More about this book:
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.
Gabbie’s co-worker, Kayla, goes missing one night on a pizza delivery. From what the cops say, it looks like Kayla knew her abductor. From what Drew (a co-worker) says, Kayla’s abductor asked for the delivery girl who drives the Mini Cooper but Kayla doesn’t own a Mini Cooper, Gabbie does. With Kayla missing and Gabbie knowing that she was supposed to be making that delivery that night, Gabbie’s world starts to crumble down. Why did Kayla ask Gabbie to switch shifts? Why does this person want Kayla? Why did this person originally intend to abduct Gabbie? But most importantly, is Kayla still alive?
I was excited to start this book. From the review I read before starting it, it was pretty well like and they weren’t wrong. “The Night She Disappeared” takes off running on the first page and doesn’t stop until the very last. It felt like I just started the book and in seconds I was finished with it. Also, it was a complete mystery to me who the abductor was which kept me intrigued until the very last page.
I liked how the author writes each chapter from another person’s point of view but does it so well to where the story doesn’t get muddled. Instead of being introduced to a character from the main character’s perspective, you get to know each character that plays a main role in the plot and what they are thinking and how they feel.
Check the book out and I really think you won’t be disappointed.
