This book is so heart warming and almost made me cry at the end. Such an improvement from the first book. It is absolutely sad and so beautiful. I loved the ending because it really made you begin to think of how you view yourself and other people and it hints the fact that your not the only person in the world, you need to care about other people too and their emotions and feelings, which really makes me smile. Although Lauren and Shelby were never close during this book, it is lovely to see th ...more

I liked Girl, Missing and enjoyed Sister, Missing, but there's this thing that bothers me with Sophie Mckenzie's books. THEY'RE ALL THE SAME!!
The Medusa Project are my favourite and were the first books I read by Mckenzie, so afterwards when I read GM I couldn't help but feel disappointed that it was the same fast paced book with a main character who's too young to understand the consequences of their actions.
Then I went on to read Blood Ties and felt exactly the same

This is a really exciting book it has a very unpredictable story line and there is a huge plot twist. I would recommend this book.
4 stars. I cut one star because I guessed two major plots in the story before they even happened..
It's one of those very few times that I've took so long to finish a fast-paced book, as I'm always done reading within a day or two, at max..
I really like the book. I'm not the kind of person who can handle or enjoy reading too many twists or turns, but, I definitely enjoyed this story.
I admit, I sobbed over the always "hard-hearted" Shelby's demise. She was "cold/hard-hearted" at least according t

I thought that this book was written much better than the first in the trilogy, simply because the descriptions and explanations were much better.
Though I feel as if because of the theme of kidnapped people the author is limited in what they can write.
Since the last book the characters have developed a lot, which I thought was good.
I really liked/hated the ending because it was so unpredictable.

This is the second book of the missing trilogy, which is my favourite trilogy I have read so far.

This story leads on from the last one, and the main climax is that the main characters sister gets kidnapped, and it is about the journey to find her, and all the obstacles the occurred.

This is an action and drama book, and it is very tense and exciting.

I didn’t ever want to put this book down because there was always a new problem that’s had to be faced along the journey.

“Nobody does it alone. Not even me” - probably the only quote in the book that made a lasting impression on me.
Overall the book was incredibly far fetched but it was jam packed with adventure (if you can call getting kidnapped and almost killed twice an adventure). Losing one of the protagonists was the only realistic plot twist, which made it slightly more believable. On to the last book!

This book is by far my favourite in the trilogy, I recommend this book as you get to connect with the characters and everything is very unexpected.

This book was the second in the series and was intriguing but tragic at the same time.

This book was a bit repetitive of the first book but I still liked it because it was very clever to use a different sister and some of the same people from the first book.

A very interesting sequel following the first book. I think I enjoyed the added suspense within this book. I would recommend it and rate it 4/5 stars!!

I have the first book three/three.five stars because it was good but I found some situations unrealistic and sometimes the plot wasn’t for me but this book was so much better. It was a massive improvement from the first book in many ways.

The ending left me close to tears. The dialogue, the hospital scenes, the realising. It’s all so incredibly beautiful and heartwarming. After the book being a three, it turned into a four very quickly.

There was a lot more action and the characters were better d

It is the second book in the trilogy missing girls series by Sophie Mackenzie.i quite enjoyed the book because it foreshadowed what was going to happen.
the story is full of mystery and suspense just like the first ends on a cliffhanger as there is a third story after this book.

It isn't a secret that I didn't enjoy Girl, Missing as much as I would've liked but this book kicks things up a notch and is much more enjoyable! While I still wasn't head-over-heels in love with the characters, I found myself becoming engaged in the large amounts of action and complex mysteries. Years after the release of the first book, Sister, Missing is a great improvement to the series.

Overall, this was a good sequel but it wasn’t a great sequel. I know that you shouldn’t compare sequels to the original novel, but in this case it’s more or less impossible to not compare; it covers a lot of similar themes, ideas and even content, which was a bit of a disappointment, to be honest. There are good elements to this novel, for e

My first book by Sophie McKenzie was "Blood Ties", and I then red "Blood Ransom", which I both liked very much. I tried "Girl, Missing" and found it not as good as my first two, but I still liked it (even though I felt it was sometimes hard to believe). This second book I didn't like. It had far too much action for my liking, and each time you thought it was finally over, it wasn't and something even harder to believe happenend. Also, the main character can't be so dumb, I felt, to make all thes ...more

This book is an amazing sequel to the first book Girl, Missing. The problem is ever so exiting and faced paced. I guarantee this is a not a put down book :). I would recommend this book to anyone who likes books packed with suspense and thrill and mystery. Another thing I really like about this book is that it incorporates a little love story, and I think that just ties the bow around the present. :D

The genre was a thriller and is book 2 of a series of 3 books. I really enjoyed it as some new characters were introduced but I was still the same main characters. It is super exiting and action lacked and gets straight into the story.the ending is sad. I would definitely recommend

Spoiler free review (:
This book had my mixed opinions. In this review I will cover some of the good parts and some of the bad parts throughout the book (all opinions are my opinions only).
On the good side of things- Lauren and Maddie's relationship is so innocent and beautiful. And has been written in a heart warming way. I loved how the storyline from the previous book (Girl missing) tied in with a sense that is hard to describe. My favourite part of the book was the last 10 chapters. It kept

This was a great installment that could have been longer, the story was so fast paced with a new development, secret or kidnapping happing every other page, i couldn't put this on down! 2 years after Girl, Missing , Lauren and her newer family are in England for the summer, but drastic turns appear and someone close to Lauren is taken in a spilt second.

This was definitely not as good as the first book in the series. The first one was fairly predictible, but still a pleasant to read and entertaining story with carefully crafted characters.

This was definitely not as interesting, half the characters are new or were minor characters in the previous book, their motives are not clearly explained, the story doesn't just feel predictible this time - it feels far-fetched and borderline ridiculous.

This book was beyond awful. The plot is way too packed with cheesy unrealistic things. The characters are so plain, disappointing and predicable from the first quarter of the book I knew basically what was going to happen! I don’t think this would have been quite as bad though if the writing wasn’t so ammature, it just makes this book even worse. I skim read the whole thing after a few chapters and still had to force myself to read it despite desperate boredom. I really thought I would enjoy it ...more

I read Sophie McKenzie's previous book Girl Missing before I read this. I loved Girl, missing as I thought it was exciting, gripping and very realistic.
So, I was excited to read Sister, Missing when I got it. However, I did not enjoy it nearly as much as I thought I would.
Compared to Girl, missing I thought this book wasn't believable and I didn't think this plot was as interesting as the plot in the previous book.
