Yesterday, Rachel went to sleep listening to Taylor Swift, curled up in her grammy’s quilt, worrying about geometry. Today, she woke up in a ditch, bloodied, bruised, and missing a year of her life.
She doesn’t recognize the person she’s become: she’s popular. She wears nothing but black.
Black to cover the blood.
And she can fight.
Tell no one.
She’s not the only girl to go missing within the last year…but she’s the only girl to come back. She desperately wants to unravel what happened to her, to try and recover the rest of the Lost Girls.
But the more she discovers, the more her memories return. And as much as her new life scares her, it calls to her. Seductively. The good girl gone bad, sex, drugs, and raves, and something darker…something she still craves—the rush of the fight, the thrill of the win—something she can’t resist, that might still get her killed…
The only rule is: There are no rules.
This is one book I could not put down. I was glued to the pages trying to figure out what happened to Rachel.
This is definitely one of those books it’s best to go in blind so that the story unfolds around you. It’s full of suspense and mystery. How did Rachel become a Lost Girl? And will she ever figure out who she has become?
The characters were phenomenal. You wanted to get inside each of their minds and see what their role is in Rachel’s life. Some of the characters I couldn’t stand, but some of them I couldn’t help but feel for, especially Rachel. I can’t imagine not remembering a year of my life.
I also loved the friendships. Each one held a significance to Rachel finding out what happened. Some of them you don’t expect, and others you hope will work out.
Rachel’s story is dark, twisty, and will have you completely engrossed in the story.
