Daughter; Jane Shemilt

DaughterDaughter by Jane Shemilt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Imagine you have a normal, loving family, even if your teenage children are a bit sullen and uncommunicative at times. Then your family gets ripped apart by the disappearance of your daughter... and suddenly all the assumptions you have about your family, your friends and your life are upended. That's what happens here, as Jenny pieces together what her family members are really like and who may have taken Naomi.

The constant back-and-forth in the timeline, jumping from slightly before Naomi disappears to about two years later, gets a bit tiresome, hence the loss of a star. On the definite plus side, there's a single narrator and a good twist at the end.
