When two seven-year-old girls go missing, all are under suspicion. Calli Clark is a dreamer. A sweet, gentle girl, Callie suffers from selective mutism, brought on by a tragedy she experienced as a toddler. Her mother Antonia tries her best to help, but is confined by marriage to a violent husband. Petra Gregory is Calli's best friend, her soul mate and her voice. But neither Petra nor Calli have been heard from since their disappearance was discovered. Now Calli and Petra's families are bound by the question of what has happened to their children. As support turns to suspicion, it seems the answers lie trapped in the silence of unspoken secrets.

I love this author's stories and her writing style.. Her stories are so engaging. This was a book you could not put down. It is about 2 little girls who disappear and the search to find them. the chapters are written from the perspective of some of the people involved - one of the girls, the parents, the law enforcement officers, siblings. Makes the story very interesting. It is a suspenseful book which keeps you guessing till the end.

Great book! I loved the suspense! First book I've read from this author, and I'm sure to read more!

Really fast read, i think I was done with it in 5 hours or so. It's an interesting book, great story, but the end seems rather abrupt; like the author ran out of time and absolutely had to end the book.

Good, fast-paced read. A bit too simplistic for me.
