CARMEL: BEFORE I READ GIRL LAST SEEN, I ALREADY HAVE MY THEORIES. I WAS LIKE, "PLEASE BE DARK. PLEASE BE CREEPY AND TWISTED." I GOT WHAT I ASKED FOR!


KYLA: THAT ENDING WAS MIND-BLOWING!


CARMEL: I'M NOT GONNA SPOIL ANYTHING. SORRY GUYS, YOU HAVE TO READ THE BOOK TO BE AMAZED BY THE GREATNESS OF THAT ENDING. I AM SPEECHLESS UNTIL NOW. 


KYLA: KADENCE IS
CRAAAZY GOOD! HMMM, EVERY TIME SHE VLOGS, SHE SAYS RUDE THINGS IN A VERY SWEET WAY. 


CARMEL: I LIKE HER THAT WAY!
I WAS ROOTING FOR HER, YOU KNOW! 


KYLA: I LIKE KADENCE, BUT I LIKE LAUREN MORE.
LAUREN IS STRONGER THAN SHE LETS ON. 
 

CARMEL: I GUESS THE GIRLS REALLY ARE GREAT IN THIS BOOK. THEY 
WEREN'T OVERSHADOWED BY OTHER CHARACTERS. THEIR PRESENCE WAS REALLY STRONG THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE BOOK. THE AUTHORS MADE BOTH OF THEM STOOD OUT EQUALLY
 

KYLA: THE AUTHORS DID AN JOB AWESOME WITH THE STORYLINE. IT WAS EASY TO FOLLOW DESPITE THE VARIOUS PERSPECTIVES.
EACH VOICE WAS DISTINCT
 

CARMEL:
KADENCE IS STILL MY FAVORITE EVEN THOUGH SHE WAS MISSING MOST OF TIME. 


KYLA:
THE CRUELEST ACTS ARE THE SILENT ONES. THAT'S MY FAVORITE LINE. 


CARMEL: I KNOW! YOU DON'T REALLY FULLY KNOW SOMEONE. WE ALL HAVE OUR SILENT MOMENTS.
THE CHARACTERS WAS ABLE TO REFLECT FRIENDSHIPS IN DIFFERENT LEVELS. THAT SECRETS CAN KEEP YOU CLOSE AND BREAK YOU APART AT THE SAME TIME. 
 

KYLA: TOTALLY AGREE! FANS OF
PLL WILL DEFINITELY LOVE GIRL LAST SEEN.


CARMEL: OVERALL, GIRL LAST SEEN IS
MY FAVORITE YA MYSTERY SO FAR. IT DEALS WITH FRIENDSHIPS, SECRETS, AND GUYS THAT COME BETWEEN THE TWO GIRLS. 


KYLA: IT'S A MUST-READ MYSTERY NOVEL FOR ME!
GO GET A COPY NOW!


PS. The book features two original songs composed by Kadence and Lauren. You can listen to TWISTED and SING TO  ME CALLIOPE while reading!
