The Stranger Game
The Stranger Game is a dark, suspenseful, and twisty young adult novel—perfect for fans of Lauren Oliver and E. Lockhart—about fifteen-year-old Nico Walker, whose sister returns home after a four-year disappearance. 
When Nico Walker's older sister mysteriously disappears, her parents, family, and friends are devastated. But Nico can never admit what she herself feels: relief at finally being free of Sarah's daily cruelties.
Then the best and worst thing happens: four years later, after dozens of false leads, Sarah is found.
But this girl is much changed from the one Nico knew. She's thin and drawn, where Sarah had been golden and athletic; timid and unsure, instead of brash and competitive; and strangest of all, sweet and kind, when she had once been mean and abusive. Sarah's retrograde amnesia has caused her to forget almost everything about her life, from small things like the plots of her favorite books and her tennis game to the more critical—where she's been the last four years and what happened at the park on the fateful day she vanished. Despite the happy ending, the dark details of that day continue to haunt Nico, and it becomes clear that more than one person knows the true story of what happened to Sarah. . . . 

You guys know me, I ADORE a good mystery/thriller. I seriously can't resist. So I literally pounced on this book 5 months and 20 days before it was published. FIVE MONTHS you guys!!! Ain't no shame in my game!



But in all seriousness, this book is amazeballs!!! You start out really feeling sorry for the main character, Nico. Her sister has been missing for 4 years and it completely changed her life! Her parents hover over her, constantly worrying that they are making the best decisions. And then there's the whole trying to live up to your perfect sister thing... ew!

And then her sister Sarah, comes back and the everything that you thought you knew is GONE. OUT the window people, OUT. THE. WINDOW!


I read this entire book in about 12 hours, I couldn't put it down and took it EVERYWHERE with me! There were so many moments that shocked me, and I just can't say enough about how epic this book is!

This book is like Lisa McMann's Dead to You meets Pretty Little Liars. Seriously!!! I am so stoked to see what else Cylin Busby has up her sleeve in the future!
