One day, walking to school with friends, they witness a horrible act--or do they? Eulabee and Maria Fabiola vehemently disagree on what happened, and their rupture is followed by Maria Fabiola's sudden disappearance--a potential kidnapping that shakes the quiet community and threatens to expose unspoken truths."-- Publisher's description.

This book grabbed me being about adventurous girls growing up in San Francisco in the 80s. But it was kind of a snoozer for me. It showed the boring and just for show lives of the wealthy which isn’t something that has much depth of me.

I loved this book for its tight style and lively characters. Recommended.

Set in the mid-1980s, the novel focuses around a bunch of 13 year old girls growing up in the Sea Cliff neighborhood of San Francisco. It was a fast read that pulled me in just enough to want to finish it but didn't leave me feeling like it was exceptional. Perhaps my discomfort stems from the portrayal of female friendships, the awkwardness of adolescents, and the cruelty of middle school girls.

The way this book was written told rather than showed and even the moments of description felt a bit lacking. This was a story about people's monotonous lives and the pitfalls that come with wealth, privilege, and boredom. While, for me, this read didn't ignite any personal interest in the characters or plot, there will be plenty of people that find this book incredibly interesting. You may appreciate the commentary on lost innocence and changing times.

This book was well-written and a quick read. It was a reminder about how quickly teenage friendships can shift and turn without warning. And how life experience and time can change how we view events. There were some parts of the story where the events were too unbelievable. But overall it was a good study in female relationships.

This was not a book for me. It was Ok.

But I do think it has a audience for sure. For anyone who likes to read about teen girls and what makes them tick, how they may act,/react various situations.
Deals with trust, friendship, mystery , secrets and more.

I was just not in the right frame of mind for it at this time.

Well written , thoughts and dialogue certainly reflect how young teens may think, speak and act.

Well presented, just not for me.

Set in a wealthy San Francisco neighborhood in the 1980’s, the story of private school friends takes us into the minds of schoolgirls where the world centers around them. When the friends start disappearing, Eulabee tries to figure out what happen. The story is light up until a classic white car shows up in the neighborhood. The mystery is never solved. In 2019 a chance meeting sheds new light on what could have happened forty years ago. It’s the story of a dissolving friendship that begins when Eulabee says she didn’t see the man in the white car fondling himself as her three friend scontend happen. Labeled both a traitor and a slut, Eulabee feels isolated and even more so she wants to figure out what happened. This is a quick and engaging story.
