Bec Winter is back from the missing, the disappeared and possibly the dead. Well technically she is still possibly all those things, because the woman calling herself Bec Winter is an imposter.
At first becoming the missing girl is just a means to an end and a welcome opportunity to distance herself from her real identity and life.
However the more she learns about the young girl’s disappearance the more she feels as if she needs to find out the truth about what really happened.
Did a predator pick her off the streets? Was she taken by someone she knew? Does someone know more than they have previously admitted to?
As fake Bec becomes more comfortable in the role of the ‘returned’ daughter she starts to get a real notion of how it was before the real Bec disappeared. Of course she also comprehends that the one person who really does know for certain that she is a fake is probably the person responsible for real Bec’s disappearance. Will they just ignore her charade or is she a walking risk factor?
Snoekstra manages to bring the creepy and the crazy in equal measure. Nothing is as it seems, and hey prepare to feel uncomfortable at times. Aside from the twist in the story, the author does bring some of the desperation of families in this situation to the table. Those willing to accept a fake instead of having to accept reality.
