#MMBBR #Review #FirstLine #SophieLastSeen by #MarleneAdelstein via #partner @RAPublishing who provided a #free #reviewcopy


Six years ago, ten-year-old Sophie Albright disappeared from a shopping mall. Her mother, Jesse, is left in a self-destructive limbo, haunted by memories of her intense and difficult child, who was obsessed with birds. Trapped in her grief and guilt, Jesse stumbles through her workdays at a bookstore and spends her off hours poring over Sophie’s bird journals or haunting the mall to search for the face of her missing child.

When Star Silverman, Sophie’s best friend, starts working at the bookstore, Jesse is uncomfortable around the sarcastic teen, who is a constant reminder of her daughter. But Star has secrets of her own, and her childhood memories could be the key to solving Sophie’s disappearance.

With help from Star and Kentucky “Tuck” Barnes, a private detective on the trail of another missing girl, Jesse may finally get some closure, one way or the other.

Sophie Last Seen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
#FirstLine ~ The feel of the smooth glass stone between her index finger and thumb could always calm Jesse Albright, especially when she felt the start of a panic attack.

This book was intense, an emotional roller coaster. I was totally immersed in this story, in the characters and their struggles. It was one of those reads that made me feel something instantly. This book is based around a fear that every parent has or has had at one point in their lives, to have their child disappear. What lengths would you go through to find your child? Could you move on or would the loss consume you? This story broke me apart and eventually put me back together. It was a tearjerker and one I will not soon forget! Such a deeply moving story and a great book club choice.
