Moth Girls by Anne Cassidy

Amazon USA Amazon UK

Review by Suze
 
Tina and Petra are Mandy’s friends. One evening when they’re all together Petra dares them to go into a house that fascinates her. Mandy doesn’t want to come along. She watches her friends go inside, but they never come out again. Five years later when the house is being demolished Mandy still hasn’t been able to accept what happened in her past…

Mandy has been through a lot. She’s feeling guilty that her friends never came home while she’s still alive and well. She has no idea what happened to them and the police haven’t been able to find out either. Their disappearance might or might not be connected to a murder, but nobody knows the facts. Mandy has difficulties making new friends and she isn’t happy. Will coming to terms with the past make the present easier? It’s a good question and a great topic for a book. The story started strong and fortunately it stayed that way from beginning to end.

I read this book in one sitting. I couldn’t wait to find out the truth about that might. Mandy hasn’t been able to move on, she’s still the girl she was when her friends disappeared. And it doesn’t help that she’s that girl, the one who stayed behind, either. I loved how Anne Cassidy plays with emotions. The book has a strong plot and the ending is surprising. Moth Girls is a gripping read, a book that will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end.
