The Missing Hours

Claudia Castro is an “it” girl in New York. Beautiful, a talented artist and member of an uber wealthy famous family. As a freshman at NYU she is struggling a bit. Unknowingly filmed in a compromising reality show, losing her confidence and recently dumped by Ben, whom she thought she loved - Claudia disguises her self-doubt with designer clothes and partying. One night her life is changed forever. Claudia wakes up bruised, swollen and in pain. Later, a video is sent that explains it all. The boys are laughing. She remembers nothing of those hours. Broken hearted and afraid Claudia reaches out to a boy in her dorm named Trevor who seems like a well intentioned church going mid westerner. Instead of alerting her family she clings to him for help. The two young adults takes matters into their own hands. Torment and sorrow morph into anger and violence. Blaming herself, Claudia searches for a way to reconstruct that horrible night and ultimately make her predators pay. Author Julia Dahl has done it again. Another page turning suspenseful novel that I could not put down. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
