Nina was beautiful, artistic, wild . . . and adored by her younger sister, Ellie. But one day, without any warning, Nina disappeared. Two years later, Ellie can't stop thinking about her sister. Although everyone else has given up hope that Nina will return, Elile just knows her sister is out there, somewhere. If only Ellie had a clue where to look. And then she gets one, in the form of a mysterious drawing tucked into the pages of a book. Determined to find her sister, Ellie takes off on a crazy, sexy, cross-country road trip with the only person who believes she's got a chance -- her hot, adventurous new crush. Along the way, Ellie finds a few things she wasn't planning on. Like love. Mysteries. Lies. And something far ore shocking -- the truth.
From the cover, my initial thought was...oh, a book with what? back stabbing lying friends who all forgive each other in the end? (I thought it said Whenever, instead of whatever). Anyways upon reading the real synopsis, I had to read it, the book sounded amazing, and it was!!!
Ellie is sixteen, has an awesome best friend, an amazing gay boss at her coffee shop job, and a totally amazing older sister! Wait, scratch that last part, Ellie used to have an amazing older sister, but now she's gone, she disappeared two years ago, and Ellie is desperate to find her.
Led on by a simple drawing on the back of a post card, Ellie finds herself driving cross country with a totally hot - total stranger. He wants to help her, and Ellie could use it. With more clues Ellie becomes closer and closer to her Sister, and the shocking truth.
Then, just like a that, a totally amazing plot twists happens that completely wraps up every loose end, even ones you never knew were loose. It also makes you gasp and go, "oh my god! NOO! YES!" It was amazing to say the least.
I loved Lynn's writing, her story telling is magical, and I wasn't bored for even a second, and I wasn't overwhelmed. With great writing, and a consistent flow, Wherever Nina Lies is a great read and Highly reccomended. If you like this book, be sure to check out:
