Going Dark by Melissa De La Cruz


In this ripped-from-the-headlines Gone Girl meets A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder, #1 New York Times bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz weaves a white-knuckle YA thriller about a beautiful young influencer who vanishes after going on vacation with her boyfriend.


The Influencer
Amelia Ashley shares everything with her followers – her favorite hole-in-the-wall restaurants, her best fashion tips, and her European trip-of-a-lifetime with her hot boyfriend.

The Boyfriend
Josh has no choice but to return home without Amelia after she abandons him in Rome. He has no clue where she went or how her blood got in his suitcase. Why won’t anyone believe him?

The Hacker
To Harper Delgado, Amelia Ashley is just another missing white girl whipping up a media frenzy. But with each digital knot she untangles about the influencer, Harper wonders: who is Amelia Ashley?

The Other Girl
Two years ago, another girl went missing, one who never made headlines or had a trending hashtag.

The Truth
Amelia’s disappearance has captured the world’s attention. What comes next? Watch this space…

My Review:

Don’t you love reading a couple of pages of a book, then get hooked at the bookstore. So I had to bring this book home. I love the cover, and the summary sounds so good. I liked most of the characters in the book as well. I could not sleep until I knew the truth. Which was kinda crazy ending. Love those types in books.

Josh, the main character, seems innocent enough. I liked him and his pet cat. When his girlfriend doesn’t come back home with him from a trip, he becomes a prime suspect. Evidence starts stacking up against him, and no one believes him. It is up to him to find his girl before it’s too late.

Harper, a hacker, gets involved to find Ashley. The story of her disappearance, had her questioning, who is Ashley? She finds out some of the places Ashley mentioned on where she lived, and school doesn’t exist.

Where is Ashley and Who she really is?

This was a very suspenseful read. I felt bad for Josh in the book and rooting for him. This was such a good read if you’re into social media thrillers/mystery. There is a lot to uncover in this huge read, and I enjoyed every crazy moment of it. So check out Going Dark!!

Happy Reading!!!!!
