I never had a sister but three brothers. My whole life I have wondered what a relationship with someone who will or did share the same experiences with you. Reading “Vanishing Girls” by Lauren Oliver it gave me a brief insight as to what having a sister, particularly a close one, would be like.
The book starts with two sisters: the younger one Dara and the elder by a year, Nicole. They two are inseparable, willingly best friends, until gradually a boy both Dara and Nicole love, Parker, comes between them; and then something worse.
The sisters are involved in a car crash leaving Nicole unscathed, but Dara with serious injuries. Neither of them can recollect the accident but it is clear that it wasn’t just a normal car accident.
As time progresses and Nicole and Dara live as though the other doesn’t exist, a young girl in the community goes missing. This only adds to the strangeness of the book as the car accident and the disappearance seem to be related. Nicole becomes obsessive with the case and as see inches closer and closer to the truth and further and further away from Dara, the truth starts to unravel and both sisters become in the line of danger. The mystery starts to become uncovered and unfortunate realities of their community starts to unravel.
Even though parts of the book can be considered cheesy, “Vanishing Girls” by Lauren Oliver is a very fast and interesting read. There is an entertaining plot line and a brilliant plot twist at the end that leaves you pondering for days. I recommend this book for anyone trying to get back into reading with a good story, or simply someone who likes fast-paced mysteries; there will be a lot you won’t be expecting.

As we start approaching fast into summer many people will be looking for a good show to binge watch on those “boring” summer days. White Collar is a high intensity crime show that has an equally intense secondary plot line and illustrates a relationship by a convicted felon and an FBI agent.
The show White Collar produced by USA network begins with the main character, Neal Caffrey (portrayed by Matt Bomer) an extremely charming, renounced art thief, being imprisoned by the secondary main character, FBI agent Peter Burke, (played by Tim DeKay). In exchange for restricted freedom agent Burke contracts Caffrey in solving high profile embezzlement and laundering scandals.
Caffrey, a notorious criminal, is insanely smart and is a key player in every investigation him and Burke are assigned to. This doesn’t go without Caffrey having a second agenda during his time outside of jail. Someone inside the FBI has his beloved girlfriend, Kate, held hostage and even though he is forbidden to investigate her case, Caffrey discreetly searches for Kate and breaks many agreement in his contract and inches closer and closer back to prison as he risks everything.
The show White Collar is very entertaining and is a good show to tease your mind as there are endless plot twist. Caffrey and Burke are an amazing team that serve as character foils throughout the show and give a good balance to the show. The ultimate dilemma is will Caffrey stay or will he abandon Burke and leave for a life on the run with Kate?
