Dara and Nicola used to be inseparable, but that was before - before Dara kissed Parker, before Nicola lost him as her best friend, before the accident that left Dara's beautiful face scarred. Now the two sisters, who used to be so close, aren't speaking. In an instant, Nick lost everything and is determined to use the summer to get it all back.
But Dara has other plans. When she vanishes on her birthday, Nicola thinks Dara is just playing around. But another girl has vanished, too - nine-year-old Elizabeth Snow - and as Nicola pursues her sister, she becomes increasingly convinced that the two disappearances may be linked.

Kildonan by the sea
I will not tell you to much about the story because that would be spoiling it, but I will tell you that these two sisters became real and I cared for them enough that I felt sad when the book ended. The mystery in the story is about a lost little girl, and two sisters that can not communicate any more. The breakdown of a family that cares for each other but can not get it together enough to heal .
Well executed, and touching, with well developed characters and no morbose violence; much more than just a thriller.
The use of different voices was well achieved and did not distract from the story.
I love Lauren Oliver and have listened to most of her books. The delirium series I've listened to over and over. This one I'm afraid put me to sleep. I couldn't keep up with what was going on and it was just odd and muddled. Hope Lauren hasn't lost her touch.
