Journal Entry 1 by wingmcsarwing from Richmond, British Columbia Canada on Wednesday, October 27, 2021
Description from goodreads: Thirteen-year-old Lizzie Hood and her next-door neighbor, Evie Verver, are inseparable, best friends who swap clothes, bathing suits, and field-hockey sticks and between whom, presumably, there are no secrets. Then one afternoon, Evie disappears, and as a rabid, giddy panic spreads through the balmy suburban community, everyone turns to Lizzie for answers. Was Evie unhappy, troubled, or upset? Had she mentioned being followed? Would she have gotten into the car of a stranger?

Compelled by curiosity, Lizzie takes up her own furtive pursuit of the truth. Haunted by dreams of her lost friend and titillated by her own new power as the center of the disappearance, Lizzie uncovers secret after secret and begins to wonder if she knew anything at all about her best friend.

-------------------------
A compelling read. I think the emotions, uncertainties and ambiguities of the thirteen year old narrator are well captured but the tone feels off. It still keeps me turning the pages eagerly.

This is a very well written and very interesting read. The story of and behind child abduction, molestation and abuse of Evie Verver told from the point of view of her best friend and neighbour Lizzie. Bit of a twist on a twist on a twist at the end, too
