Don't try to find me. Though the message on the kitchen white board is written in Marley's hand, her mother Rachel knows there has to be some other explanation. Marley would never run away.
As the days pass and it sinks in that the impossible has occurred, Rachel and her husband Paul are informed that the police have "limited resources." If they want their 14-year-old daughter back, they will have to find her themselves. Desperation becomes determination when Paul turns to Facebook and Twitter, and launches FindMarley.com.
But Marley isn't the only one with secrets.
With public exposure comes scrutiny, and when Rachel blows a television interview, the dirty speculation begins. Now, the blogosphere is convinced Rachel is hiding something. It's not what they think; Rachel would never hurt Marley. Not intentionally, anyway. But when it's discovered that she's lied, even to the police, the devoted mother becomes a suspect in Marley's disappearance.
Is Marley out there somewhere, watching it all happen, or is the truth something far worse.
First off let me say that this was one of those books that I call "Out of my comfort zone reading" books....
It deals with a troubled family and their 14 year old run-away daughter. It touches on the subject of social media, and the dangers of meeting someone online. It is almost like reading a headline in the newspaper.
It was an interesting book to read and kept me on the edge of my seat, a page-turner, to say the least. The characters in the story were not very likable. And the ending was a big disappointment. I felt like I had been cheated...not a satisfying ending at all...I liked it enough to award it 3 stars.
This book was provided for me to read and give an honest review by Harper Collins Publishers.
I did not receive any type of compensation for reading and reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers and authors I am under no obligation to write a positive review.
