Nick and Dara are sisters and they've always been close. Things have gotten a bit more difficult as they grow older. They are in a car accident where Nick is driving and Dara is injured, and after that things aren't the same. That's really all I'm going to say about the plot.
The storytelling is great. The characters are well defined and sympathetic. The book's pace, especially the second half, is excellent. The teens are dealing with some realistic problems. I just had a feeling all through the book about the ending, and I was disappointed that I was correct.
I'm sure Vanishing Girls will get lots of rave reviews, and my high school girls will love it. I'm just too jaded, I guess. I'm always on the look out for the twists.
