Lisa McMann doesn't waste time laying the story out - as soon as you start reading the small town of Cryer's Cross are searching for Tiffany, the first person who goes missing. Soon after another person goes missing and Kendall is left devastated and alone. After this, the book slows right down, concentrating more on Kendall and Jacián's relationship. I didn't mind this, I thought it tied in well with the story and gave you a chance to see how the small town was coping with the loss of two teenagers. Kendall's OCD is wonderfully well written and a great opportunity to see what it is like for someone with it to cope with loss. Every few chapters gives you mysterious messages that are impossible to understand until you reach the book's thrilling conclusion.
