Cover Story: I like it. I am not sure why but it looks like you are about to enter something…..
Haley McWaid is a good girl. She doesn’t cause her parents any trouble, gets good grades, is involved in sports, and has surrounded herself with good quality friendships. So when one day she just disappears from her home it makes no sense. Her parents can not believe she would run away…

I think I would have had better feel for this particular read if I had went with the book instead of the audio. That way I could back track (as I tend to do) to sort through the characters and the who said what’s…
