Cat hasn’t been to Montgomery Falls, the town her family founded, since she was twelve years old. Since the summer she discovered she could do things that no normal twelve-year-old could do. Since she had her first kiss with Riley Fraser. Since she destroyed their friendship.
Now, five years later, she’s back and Riley has disappeared.
For the last three months no one has heard from or seen Riley. And while there are all sorts of conspiracy theories about where he went, neither the police nor his parents are any closer to finding him. When Noah, Riley’s brother, asks for help in discovering what happened, Cat is torn between wanting to learn the truth and protecting the secret that she’s been guarding ever since that summer she and Riley stopped speaking.
But then a girl is discovered floating in the river, barely alive with no knowledge of who attacked her or why. With the possibility that someone out there is hunting teens, Cat must make a choice: Use her unusual ability to discover the truth and find Riley or keep running away from a power she can’t control. Only one choice will put her in a killer’s sights…
You were never here was a good read. I liked how the mystery of the book involves a little paranormal. I like the details in the cover of the book.
I feel bad for Cat in the book. She tries to have a normal life at school, but then she end up back home. When she returns home, she finds out her ex best friend is missing. Cat may have the powers to find him. If she willing to learn how to use them.
This book was a quick read for me. You see how much the characters change over the years that Cat left town. I like the idea Cat having a gift, just wish we could explore it more in the book. Like why she has this gift and where it came from. It was a nice mystery with a twist I did like at the end. It just one be guessing game on what happen with Riley and Cat may be the key to solving it.
If you like a good mystery, then you might enjoy You Were Never Here.
