Dear Amy: A Novel

We rated this book:


Margot Lewis is a high school teacher who writes an advice column called Dear Amy for the local newspaper in her spare time. One of her students goes missing, and Margot begins to receive letters from a girl who went missing twenty years ago and was never found. Martin Forrester, a cold case criminologist, becomes involved when it is discovered that whoever has kidnapped these girls has done it multiple times. He and Margot race to discover what happened to the first girl in order to save the last one.

I had a very hard time with this book. The premise of the book sounded intriguing, but I did not find that to be the case. It felt very disjointed, and there were no likable characters in this story. It seemed like more of the book was spent making you not connect with any of the characters than developing a plot or bringing any depth to the characters or story. I barely made it through this one, so I will definitely not be reading it again.
