it was a realistic ending -- don't you love that?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Backwards plot I wasn't a big fan of how this book was written - basically backwards. The story was difficult to follow as you'd keep having to remind yourself of what was previously found out... in the future. The premise of the missing girls was enticing, but not good enough to warrant praise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting thriller It was a unique concept to start form Day 14 and work backwards to Day 1. I thought it was a bit confusing at first, but later panned out very well. I'm thinking of reading it backwards now and going from Day 1 to Day 14 to see all the subtle details I had missed the first time through.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting Backwards Thriller I received this book as a gift for Christmas and I must say the synopsis was very intriguing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting & A Page Turner An enjoyable read, though the gimmick of the story can be a bit obtuse at times, none the less I recommend this book. Our story revolves around unresolved family issues caused by a disappearance. A decade later Nic returns to her hometown under circumstances essentially outside of her control. Your past is never too far away, and if left unresolved, it will never stay in the past.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Thriller I really enjoyed this book! I love thrillers, and have read quite a few lately. This one stands out because the story hooks you early on, and there's enough suspense throughout that you want to keep reading. The story is told backwards, which makes it a little different than the current thrillers. While you might think this sort of storytelling won't work, it actually works really well in this case and keeps you thinking as you have to piece things together. I'd recommend this book if you're a fan of the current thrillers trend, or if you're just looking for an interesting story that'll keep you guessing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I loved it! #plumreview I bought this book for my mommy book club, and we all really enjoyed it. The only thing I wasn't a fan of was the way the story was told - you really have to pay attention and follow along closely as the story is told backwards. It kept me guessing, I had no idea how it was going to end. Great read! #plumreview
Date published: 2017-01-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I definitely recommend! Sometimes mysteries/psychological thrillers can feel a bit repetitive. Like we have read the plot a million times before. Especially with the constant comparison to Girl on the Train and Gone Girl. Even though the description might lead you to believe otherwise, this book did not fall into that trap. Just when I thought I had it figured out the author would turn you in another direction. I didn't put it down until I read the last word.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plot Twist I am not a big mystery reader but this was an excellent read. Never what you think and the characters deliver, your answer takes you to an ending you were not expecting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from page turner This book kept you guessing, it was a great read and i couldn't put it down. I found it interesting to read backwards from the events going from day 15 - 1.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kept My Attention Interesting read. Author takes you on a reverse ride down narrator Nic's memory lane, allowing the reader to put the pieces of the story together in an atypical manner. I appreciated that, for once, I did not have it all figured out after the first few chapters.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Story Line This was an ok book. I love psychological thrillers, but this book was written backwards from day 15-1. It wasn't a page turner for myself, and in fact I found it hard to follow and get in to. I had high hopes for this book, but I can only give it a 3 star. It dragged on but by the end it finally started to pick up and got a bit more interesting. Still recommend it but I've read better in this genre.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Read!! When I first started this book, I wasn't thrilled with the way it's written in reverse chronological order, but as the story progressed, it kept me wanting more. It was surprising and engaging with little twists and turns that keep you guessing. #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Read! I loved this book. It kept me guessing and every time I thought I knew what the outcome was it completely changed. The ending completely shocked me! So good. Megan Miranda did such a good job writing this book and kept me on my toes. She wrote the characters very well, giving a lot of detail about them and their personalities.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved it! I thought this was a wonderful thriller. The story was told backwards, from day 15 to day 1, but I thought it was easy enough to understand and worked well in revealing bits of information for the reader. What I most loved about this thriller, however, is that its characters are incredibly complex, which is an area where the (admittedly small) handful of other thrillers I've read have lacked. I even ended up genuinely liking some of the characters, although this review is not based off of their likability, as I am a firm believer that a good book does not necessarily have or need likable characters.