A little girl went missing years ago. That child is you.

A dark and gripping debut psychological thriller that won the 2017 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award, previously won by THE DRY and THE ROSIE PROJECT.

A child was stolen twenty years ago
Little Sammy Went vanishes from her home in Manson, Kentucky – an event that devastates her family and tears apart the town’s deeply religious community.

And somehow that missing girl is you
Kim Leamy, an Australian photographer, is approached by a stranger who turns her world upside down – he claims she is the kidnapped Sammy and that everything she knows about herself is based on a lie.

How far will you go to uncover the truth?
In search of answers, Kim returns to the remote town of Sammy’s childhood to face up to the ghosts of her early life. But the deeper she digs into her family background the more secrets she uncovers… And the closer she gets to confronting the trauma of her dark and twisted past.

REVIEW – An interesting idea of a story, but for me i just could not connect with the story as much as i had hoped. That is not to mean others will not enjoy the book, i liked the idea for the story a lot and the psychological thrills where there, i was left wondering what was going to happen next quite a few times. The writing for a debut author was very good, and i hope to see more from this author in the future and see their writing style develop. Worth a read, just not for me and my reading likes this time.
