I just finished reading The Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver. The story is about two sisters who live in a quaint beach community. One sister is wild, while the other is “very normal”. They are so close it’s almost as if they are twins, except that Dara likes to break all the rules and seems to have a knack for getting into trouble. Nick, short of Nicole on the other hand always follows the rules. Everything seems perfect in their relationship until Dara starts “hooking up” with Nick’s best friend, Parker. Now Nick feels like a third wheel and she resents it. Nick does her best to move on and even starts dating another guy.

Just when Nick starts to move on with her life Nick and Dara get into a serious car accident leaving Dara scarred and Nick trying to find a way to cope with the guilt from what really happened during the accident.

It’s a great book. There’s romance and mystery and suspense as Nick tries to find Dara after she vanishes shortly after the accident.
