Two missing girls. Thirteen years apart. Olivia Shaw has been missing since last Tuesday. She was last seen outside the entrance of her elementary school in Hunts Point wearing a white spring jacket, blue jeans, and pink boots. I force myself to look at the face in the photo, into her slightly smudged features, and I can't bring myself to move. Olivia Shaw could be my mirror image, rewound to thirteen years ago. If you have any knowledge of Olivia Shaw's whereabouts or any relevant information, please contact... I've spent a long time peering into the faces of girls on missing posters, wondering which one replaced me in that basement. But they were never quite the right age, the right look, the right circumstances. Until Olivia Shaw, missing for one week tomorrow. Whoever stole me was never found. But since I was taken, there hasn't been another girl. And now there is.

The short synopsis on the back of the book jacket will grab you. Unfortunately, the story itself is boring, predictable and for me, one of the worst books I've read.

It starts with the sad story of a young girl, Lainey/Etta held captive by a pedophile, until he surprisingly sets her free. Her struggle to come to terms with what she went through and live a life, has been told many times over. Her confrontation with her mother is superficial. What she learns from her mother about how she came to be with the pedophile, is sad and sickening but again, not new. The kidnapping/disappearance of Olivia, a 10 year old girl and her daughter brings back all the traumatic memories. The police, strangers and Olivia's parents all want her to help to find Olivia. The search brings Lainey some answers, that she may or may not have wanted to know. All this sounds like it would be suspenseful and dramatic but it's far from it.

The story is for an older teen or adult. Would not recommend it to anyone.

She's so self-destructive that I couldn't believe she'd survive.

Author is Canadian and every once in a while the Seattle setting goes awry: we don't have Peter Jackson cigarettes and we don't allow smoking in restaurants.

Story line was amazing. I give a book a great review when I can't put it down. You learn the life of a girl that is now trying to live her life after being kidnapped, and is paranoid of everyone around her. Some of the transitions from present to past experience and so on could be a little tricky.
In all I could not put the book down and read it in 3 days!
