Clever narrative interwoven with psychological mystery in Dear Amy by Helen Callaghan

Book Reviews, Book Thoughts, Uncategorized


A girl has gone missing. She’s a schoolgirl, and seems to have been picked up by a man. There have been cases like this before. Margot, a school teacher who moonlights by writing an advice column for the local paper, starts receiving letters from Bethan Avery, the girl it all happened to first, years ago. She has to battle suspicion and mystery and question everything that appears in front of her including her own self to try to help both Bethan and the girl in real danger and currently kidnapped.

I wasn’t sure what this book would be like. It was intense, and thrilling, and interesting. It delved into situations that really aren’t comfortable reading, but was psychologically intriguing. I was kept interested and guessing constantly; and though I did guess the solution before the end I wasn’t sure and did really want to find out.
