Ooh I enjoyed this, one of those books I was a bit annoyed at having to put down. I'm not sure I'd agree with the last line of the blurb How far would you go to find your two lost friends? - I think it's much more about the emotional and psychological effect losing (quite literally) Petra and Tina has on Mandy.

I often think just how gut-wrenchingly awful it would be if someone close just vanished - how unbearable the not knowing must be. I think this comes through with the brief glimpses of Alison, Tina's mother, we get dotted throughout the book.

I felt quite uncomfortable learning of the relationship between Petra and her Father, but perhaps that is more due to my own children, I don't know.

The novels flows well, switching to differing viewpoints and timelines with ease. It never causes any trouble with confusion between characters; each having their own strong portrayal.

I was a little annoyed at the ending, which is hard for me to go into without spoiling the book, but it felt, I'm not even sure I know how to describe it, just a bit unbelievable. Not it the sense that it didn't happen, but surely ALL likely possibilities had been checked. I mean we all know these things happen, but was it a lazy ending? I don't know.

Anyway, waffle over. Moth Girls is an enjoyable, fairly quick read. And I'll end as I started; I liked it!
