Missing by Ruby Speechley

My Thoughts.

Ellie is a mother who is raising three-year-old Tyler all by herself. Several pre-school mothers already dislike her, but when she is shown a missing child photo claiming to be her son, things escalate. Tyler has been by her side the whole time. Surely, it's a mistake, or is it a warning? Ellie is aware that the threats are getting worse, and she needs to find answers before her son is in real danger.

The reading was a rollercoaster, showing the internet's strength and how it can ruin lives with just a few clicks. The author addresses serious issues, including rape and sexual assault. I think the author did a good job handling this and fitting it into the story. The writing was fantastic, and I finished the story in just a few days. I was hooked and couldn't put this down. Ellie's life took a turn for the worse with every chapter, bringing new horrifying twists and turns. The writer did an excellent job developing the characters, especially Ellie. I was constantly imagining how I would react if I were in her situation. I'm excited to see what the author writes next.

Many thanks to @netgalley, @BoldwoodBooks & @rubyspeechley for the opportunity to read it.
