Pretty Is


Book # 142 Read in 2015
Pretty Is by Maggie Mitchell

This was a good read.  I enjoyed the upstate NY/Adirondack setting since that is local to me.  Two girls, Lois and Carly May, are abducted by a man who brings them to upstate NY to an isolated cabin.  He seems to be trying to "save them" from "female corruption".  Eventually, the police find the cabin and rescue the girls.  The book then spends the bulk of time years later, when the girls are grown ups.  Lois is a college professor and Carly May has reinvented herself as Chloe, an actress.  Lois, under a pen name, has written a novel loosely based on the abduction and that book is being made into a movie.  Chloe has a part in the movie and the two will be reunited for the first time in years.  Lois also has issues with one of her students, who is stalking her and questioning her about the abduction.  Is he the abductor's son?  Overall, this book was well written and interesting.  It had a lot of twists and turns to it.  I received a copy of this book from Amazon Vine in exchange for a honest review.
