Rate this:
A tiny pistol, passed from friend to friend at a party on an abandoned pier, suddenly fires, and Casey Carmody falls into the water below. Kurt, Casey's older brother, endures a seemingly endless night at the police station while the coast guard searches for his sister and his friends are questioned, one by one. Who was foolish enough to pull the trigger? Was the gunfire accidental or deliberate? Or was the whole drama one of Casey's practical jokes? And where is Casey--or her body--now? Dark secrets are revealed and petty jealousies rear their ugly heads as each eyewitness comes to the questioning room with his or her own version of "the truth."

Very dark, and not what you'd expect in the end, but fitting and true to the experiences of high school students.

This novel was sad, shocking and very deep. I found that one of the themes in this novel was how people judge one another. How ugly a thing it can be. The author puts us, as readers, in a position to judge, so when the truth is revealed, it makes us feel reflective of ourselves. I think that made the message much more powerful.
At times I found the novel a tiny bit slow, but it was very interesting and kept me reading. I thoroughly enjoyed The Night My Sister Went Missing. Carol Plum-Ucci has not disappointed me!
