Review

If you’re looking for a quick, edge of your seat, guessing until the end thriller, Girl Last Seen, by Nina Laurin is for you! I picked this baby up at my last bookstore run. I had another book in my hand, then walked by this one. I’m glad I changed my mind. 2 missing girls. 13 years apart. Olivia Shaw has been missing for nearly a week. Lainey forces herself to look at the flyer for the missing 10-year-old. Olivia could be Lainey’s mirror image from 13 years ago. Lainey can’t help but look at posters of missing girls, wondering which one replaced her in that dark place. Whoever kidnapped her was never found, yet since she was taken there hasn’t been another. Could it be the same kidnapper? Well, you will just have to read it and find out. Believe me, you might think you know…

This book also touches on what a victim of kidnapping and abuse can go through after the incident. Some come out on top, while others feel like they are living in a shell. Their soul died a long time ago so they try to fill the void and heal the pain with addiction. So often people with addiction get looked down upon or talked about like it’s their fault. A majority of the time they are just self-medicating, dulling the pain, thinking they have nothing to lose because they’re already destroyed. Everyone has a story, and until you know that story, you have no right to pass judgment.
