Pretty Girls by Karen Slaughter
Trigger Warning: Rape, torture, abuse, pedophilia
Holy shit. The twists. The turns. The gore and horror. What the fuck did I just read???
I will leave you with only the Goodreads blurb, followed by my reactions at specific points in the book (and the trigger warnings). Anything more is too spoilery. Just know that if you are triggered by the above things, do not read this books. There is some graphic shit that goes down.
Twenty years ago Claire Scott’s eldest sister, Julia, went missing. No one knew where she went – no note, no body. It was a mystery that was never solved and it tore her family apart.
Now another girl has disappeared, with chilling echoes of the past. And it seems that she might not be the only one.
Claire is convinced Julia’s disappearance is linked.
But when she begins to learn the truth about her sister, she is confronted with a shocking discovery, and nothing will ever be the same…
