Wherever Nina Lies by Lynn Weingarten

My thoughts: This book was nothing I expected. I put off reading it for so long because I thought it was going to be similar to The Clique or Gossip Girl, but with a twist. I was so wrong. At first, I hated the cover of Wherever Nina Lies; I thought it was completely wrong for the story. But now, I love it. I like how the lettering matches Nina's personality and how the cover model is holding a finger to her face, like she is keeping the secret of what happened to Nina.
Ellie's older sister has been missing for two years now, and although everyone is telling her to move on, she can't. This is her only sister. The only one she has shared memories with, the only one she admired, and the only one she will ever have. So when the chance comes for her to go looking for Nina, she grabs it tightly and doesn't let go.
Lynn wrote Wherever Nina Lies in such a way that it had me addicted. I loved how her words influenced what you thought was going to happen. I felt as if I was Ellie, and I realized a few things with her that would have been obvious if I wasn't so dragged into Ellie's character. Lynn worked in all the events and clues leading to the truth about what happened to Nina wonderfully. There were some flaws in the plot, like how Ellie agreed to drive across the country with a guy she barley knew, but I found they were easy to forget.
Wherever Nina Lies was definitely worth reading. I love Lynn's writing style, and I will be looking forward to her next book.

    It was just plain out CREEPY. Not good/suspenseful/gripping/intriguing creepy, but weird creepy. I was not looking for a creepy book when I bought it, the summery made me think it would be a nice light feel good book. Not the case.

    Not a compelling journey

    I thought was going to be a more serious/darker version of 10 Little Blue Envelopes. Dark, yes, I suppose - in a completely unrealistic, overdone way. Ridiculous "clues" and ever more clumsy travelogue and a climax that out soaps the worst day time television.

    This book was horrible!

    This book was horrible because it def isnt a young teen book. I wouldnt suggest anybody buying it. Luckily for me it was a bargain book so i didnt waste too much money on it. The bak of the book made it seem so much better than it actually is. There are lots of graphic disturbances in it. Supposedly this is the author's first book. Im sry to say but its a sry first copy of a book. I wont be wasting my money on anymore of her books. and i suggest you do the same. Its not worth ur time or energy and even money.
