Four years ago, Nico’s older sister, Sarah, disappeared without a trace. She was supposed to be meeting her boyfriend in the park but never made it, making Nico the last person to see her sister. After a long investigation and countless false leads, Nico thinks her sister is dead and has given up hope she is every coming back. And a part of Nico is glad to be free of Sarah’s daily cruelties.
Then they get a call. A girl in a children’s shelter claims her name is Sarah Morris. Nico and her parents fly to see her and make a visual identification. Sarah has finally been found. But amnesia coupled with malnutrition and abuse has changed her from the bright, good at everything, casually cruel girl Nico remembers to a kind, gentle girl.
Is this really Sarah? And if she is, what happened to her to change her so much?
This book was very good, a quick fast read. The relationships between all the characters was realistic and intriguing, especially between Nico and Sarah. The author keeps you guessing until the end, but the end was very satisfying!
