    The Missing Girl

    Such a wonderful book. I couldn't stop reading, I had to know what had happened and why. The final chapter left me so sad, my sorrow mirrored the emotions of the main character.

    The missing girl

    Beautiful. Wonderfully written, so much detail I can see and feel the village, the home, the characters so clearly. And a lovely story; sad, but lovely.

    Atmospheric, dramatic, and intriguing!

    The Missing Girl is a slow-burning, captivating mystery that takes us into the life of Anna Flores who upon returning home to settle her mother’s estate decides to probe, explore and finally piece together what actually happened to her sister Gabriella on the afternoon she disappeared thirty years prior. The writing is crisp and precise. The characters are troubled, determined, and genuine. And the plot, using first-person narration and alternating between 1982 and present, builds nicely and creates tension as it twists, turns, and unravels all the behaviours, actions, motivations, relationships, and personalities within it. The Missing Girl at its core is a novel about family, friendship, secrets, kidnapping, and murder that highlights the emotional and psychological devastation caused by a missing child and the resulting finger-pointing, fragility and dynamics between family members, friends, neighbours, newcomers, and the community. It is an evocative and impressive debut for Quintana, and I look forward to reading what she comes up with next.

    Family and Secrets

    *ARC Review* Anna Flores has had mystery surrounding her life since the disappearance of her older sister Gabriella. This had started a huge hole that has been growing, it includes Gabriella's disappearance, her father's death, and now her mother's death. She has returned to the small England town, hoping for a simple trip to finish packing up her mother belongings and shutting this chapter of her life. She gets more secrets than answers, but maybe this is what she needs to solve what happened to her sister. This story is told by Anna but jumps between the present year and the year that Gabriella was taken in 1982. The characters are greatly developed and show a huge amount of growth. The story does start off on a slow note but eventually speeds up to the perfect speed. It includes lots of mystery and suspense and has a good amount of twists and turns along the way.  Yes, I would recommend this book. The story is well written and thought out, it also contains many issues that we still see today, teenagers missing, family secrets, cover-ups, and lies. You can easily connect with Anna and see things from her point of view, but I truly believe that unless you have lost some close to you like Anna does, you can never fully grasp what the character is going through.
