It's interesting to see that the marketing blurbs compare this book to Gone Girl and Reconstructing Amelia. While I understand the temptation to hype every book coming on the market told from the point of view from two (or more) unreliable narrators, I think that marketing Don't Try to Find Me along those lines is a disservice to this book. The book is more along the lines of Reconstructing Amelia with much of the mystery and suspense coming from how little the parents in question know about their teenage children. Luckily Don't Try to Find Me can have a happier ending since Marley has only vanished and is trying to disappear from the grid and start a new life, but the questions of just how well you can and should know your children and what you can and should know about their friends (both in real life and on-line) will linger with you long after the final page is turned.
If you like to be kept on the edge of your seat, don’t miss reading DON’T TRY TO FIND ME. It was a quick read, but very intense. It could even be called a thriller.
Wow. Don't Try to Find Me is going to be a tough one to review! This book had so many different sides and layers; it's almost hard to absorb. It's also REALLY hard to talk about this book without spoilers. Those kind of reviews are always hard to write!
But, despite the unlikeable characters, DON’T TRY TO FIND ME had me glued to the pages and had my heart racing. The suspense was quite high. My fear for Marley had me tense while I was reading the book as well as when I was waiting to return to see what was going to happen. I still am anxious as I am writing this...definitely the sign of a GOOD book.
