Sister, Missing by Sophie McKenzie
Goodreads synopsis:
Fighting back my rising panic, I stopped and took a deep breath. Think. Where could she have gone? I turned right around, looking in every direction, trying to spot the familiar silhouette of my sister. But there was no sign of her...

It's two years after the events of Girl, Missing and life is not getting any easier for sixteen-year-old Lauren, as exam pressure and a recent family tragedy take their toll. Lauren's birth mother takes Lauren and her two sisters on holiday in the hope that some time together will help, but a few days into the holiday one of the sisters disappears, under circumstances very similar to those in which Lauren was taken years before. Can Lauren save her sister, and stop the nightmare happening all over again?

I read the first book to this one, Girl, Missing, earlier on this year, and whereas it was not the best book I've ever read, it was an okay read - especially as I read it all in the same day, which kept me well-entertained for the day.

I won a signed hardback copy of this from another blogger just before I read the first book, but despite it being just as short as the first book, I've still not gotten around to reading it yet! I think I may read this if I manage to get myself into a bit of reading slum, seeing as it's so short - it could be just the thing to get me out of a rut!

I will definitely get around to it at some point this year, though!

Have you read this one? Let me know what you thought in the comments below :)

Dani, you MUST read Sister, Missing!!! Personally, I really enjoyed reading it. This one is sort of better than the first because it's so much more fast-paced and thrilling! I hope you'll get round to reading it some day :)
