It had to be Riley Jo. She was certain. . .wasn’t she? But when Abby Cummings tells her mother she thought she saw her sister at the store, her mother quickly dismisses the idea. After all, Riley Jo and their father had been missing for years. Presumably dead. Yet Abby cannot ignore her intuition. Telling her friend J. D., they investigate. But J. D. may know more about the disappearance than he’s telling, or even realizes. And as they work to uncover what happened, all they have to go on is blind faith. Will it be enough. . .especially considering what the truth might be?

It has haunted her family all of this time, with know idea of what happened to them. One day, while in town, Abby sees a girl whom she swears is her little sister, Riley Jo. She's able to get a picture of her, but when she shows her family, they just think she's crazy. Not willing to give, she begins asking around town if anyone knows this little girl. The only person on her side is her best friend, Jay. When Abby gets two anonymous phone calls warning her to leave the matter alone or pay the price, she's even more determined to find out what happened. Jay takes it upon himself to help as well, and they find themselves in a terrible fix.
I'm typically not as into reading suspense stories, but I really liked this one. It really kept me interested and wondering what was going to happen next. I really wasn't sure what the outcome would be, and I liked that I wasn't able to guess ahead of time on some of the events.
