Book Summary From Amazon: No one wants me to tell you about the disappearance of Sloane Sullivan.
Not the lawyers or the cops. Not her friends or family. Not even the boy who loved her more than anyone. And most certainly not the United States Marshals Service. You know, the people who run the witness protection program or, as it’s officially called, the Witness Security Program? Yeah, the WITSEC folks definitely don’t want me talking to you.
But I don’t care. I have to tell someone.
If I don’t, you’ll never know how completely wrong things can go. How a single decision can change everything. How, when it really comes down to it, you can’t trust anyone. Not even yourself. You have to understand, so it won’t happen to you next. Because you never know when the person sitting next to you isn’t who they claim to be…and because there are worse things than disappearing.

RATING *4/5 STARS*
When I first heard about The Disappearance of Sloane Sullivan by Gia Cribbs, I was intrigued. I’ve always been a fan of mystery/crime books, especially in the YA genre. I was lucky enough to win this book in a Twitter giveaway, and I am still very grateful for this.
I enjoyed reading The Disappearance of Sloane Sullivan. About halfway through the book, I was hoping the ending would pick up; up until that point, it had been a little slow for me. However, if you find yourself in this same position, stick with it, because the twists and turns at the end blew my mind!
The story focuses on the protagonist, Sloane Sullivan, a girl who has been in the Witness Protection Program for the last six years of her life. The majority of the book follows her as she settles into what is hopefully her last identity. There wasn’t a whole lot of action in the first half of the book, which is what lost me a little. The action is in the last section of the book and is very much worth the wait. I would go into more detail, but I’m not sure how to do that without revealing some of the plot twists. So, I won’t.
There is a romance aspect to the book, which I enjoyed. It ended how I was hoping it would. Along these same lines, there is a love triangle or two, which I know is a popular trope.
The surprise antagonist who is revealed at the end put me in a difficult position. I loved their character, so I had a hard time wrapping my head around the fact they were actually the “bad guy.” Antagonists like this one always me step back and think about the thought processes these individuals have.
Overall, The Disappearance of Sloane Sullivan by Gia Cribbs was a good read. I encourage you to read it, especially if you are a fan of thrillers, mysteries, or crime books. I look forward to hearing what you think about it! Until the next review!
