All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda (17/52)

Writing a page-turner is difficult, keeping the action moving, characters in constant motion, and a plot complex enough to be worthwhile. Miranda does this and also throws in the narrative twist of writing in reverse chronology. By revealing the end before the beginning, the reader is left unsettled and unsure of what we know. Her big reveal at the end (beginning) of the story is oddly disappointing, though the process of getting there is oddly satisfying. The mysteries of memory are wrestled and tamed. Great easy read. Highly enjoyable.
