Have you ever picked up a book intending to only read a few pages or chapters, but find yourself unable to put it down? This was my exact experience with Lost Girls by Merrie Destefano a year ago when I first had the chance to read it. And after checking out several early reviews, I can tell you that I’m far from the only person who was completely drawn into this story of a teen girl who loses the memory of the last year of her life after going missing for two weeks.
Pick up Lost Girls today and find out why one reviewer said it was “the best YA contemporary thriller that she read in 2016!”
About Lost Girls:
Yesterday, Rachel went to sleep listening to Taylor Swift, curled up in her grammy’s quilt, worrying about geometry. Today, she woke up in a ditch, bloodied, bruised, and missing a year of her life.
She doesn’t recognize the person she’s become: she’s popular. She wears nothing but black.
Black to cover the blood.
And she can fight.
Tell no one.
She’s not the only girl to go missing within the last year…but she’s the only girl to come back. She desperately wants to unravel what happened to her, to try and recover the rest of the Lost Girls.
But the more she discovers, the more her memories return. And as much as her new life scares her, it calls to her. Seductively. The good girl gone bad, sex, drugs, and raves, and something darker…something she still craves—the rush of the fight, the thrill of the win—something she can’t resist, that might still get her killed…
