Rated 4 out of 5 by from A definite must-read for your collection! I must say, this mysterious thriller was one of the best young-adult mysteries I've read in a while. I admit, I was a bit skeptical when I picked it up and read the back in the store, but I bought it anyway to give it a try. The way Joyce adds little tidbits here and there into the story to lead you through to the finale keeps you sucked right into the tale of a young teen (who invents an alter-ego after she barely escapes from being raped at a party), and her emotional little sister, trying to unravel a web of lies their oh-so-famous father weaved for them about their mother, and why she moved out to the middle of nowhere. The one thing that turned me off about it was when, in the middle of the story, she gave away just a little too much about the end, and I figured out the skeleton of what happened right away. But, it was still a great novel, and I definetly reccomend it to anyone if you love abduction/kidnapping/murder mysteries.
