I spent a long time deciding what rating to give this book. Some review that I read, the people said it was slow...it was. They said it was boring...indeed, sometimes it was. They said that Stewart O' Nan portrayed the characters like real people facing the disappearance of an 18 year old daughter...he certainly did. He made the family and the entire small Ohio town "real"...sometimes almost too real as he allowed the reader to feel what Kim's parents, her 15 year old sister, her friends that lied to the police to begin with...and even Cooper, the family dog...felt as they struggled for 18 long months to hold their family together and endlessly...tirelessly, search for Kim...the missing part of their hearts....and how in spite of everything, life simply must go on.

A typical high school senior in a Lake Erie town, Kim Larsen goes missing. Much of the book is a macro-level view of her family’s days after it happens, not especially interesting, even mundane, except in light of the fact that they struggle to maintain a sense of normality when nothing can be normal. Everything you might want to know about a missing persons search and how one motivated family goes about it is here. Also, the draining emotion of the missing Kim being in their thoughts. Always. ( )

A taut story that gives a sense of story weaving against a constant unknown. Showcases the talent of a brillant writer ( )

I would read a phone book written by Stewart O'Nan. He knows just the perfect detail to include to immediately draw the reader in and identify with his characters and their experiences. This novel is about the aftermath of the disappearance of an 18-year old girl. The different ways in which her parents, and her sister, and her friends cope with her absence and the mystery surrounding it, are illustrated in vignettes told from various perspectives. What I loved was how the characters were all distinct and how O'Nan gave them each their own story but ultimately brought them all to the same place, as if acknowledging the importance of the paths we take, as opposed to the destination we come to.

Grief and hope quietly take over the life of a family waiting to learn what happened to their daughter. Just weeks before she is to leave for college, she vanishes. O'Nan portrays the emotional roller-coaster family and friends experience between the time she disappears and the time of her return (do not worry, that was not a spoiler). Despite the subject matter, this story lacks a key element - the ability to evoke empathy. The reader does not feel the depth of the family's or friends' pain. It is a fundamental component that takes away from the quality of O'Nan's narrative. This is usually where the author excels. As a result, the novel drags on, leaving the reader bored through out most of the book. It is unfortunate, I have come to expect more from him. ( )
