Review for The Missing by A. Meredith Walters writing as A.M. Irvin
Where am I?
Days bleed into one another and I know that I’m trapped. A prisoner.
I have no answers and no one to give them to me. Only the silence and the dark.
Except for the song.
The words tell a story that I wish I could forget.
About a girl who didn’t run fast enough.
A forgotten girl…
A lost girl…
A girl no one would miss…
** My 4.5 Star Review **
Okay... I need to say something to a handful of people before I sort out my thoughts for you... This is a SERIES... a SERIES... it DOES have a cliffhanger. It DOES leave you with WTF syndrome. As a matter-of-fact, you will have WTF syndrome throughout the WHOLE book. So with that being said, don't whine, complain, gripe, or chastise the author for not giving you what YOU want instead of what SHE WANTS to give you. So if you are THAT person, my advice would be to read all of them back to back once they are out. No one likes the a-hole of the bunch. Avoid it. Don't be it.
So this is the start of a story... a story that seems to be a mystery. Mystery. Yes, this story is a mystery of epic proportions. I will admit, I was a little pee'ed off but in the best way. This is nothing like anything I have read. The only thing I can compare it to would be Never Never, except it is nothing like Never Never. It just so happens both stories seem to leave you with your head cocked to the side thinking, WTF is going on; WTF happened; WTF will happen?!?!
Back to me being pee'ed off... I will tell you a little bit about the main character. She was born with a cleft lip/palate. If you don't know what that is, google it. I didn't need to. My oldest was born with a cleft palate; I already knew what they both were. I thought I was going to have a hard time reading this, because of that... I did struggle at a point here and there. Not because of her birth defect, but because of how she was treated by her family because of it. It pee'ed me off in the worst way. I was so angry. I still am. My heart broke with this poor woman.
So just what happened to Nora? Well, I don't know. Even if I did, I wouldn't tell you. I have a few suspicions. I have my theories. But I don't have enough of the story to say for sure what they are. Even if I did, I still wouldn't tell you. (Insert tongue smiley here) This definitely is the beginning of a psychological thriller I am sure to be in love with by the end!
