Books dealing with psychological issues and stories that really play with your mind have always drawn me in, and this book was probably one of the best books in that regard! Everything you thought was real was a farce, and everytime you thought you had a grasp on the story, the whole plot flipped upside down. I've heard nothing but great things about Jessica Warmans' writing, and this being the first book i've read from her, I can see why. Her writing style is fluid and captivating, and while this book was over 400 pages I flew through it pretty quickly, and didn't want the story to end.

My only gripe with this book was that a lot of questions were left unanswered, and all the secrets that were unearthed when "Alice" was missing never really came to light as to why they were kept secret from her sister. This book raises a TON of questions, but I felt like at the end some of the strings were left untied.

Overall though, this story was unique and gripping. I wouldn't really clasify this book as a thriller, because it's not frightening, at least I didn't think it was. Parts are spooky and erie, but if you do want to classify it as a thriller it is thrilling in the respect that you'll be kept at the edge of your seat, and are headed for a bumpy ride with this book. Thank God I have another Jessica Warman book sitting on my shelf waiting to be read, because I don't think it's going to be much longer until i'm craving another story like this.
