I had a taste of one of April Henry’s books (Girl, Stolen) a few months back, and I immediately love her work. Naturally, I look for more of her books up and this peaked my interests. Little I know, she be taking me through another emotional, end of the seat experience. and I am happy that she did. (I was in a reading slump and her books brought me back)
Honestly, the cover and the title itself intrigued me, the storyline just grab me from the beginning. That first quote is quite heart gripping (points at quote). The chapters are titles as the number of days. That’s kind of cool. Characters are at times a bit confusing, I couldn’t figure out who is who at first, but it work out in the end.
Bottomline, the thing about this book is, it can happened to anyone. my regret is, I wish the book could last a bit longer. I do wish April would give more development to Kayla, her family and her kidnapper characters POV though. But yeah overall, It was a total nail biting experience.
It was me who took the order. It could have been anyone. I don’t know why I feel guilty. But it was me.
The Night She Disappeared
By April Henry
Gabie drives a Mini Cooper. She also works part time as a delivery girl at Pete’s Pizza. One night, Kayla—another delivery girl—goes missing. To her horror, Gabie learns that the supposed kidnapper had asked if the girl in the Mini Cooper was working that night. Gabie can’t move beyond the fact that Kayla’s fate was really meant for her, and she becomes obsessed with finding Kayla. She teams up with Drew, who also works at Pete’s. Together, they set out to prove that Kayla isn’t dead—and to find her before she is.
