Ellie Mack was the perfect daughter. She was fifteen years old, the youngest of three. Loved by her parents, friends and teachers and one half of a golden teenage couple. Ellie was days away from an idyllic summer break after exams with her whole life ahead of her.

And then she left.

Now her mother, Laurel Mack, is really trying to rebuild her life. It’s been ten years since her daughter went missing, seven years since the end of her marriage and just months since the last clue in Ellie’s case was uncovered. When she meets an unexpectedly charming man in a coffee shop, no one is more surprised than Laurel at how quickly their flirtation turns into something deeper. Before she knows it, she’ll be meeting Floyd’s daughters, and the youngest, Poppy, takes Laurel’s breath away.

Because looking at the Poppy is like looking at Ellie. And now the unanswered questions she worked so hard to solve begin to haunt Laurel anew. Where has Ellie gone? Did she really run away from home, as police have long suspected, or was there a more sinister reason for her disappearance? Who is Floyd really? And why is her daughter Laurel so poignantly reminiscent of her own missing child?

The basic premise of this story is impossible. Not just weird, impossible. Period. In this day and age, there is no way that the basic plot of this book could happen. It MAYBE it could have happened in the 19th century, but not in the 2000s. There are just too many holes in the villain’s plan and the whole thing would inevitably have “fallen apart”.

I am not saying that the girl who disappears could not have disappeared in the way described. That could certainly happen, and probably happens more often than we care to admit. No, what I’m saying is that the “mystery” here, the “plot twist” that keeps the book going, just isn’t possible. It couldn’t be done by this villain or any other villain that ever existed.

And yet it is ALMOST convincing. The author is so brilliant at creating characters and so gifted with words that the story grabs you and won’t let go even as the impossible plot is revealed.

A fifteen-year-old girl disappears under very mysterious circumstances. His bones are later discovered and the family has “closure”. Except not really. In reality, there is never any closure under such circumstances, and the author wishes to show that there is. Another thing that satisfactorily demonstrates is that people never wonder what they look like.

We all have our hidden sides, and sometimes those hidden sides hide something tragic, terrible, or just plain sad. None of us are what we seem to be. But all of this has already been said, by this author and many others. She’s trying something beyond that. She tries to show that some of our most mundane beliefs have an inverse.

I think what happened here is that the author felt the need to make a statement and the only way she could find to make that statement was with this action. It is not too revealing to say that the statement is this: Not all monsters are human.

Note that I did NOT say: not all humans are monsters. This claim has been made many times by many authors and Lisa Jewell herself is one of them. But the statement he makes here is quite different. The fact is, not all monsters are men. The female mind is just as capable of controlling monsters as the male mind, and one of the exquisitely designed characters in this book is excellent proof of that.

With her talent for creating flesh-and-blood characters, Ms. Jewell manages to make the statement. At the same time, it makes an even more important one: no good person is completely good and no bad person is completely bad. Humans have the potential to become monsters. Like it or not, monsters are people.
