#BookReview: Losing Brave by Bailee Madison Stefne Miller

About the Book:

From award-winning actress Bailee Madison and Reader’s Choice Award Finalist Stefne Miller, comes Losing Brave. More than a year has passed since seventeen-year-old Payton Brave’s twin sister went missing; and Payton, in her desperate attempt to hold on to what’s left of Dylan’s memory, is starting to crack.

Lost in the mystery and turmoil of her sister’s disappearance, Payton must overcome the aftermath of being the one left behind. She’s unable to remember even the smallest piece of what happened the day Dylan vanished. When sudden and reckless outbursts throw her from the graces of popularity to the outskirts of high school society, her new status attracts a crowd of friends she never anticipated—including a troubling romance with her sister’s boyfriend, Cole.

New clues unearth about the circumstances of her disappearance when another missing girl’s body is recovered from a nearby lake, the victim’s features eerily similar to Dylan’s. The more Payton pries open the clenches of her blocked memories, yielding to her need to know what happened, the further down the path of danger she goes. The darkness around her sister’s disappearance grows and the truth becomes more and more unbearable. And what she finds might just cost her her life.

Notes and Opinions: I really wish that this one started like it ended. The start of this one almost made me want to DNF it but I held on and I am super glad that I did because the ending of it was really good.  The middle was a little better than the begining but the start of it for me was just a mess. For me the first 40% of this one was truly DNF worthly, the next 20% was ok, and then the last 30% was amazing!!  The characters at that point shined through and I couldn't out it down. I really wished that the other 60% of this one would have been as good. That makes this one a take it or leave it title. I think that some will most likely love this title while others wont.  

Go Into This One Knowing: Boring for 40%, Great for 30% and 20% is kind meh.
