Twelve years ago, Ava Rivers disappeared on Halloween night. So when Ava's family gets a call saying that she's been found, they're elated. But soon, Ava's sister, Vera, starts spending more time with her, and realizes some things aren't adding up. Overall, I just wasn't a fan of this one and couldn't connect to it, and I wouldn't recommend it.

Summer Read-A-Thon Day #36: THICKER THAN WATER

I...have a lot of mixed feelings about this book. I liked the characters and I was super interested in the plot and finding out what happened. But the reveal was very odd and I feel like it didn't work at all. I'd say skip this one and read Brigid Kemmerer's other contemporaries, because they're much better than this one.
