Lost Girls by Merrie Destefano
Description: Yesterday, Rachel went to sleep listening to Taylor Swift, curled up in her grammy’s quilt, worrying about geometry. Today, she woke up in a ditch, bloodied, bruised, and missing a year of her life.
She doesn’t recognize the person she’s become: she’s popular. She wears nothing but black.
Black to cover the blood.
And she can fight.
Tell no one.
She’s not the only girl to go missing within the last year…but she’s the only girl to come back. She desperately wants to unravel what happened to her, to try and recover the rest of the Lost Girls.
But the more she discovers, the more her memories return. And as much as her new life scares her, it calls to her. Seductively. The good girl gone bad, sex, drugs, and raves, and something darker…something she still craves—the rush of the fight, the thrill of the win—something she can’t resist, that might still get her killed…
The only rule is: There are no rules.
I’m currently reading this book on the side and LOVING IT. Holy cow it is so good. It’s got so much mystery and twists. Just when you think you have an idea of what is going on something happens and you’re thrown for another loop. Merrie was kind enough to send me a copy as thanks for hosting her on the blog a few months back and I’ll be honest, I misplaced the book almost immediately. I went through a cleaning spurt and rearranged our reading room (second living room) and just found this a few weeks back up in the spare bedroom. I have no idea how it even got there. Either way I highly recommend this book, it is super interesting and totally different from what I have read before.
