All the Missing Girls

Megan Miranda. Simon & Schuster, $25 (384p) ISBN 978-1-5011-0796-2
YA author Miranda (Soulprint) makes her adult debut with this fiendishly plotted thriller. Family business brings Philadelphia prep school counselor Nicolette “Nic” Farrell back to her hometown of Cooley Ridge, N.C., a place still fraught with the unsolved disappearance of her best friend, Corinne Prescott, right after their high school graduation a decade earlier. Nic unexpectedly finds herself still attracted to high school sweetheart Tyler, whose current girlfriend, Annaleise Carter, disappears the day after Annaleise texted police with questions about Corinne’s case. As Nic struggles to figure out what really happened to Corinne, who her demented father claims to have seen, she must also face some bitter truths—about her provocative BFF and herself. Miranda convincingly conjures a haunted setting that serves as a character in its own right, but what really makes this roller-coaster so memorable is her inspired use of reverse chronology, so that each chapter steps further back in time, dramatically shifting the reader’s perspective. Agent: Sarah Davies, Greenhouse Literary Agency. (June)
