I loved this book. It got the goosebumps , my idea of a good scary story. A young girl gets bullied at school in front of everyone and runs off texting her mother she was staying at her best friend’s house for a sleepover which they often did. The friend calls her mother later worried about the girl and the mother has a panic attack. The girl has disappeared. She’s been kidnapped by a very evil man. This story takes you through twists and turns and scares you and you can’t put the book down. I can’t recommend it enough enough.
