The Herbert sisters are completely ignorant of the man watching them. They don't realize his growing and dangerous fascination. They are completely oblivious to the fact that their safety is in jeopardy.

It's only a matter of time now.

THE MISSING GIRL is a tremendous read. Thrilling, suspenseful, and riveting, Mazer easily pulls the reader into the intricately woven story, causing shock, horror, and yet compassion as well.

This is a bold story that will rise above and beyond your expectations as the author charms her way into the readers' hearts through her beautiful characters and terrifying plot.

This is one book that is impossible to put down.

Very Creepy but Compelling!

This book is told in alternating viewpoints of 5 sisters and one very creepy unnamed man. The man is watching the sisters and we âhearâ his thoughts about each of them. The 5 sisters; Beauty, Mim, Stevie, Fancy and Autumn are completely unaware of the man watching them.

The author pulls you right into the girl's lives and they each become real to you. That's why the man's stalking of them is increasing disturbing, because we care about these girls. I really wanted to shout at them to Be Careful! several times.

A good quick YA thriller with no blood nor gore.

To be honest, I really wanted to quit this book about halfway through. But a friend of mine encouraged me to finish it and so I did and it did in fact get better, but that's about the nicest thing I can say about it. The book is from various viewpoints which I find intriguing in other books but in this book not so much, as one of the viewpoints was from the youngest sister and every time I came upon a chapter from her I cringed. The way in which she spoke was very annoying and took away from the story. Additionally, the ending was anticlimactic and somewhat expected. This was just an okay book. It doesn't make me want to read anything else from this author.
