Reviewed by Tiffany Artiaga


I started reading The Forgotten Girl thinking I would be confused by the 2nd or 3rd chapter or that I would already know what was happening long before I was done with the book. I really enjoyed reading this book and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time while reading it; there were times I would have to re-read a whole page because I would read it so fast just to see what would happen next that I didn’t know what I had previously read. I really found the way Mr. Bell had written this book to be an easy read and I didn’t get confused at all.

Although The Forgotten Girl is written in 3rd person I felt like I was “Jason” and I could feel his emotions and see everything he was doing (i.e. driving a car, talking to someone, etc.) I felt sorry for “Jason” and his wife because they were sort of thrown into situations they weren’t prepared for or even expecting. I think had this been a real life couple that the things they went through and experienced would have made their bond stronger. I felt disappointment and anger at “Jason’s” sister and I could imagine how he would have felt.

Mr. Bell did a wonderful job writing this book; I feel like both men and women would enjoy reading this exciting and suspenseful novel. I think the term “suspense” is the perfect description and word for The Forgotten Girl. I think if readers enjoyed Cemetery Girl by David Bell then they will love this book as well. I plan to buy Cemetery Girl and read that one as well and compare the 2 books and see which one I like more. Out of a score of 10 I give The Forgotten Girl a “9.5” and David Bell a “9.”
