Summary (from Goodreads):
“I know who you are.
When Riley first gets the postcard tucked into her bag, she thinks it’s a joke. Then she finds a birth certificate for a girl named Jane Elizabeth O’Leary hidden inside her baby book.
Riley’s parents have always been pretty overprotective. What if it wasn’t for her safety…but fear of her finding out their secret? What have they been hiding? The more Riley digs for answers, the more questions she has.
The only way to know the truth? Find out what happened to Jane O’Leary.”
This is a ridiculously fun novel, one full of twists and suspense. Even though I correctly called the ultimate answer very early on, I had a great time just going along with the ride. (If you read it, let me know if you call it, too.)
Granted, everything could have been solved much earlier and easier if Riley had just asked her parents. I get that she didn’t want to get in trouble but seriously. JUST. ASK.
My biggest problem with the novel is the fact that Riley kept talking herself out of being nervous/afraid of what’s going on. I hate when characters do that. If creepy stuff is happening to you, even if you don’t want to go to the police for whatever reason, you should at LEAST be worried enough to be on guard. And this only happened a few times throughout the course of the novel but in very, very inconvenient parts. (It’s also possible that, having watched horror movies since I was nine, I know that you never, EVER calm down and start trusting again until you know for a fact that the threat is over, and preferably not even then.)
Even so, it’s incredibly fun and a great way to kill a few hours.