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from a struggle I bought this book based on the stellar reviews & was underwhelmed to say the least. I took me weeks to get through it. I thought it was choppy and messy & hard to follow. I have lent it out to friends hoping its just me and my short attention span. Might come back to it in a few months.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just an OK read. I enjoyed the story line - however the book is written backwards and it does get kind of confusing and hard to follow at times. Over all it was just an ok book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 7/10 I'm pretty mixed up about how I feel about this book. The beginning didnt really caught my interest, but I kept reading anyway and the end was somehow surprising yet not totally believable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed feelings This book is different from what I often read. I like how the book goes from backwards towards how everything happened. Some parts I was confused because Nicolette was confused and sometimes she seem like repeating herself in every chapter. I felt like I was reading the same thing over again with more confusion from Nicolette. Im not going to lie, I was a bit confused how everything went down at the end.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting The idea of continuing the story backwards was different. I am still not too sure if I liked that idea, but the story was good. It felt a little dragged at some points but towards the end, it got better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting concept Good mystery, just have to pay attention to the details. Story is told in reverse, so sometimes I had to really think about what was going on. This is not a book you can read and then come back to during a busy schedule. To retain the story, try to read as much as possible in one sitting. Overall, I liked it, but the book seemed overly long.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just no Honestly, this books tries to be something special. Its just a typical, murder mystery with a twist. But the twist isn't even well executed! If you're only going to read a few books this year, I don't recommend this one

Editorial Reviews

"This thriller’s all of your fav page-turners (think: Luckiest Girl Alive, The Girl on the Train, Gone Girl) rolled into one.” —theSkimm “Both [Gillian] Flynn’s and Miranda’s main characters also reclaim the right of female characters to be more than victim or femme fatale… All the Missing Girls is set to become one of the best books of 2016.” — Los Angeles Review of Books “Extremely interesting…a novel that will probably be called Hitchcockian.” —The New York Times Book Review “Are you paying attention? You'll need to be; this thriller will test your brain with its reverse chronological structure, and it's a page-turner to boot.”  — ELLE “Intricately plotted…Ms. Miranda brings heightened suspense and a twist to this familiar scenario by telling the story, which unfolds over 15 days, in reverse chronological order.” — The New York Times    “Fast-paced and frightening, All the Missing Girls will teach you why it's dangerous to go into the woods alone at night.” — Refinery29 “All the Missing Girls is the archetypal murder mystery, the kind it seems like everyone has been hungry for since Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl and Paula Hawkins's Girl on a Train.” — Cosmopolitan.com “A new spin on a classic "missing person" thriller, All the Missing Girls is the perfect read for thriller fans.” — Bustle.com "In All the Missing Girls Megan Miranda leads readers back through the past of a small southern town, enfolding them in a slow, tense nightmare of suspicion, menace, and tangled motives. A twisty, compulsive read--I loved it." — Ruth Ware, author of IN A DARK, DARK WOOD "Fiendishly plotted...Miranda convincingly conjures a haunted setting that serves as a character in its own right, but what really makes this roller-coaster so memorable is her inspired use of reverse chronology, so that each chapter steps further back in time, dramatically shifting the reader's perspective." — Publishers Weekly, starred review "As original as it is addictive, this story puts a knot in your gut from the opening pages. Then, through the wizardry of its unconventional structure, that knot tightens and tightens and will not let go until the final pages—and even then the story continues to haunt you. Vividly rendered, psychologically complex, and narratively acrobatic, All The Missing Girls is, above all, totally gripping." — Tim Johnston, New York Times bestselling author of DESCENT "Darkly nostalgic....Miranda takes a risk by telling the story backward, but it pays off with an undroppable thriller, plenty of romantic suspense, and a fresh take on the decades-old teenage-murder theme." — Booklist   "All the Missing Girls is a smart, suspenseful, and emotionally complex thriller. Told in reverse, this story will make you want to lock the doors, turn off the phone, and read until the last satisfying page." — Alafair Burke, New York Times bestselling author of THE EX "Megan Miranda’s utterly gripping and original All the Missing Girls keeps you off balance in the most perfect way. I was held hostage by the book from the first page to the stunning conclusion. This literally backward tale is a winner." — Lisa Lutz, author of THE PASSENGER and HOW TO START A FIRE
