About the book

A baby goes missing. But does her mother want her back?

When Estelle’s baby daughter is taken from her cot, she doesn’t report her missing. Days later, Estelle is found in a wrecked car, with a wound to her head and no memory.

Estelle knows she holds the key to what happened that night – but what she doesn’t know is whether she was responsible…

My thoughts on the book

I often stay clear of books involving missing children as it tends to make me feel so uneasy, having a little girl myself, but it was the tagline of this particular one that captured my interest straight away.

I am glad, I gave this book a chance, because it was incredible! The plot is expertly planned and woven and keeps the reader guessing throughout. Just when I thought I knew how this story would pan out, Alexandra Burt threw a curve-ball my way. 

I really felt for Estelle the whole way through – I can’t even begin to imagine how tragic and heart-breaking it must be to lose your memory and not to know whether you are responsible for your baby’s disappearance. 

The reader gets to unravel the story alongside Estelle and the information we learn throughout is sometimes more than unnerving. I finished this book in a very short time – it’s such a page-turner.

Little Girl Gone is thrilling, spine-chilling and utterly addictive. I cannot wait to read more by this author.

Thank you to the publisher for sending me an ARC of this book in return for my honest review.
