Nic is the only member of her family that still believes her mother did not just walk away from them. She doesn’t believe the note left behind in her mother’s hotel room that says “Don’t Look for Me”.
Molly, Nic’s mother, has many reasons to run. Five years ago, she struck and killed her youngest child in the street with her car. Earlier on the day she went missing, her middle child, Evan, shunned her after his football game. Her daughter, Nic, yelled horrible things at her the last time she saw her. Even her husband, John, doesn’t love Molly anymore and is probably having an affair. Now she’s run out of gas. The gas station she walks to is closed due to the impending hurricane. It will too cold at night to stay in the car so she starts walking. Soon, a pickup stops and offers her a ride. There is a young girl riding shotgun. What could go wrong? She jumps in the backseat…
The story alternates between Molly and Nic’s point of views. And it is a twisty story they tell. Don’t Look for Me is a heart-throbbing adrenaline ride until the satisfying conclusion. If you like cinematic thrillers, this is your book. I can’t wait for it to be turned into a film. 4 stars!
