The Night She Disappeared

“If Kayla is alive, I wonder if she really wants to be.”

The night Kayla disappeared while delivering pizza wasn’t even her night to work.  That thought haunts Gabie, who should have been the one on delivery that night, and Drew, who took the order without realizing the delivery address didn’t exist.

Now the entire town is caught up in the drama of Kayla’s kidnapping, wondering if she’ll ever be found…and whether she’s dead or alive.

My Review: I flew through this book. Was Gabie the intended target? Who took Kayla? Will they ever find her and if they do, will it already be too late? The story is told from the POV of Gabie, Drew, and several other characters (you’re welcome for the lack of spoilers!). Mixed in are 911 transcripts, news reports, police documents and even Kayla’s missing persons poster. Trust me, once you start this book, you won’t put it down until it’s over. The Night She Disappeared by April Henry is a fast-paced, thrilling mystery and it’s available now at the library.

    Hey Katie, I’m glad you liked it! Like a lot of my books, it was inspired by something that really happened, in this case a guy who called in a fake pizza order and asked for another girl first.
