by Lauren Oliver
This is my third Lauren Oliver book to write about. I saw this book awhile ago and never got around to reading it, so now I am. This book follows two very close sisters, Dara and Nick. It switches between the two characters and as well as “before” and “after” they experience a car accident that leaves them avoiding each other all the time, and Dara injured. While this is all going on, there’s also a missing little girl. To me, the accident and the missing girl have to be connected in some way because I had just read that the two events occurred near the same place.
I’m only about 70 pages in, and it’s pretty good. It’s going a little slow right now though. I want to see how the accident happened and why the two stopped talking to each other. Nick has a summer job at FanLand. There she sees that her and Dara’s old best friend, Parker, works there. The interaction between those two is a little awkward, so that makes me think something must’ve happened between them that I’ll hopefully figure out later in the book.
