"It happens quietly one August morning. As dawn's shimmering light drenches the humid Iowa air, two families awaken to find their little girls have gone missing in the night. Seven-year-old Calli Clark is sweet, gentle, a dreamer who suffers from selective mutism brought on by tragedy that pulled her deep into silence as a toddler. Calli's mother, Antonia, tried to be the best mother she could within the confines of marriage to a mostly absent, often angry husband.

I love this author's stories and her writing style.. Her stories are so engaging. This was a book you could not put down. It is about 2 little girls who disappear and the search to find them. the chapters are written from the perspective of some of the people involved - one of the girls, the parents, the law enforcement officers, siblings. Makes the story very interesting. It is a suspenseful book which keeps you guessing till the end.

Great book! I loved the suspense! First book I've read from this author, and I'm sure to read more!

Really fast read, i think I was done with it in 5 hours or so. It's an interesting book, great story, but the end seems rather abrupt; like the author ran out of time and absolutely had to end the book.

Good, fast-paced read. A bit too simplistic for me.
