Ellie Frias disappeared long before she vanished.
Tormented throughout middle school, Ellie begins her freshman year with a new look: she doesn't need to be popular; she just needs to blend in with the wallpaper.
But when the unthinkable happens, Ellie finds herself trapped after a brutal assault. She wasn't the first victim, and now she watches it happen again and again. She tries to hold on to her happier memories in order to get past the cold days, waiting for someone to find her.
The problem is, no one searches for a girl they never noticed in the first place.
TE Carter's stirring and visceral debut not only discusses and dismantles rape culture, but it also reminds us what it is to be human.
Before I start talking about this book I'm going to warn you that this book does contain triggers for rape, murder, and violence.This book was a hard read. It's heartbreaking, unapologetically honest and at the same time it is beautiful. This is a book that you need to read. This book makes you feel so many emotions. I loved the writing style. This book was just so beautifully written. The author handled tough topics so well. I really think you should read this book, just keep in mind that this book will haunt you.
