"Songs for the Missing" is the story of Kim and her family. One hot July day, the summer before she is supposed to leave for college, Kim fails to show up for work one day. The story continues as her family and friends go through the process of trying to find Kim.

Based on a true story, "Songs for the Missing" is a book that definitely makes you think. What if Kim were your child? Your sister? Your friend? What would you do to find her? I loved that "Songs for the Missing" is a book that makes you think and sympathize with the characters (I hope you can't empathize).

"Songs for the Missing" will be released in October. I recommend that you check it out. The reasons that I didn't rate this particular book higher is because it never gave me that "can't put it down" feeling. Also, the little "synopsis" on the back gives away the entire story. So, if you don't like knowing how something will end, don't read the back! Read more at
