Nowhere Girl

I received this ARC from Netgalley and St. Martin’s Press in exchange for an honest review.

Well if this wasn’t a haymaker, I don’t know what is.

Cady’s twin sister was murdered sixteen years ago.  She felt it happening and the despair and horror never left her.  Cady lives her life in the shadow of Savannah’s absence.

Trauma climbed along the corridors of my mind and wrapped itself around the present so I couldn’t really tell the two apart.

Now a famous author, the cold case is finally reopened and she thinks she’s getting somewhere.

Instead of letting that memory drown me, I’d write.  I’d write to stay alive.  I’d write to keep the pain out of reach.

Strecker is a true wordsmith.  I honestly wasn’t sure what I was reading most of the time.  From the beginning I thought I had it all figured out and I smugly read a chapter here and there for an entire month.  It wasn’t until a lazy Saturday that I resolved to get down to business and finish it and after a few chapters I couldn’t put it down.  I was wrong.

We can barely speak our sister’s name aloud, never mind talk about what happened to her.  And then to us.

As Cady essentially simply exists with the help of her best friend Gabby and a few close friends her strange twin connection with Savannah slowly brings things to light.  Cady tiptoes towards the truth but will she ever be able to accept it?

An excellent read.

Five stars.
