Girl Last Seen – Book Review

Girl Last Seen - Book Review


Kadence Mulligan’s star was rising. She and her best friend, Lauren DeSanto, watched their songs go viral on YouTube, then she launched a solo career when a nasty throat infection paralyzed Lauren’s vocal chords. Everyone knows Lauren and Kadence had a major falling-out over Kady’s boyfriend. But Lauren knows how deceptive Kadence could be sometimes. And nobody believes Lauren when she claims she had nothing to do with the disappearance. Or the blood evidence… As the town and local media condemns Lauren, she realizes the only way to clear her name is to discover the truth herself. Lauren slowly unravels the twisted life of Kadence Mulligan and sees that there was more to her than she ever knew. But will she realize she’s unknowingly playing a part in an elaborate game to cover up a crime before it’s too late?


This book had so many twists and turns! It was so good, and most of the time I didn’t see where things were heading, which I always love. I can’t stand when books are predictable, and this book did a really great job of making me think that it was going somewhere, and it would hint that one person would be guilty of something, and then bam! things would switch directions.

Kadence Mulligan is not the girl that everyone believes her to be. She puts on a show for the whole world to see, and only her best friend Lauren knows what Kadence is really capable of. So when Kadence disappears, Lauren isn’t really that bothered—and maybe even thinks Kadence is just pulling a stunt to gain attention, while everyone else in their small town is going crazy trying to find her. But then evidence comes to light that makes it look like Kadence might have been killed. And everyone starts to take a closer look at Lauren.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the mystery of some of the characters. It was intriguing to try and decipher what everyone’s motives were and who was really to blame for everything. I give this book 4/5 stars. You can order Girl Last Seen by clicking on the book’s cover image below:
