Darby Thorne is a college student stranded by a blizzard at a highway rest stop in the middle of nowhere. She’s on the way home to see her sick mother. She’ll have to spend the night in the rest stop with four complete strangers. Then she stumbles across a little girl locked inside one of their parked cars. There is no cell phone reception, no telephone, no way out because of the snow, and she doesn’t know which one of the other travelers is the kidnapper. Full of shocking twists and turns, this beautifully written novel will have you on the edge of your seat. Who is the little girl? Why has she been taken? And how can Darby save her?
My god, this book is AMAZING!
It literally grabs you from the first few pages and does not let go until the last. It is so atmospheric and tense and claustrophobic; the creepy, snowed-in rest stop and the howling weather are perfectly described. The story is full of twists and turns and shocks and action and I read it in a little over a day.
And oh my god, the suspense! I read most of the book holding my breath and with a lump of anxiety sitting in the pit of my stomach (in a good way!) This is a brilliant, exciting roller coaster of a story and I could totally picture Kate Mara kicking some serious ass as Darby in a film version.
