"As original as it is addictive, this story puts a knot in your gut from the opening pages. Then, through the wizardry of its unconventional structure, that knot tightens and tightens and will not let go until the final pages and even then the story continues to haunt you. Vividly rendered, psychologically complex, and narratively acrobatic, "All The Missing Girls" is, above all, totally gripping."--Tim Johnston, New York Times bestselling author of Descent"

"Fiendishly plotted...Miranda convincingly conjures a haunted setting that serves as a character in its own right, but what really makes this roller-coaster so memorable is her inspired use of reverse chronology, so that each chapter steps further back in time, dramatically shifting the reader's perspective."
--"Publishers Weekly," starred review
"Darkly nostalgic....Miranda takes a risk by telling the story backward, but it pays off with an undroppable thriller, plenty of romantic suspense, and a fresh take on the decades-old teenage-murder theme."
--"Booklist"
Some girl books worth a deeper look this season include"The Girls," by Emma Cline, and Megan Miranda s"All the Missing Girls."
--"The Rumpus"
Looking for the next Gone Girl?"All the Missing Girls"is heir apparent a book that you can't help but whip through, and Miranda is a master of leaving just enough tantalizing clues to keep you from pausing between chapters. Particularly as you get toward the end and realize the role that Nic and her brother may have played in the disappearances of both young women and how sometimes accidents and malevolent intent collide it becomes increasingly difficult to tear your eyes from the page.
--"Refinery 29"
It s like if"Memento"was written byMegan Abbott or Gillian Flynn.
--Book Riot
The twist here is that the story of the disappearance of two teen girls 10 years apart linked by the narrator who was friends with one and knew the other is told backwards.
--"Hollywood Reporter"
A really intense and extraordinarily clever novel, taking that entirely popular premise of a missing person and turning it on its head If you love your psychological thrillers but would like to see a new take then I would highly recommend"All the Missing Girls." In fact if you are a fan of great writing, great storytelling and can appreciate subtleties of plot and character then I would highly recommend"All The Missing Girls"no matter your preferred reading genre.

--"Houston Chronicle"
Major props to Megan Miranda for creating such a suspenseful and unpredictable storyline.
--Reads in the Family
It s a juicy read that kept me transfixed through most of my Memorial Day weekend .The format is unique and very effective. It creates an electric sense of suspense I haven t seen elsewhere in a long, long time Miranda is a writer of formidable talent, and frankly, I can t wait to see what else she has in store for us.
--Seattle Book Mama
This book was so good, I could hardly put it down, despite how busy I ve been. The backwards order in which the story was told made the entire thing feel fresh at a time when all the thrillers are starting to seem the same to me. I loved it!
--Doing Dewey Decimal
That book kept me on a reading marathon until I finished The characters are remarkably crafted and believable, from the dialogue to the story set up, Miranda does a superb job of dragging the reader right into Cooley Ridge with Nic The main characters are likable and by the time you get to the hit me in the face ending, you almost have sympathy and understanding for the sinister.
--Daily Republic
I can t believe the author pulled it off the best thriller I've read in a long time.
--A Musings
this one is a great exemplar of what an author can do with this genre!
--All Books Considered
This was a well written and interesting murder mystery. The author moves the story backwards, which could be confusing to some, but it works better this way Highly recommended.
--Pulp Lair
I've never read a book like this and I can honestly say that Miranda executed it perfectly!... without a doubt one of the most thrilling reads I've read this year, so far.
--Sassy and Dangerous
The story is told in reverse order, and what can seem gimmicky works in this expertly paced tale that will leave you furiously flipping the pages eager to know the truth.
