MOTH GIRLS by Anne Cassidy

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I actually found out about this book on Goodreads. And since I like a good thriller and really enjoyed The Murder Notebooks by Anne Cassidy, I was happy when I found a copy in the local library.

It's been five years since Mandy's two friends--Petra and Tina--went into a dilapidated house and never came out. The girls have been missing since, and Mandy has been hounded by guilt. She's even imagined seeing one of them.

As she starts to think about it more and now can't stay away from the site of their disappearance, she soon finds out the sinister truth about what really happened to the Moth Girls.

This story started out well enough, drew me right in. But it didn't take long for me to start pulling away from Mandy. I just couldn't get into her voice. Luckily, there's another POV and it's a really short book, otherwise I would've put it aside.

This was just okay for me. It's well written and reveals an interesting mystery, but is missing the tense, creepy factor that usually hooks me in. :/
