The Last House Guest by Megan Miranda
Megan Miranda just keeps getting better. While I thoroughly enjoyed All the Missing Girls and The Perfect Stranger, The Last House Guest is my favorite of her recent works.
Avery Greer spends all year in the coastal town, Littleport, Maine. Others come just for the summer, and it is the summers that stand out to Avery, especially the summers she has spent with best friend, Sadie Lohman. The two girls share everything from clothes to secrets. Each year, as the seasonal residents leave the vacation coast, the younger generation stays one last weekend for the party of the summer. This last party is halted when police report that the body of Sadie Lohman has been found. Though the investigation has lead most to believe that Sadie took her own life, Avery is plagued with the idea that something more sinister happened to her dear friend.
Switching between the evening of the night Sadie is found and the following summer, the truths become to unravel. Megan Miranda has a way of playing with time, and The Last House Guests blends the past and present together with revelations that keep a reading turning pages. Whether an old fan of Miranda or new to her style, this comes highly recommended for those that love a good plot twist.
