Remember how many lies we told, Molly? It’s enough to make my head spin. You were wild when I met you, and I was mad for you. But then something happened. And now you’re gone.

But don’t worry. I’ll find you. I just need to sift through the story of us to get to where you might be. I’ve got places to look, and a list of names.

The police have a list of names, too. See now? There’s another lie. There is only one person they’re really looking at, Molly.

And that’s yours truly.

I received this book from NetGalley and Entangled Publishing as an ARC for an honest review.

I am totally one of those people who judges books by their cover. The prettier the cover the more likely I am to read a book. I know, I know shameful. I just can’t help it. And I sure couldn’t help it with this book cover. I was in love with this cover when I first saw it and after reading the description I needed to obtain a copy of this ARC so I could read the book.

When I first read the description to this book I thought it might be something that I would be really interested in. I’ve been looking for a new mystery/thriller to read and this seemed to be exactly what I was looking for. The book is told in two perspectives. One of Molly and one of Cobain and the timeline goes back-and-forth between the Past and the Present. I really enjoy novels that have more than one point of view telling the story, it lets you know what the other main characters are thinking and feeling throughout the novel.

At the start of the book we are at immediately thrown into chaos. Molly has gone missing, so the police are interrogating Cobain to see if he knows where Molly might have gone and he is the main suspect in the case. Once I started reading it, I felt kind of bored. I didn’t connect with Molly or Cobain which made it harder for me to read since I couldn’t connect with either of them. I didn’t really understand the “relationship” that they had. It really confused me because they didn’t really act like a couple and Cobain seemed to be a little strange and obsessed with Molly and he came off as really really creepy to me. The book was fast paced and easy to read. I was on the edge of my seat toward the end of the book, because like Cobain, I had a list of people who I thought might have Molly. This was the one part of the book that really had all of my attention, the rest was just unsatisfying.

I’m going to give this book a solid ★★★ stars. I just don’t think this was the young adult mystery/thriller that was up my alley. Could you possibly like it? Absolutely. It’s not a terrible story by any means it just wasn’t for me.
