The Missing Girl
It's been thirty years since Anna's older sister disappeared. Anna's never stopped missing her.
A gripping debut from a serious new talent, rich with atmosphere and mystery. I read through the night, desperate to find out the truth about Gabriella. Jenny Quintana writes with insight and tenderness about a child's (mis)understanding of adult failings. The sense of unease grows with every page as the story tiptoes line by beautifully-crafted line to its devastating conclusion -- Erin Kelly
