The sister is portrayed as being a bit wild, sneaking out at night, etc. The younger sister, Ellie, finds a clue that happens to be a drawing and sets off to find her in what I thought would be a suspenseful and mysterious search. Unfortunately, this story just never got off the ground. The rest of the plot was thin, contrived, and unrealistic as it evolved.
The character of Ellie was the only one that was somewhat developed; the supporting cast was totally stereotypical -- from the absent, completely clueless mother to the gay boss at the coffee shop. The cross country trek Ellie takes with a stranger, a "hot guy" named Sean, was intrinsically unbelievable and relied on some assumptions about the ability of teenagers to rent hotel rooms at their age and have access to that kind of time away from home, school, jobs and also the amount of money needed.
I don't mind a stretch of credulity in a teen novel now and again, but this was way too much from start to finish. The story fell apart for me as Sean and Ellie start on their harebrained journey in his car, meeting up with random people following a band - the clues or whatever these drawings are just made no sense. There was never any mention of the family enlisting detectives or police to look for this missing girl, the mother's lack of interest in the whereabouts of her daughter, the denouement and revelation of the reason for the disappearance and the lack of contact - well it just didn't work.
I had to force myself to finish. There was no suspense in the book. Ellie was immature with very poor judgment, her friendship with Amanda didn't feel realistic, and the way the book ended all added up to a forgettable read by a debut author. I had read some good reviews about this one, and since I had a copy of it on my shelf and was looking for a light read, I thought this was perfect!

Wherever Nina Lies was a fun light read, but it didn't hook my interest much. I probably was looking at it through grown-up lens, but no matter how much I willingly suspended my belief, there was a lot that seemed improbable to me. I'm sure that my teen-self would have enjoyed this. There are some classic teen-favored elements without being stereotypical in here - a strong teen girl character, some nice romance, an adventure road trip, a mystery to spur the storyline, and this handsome mysterious guy.
I did like the way the mystery played out and I liked the characters in it, especially the guy who works with Ellie at the coffee shop. But it felt a little too sappy for me.
I loved this book until about half way through. The premise was very intriguing. I thought this would be a mystery, a who-done-it. But it was more of a psychological suspense-filled novel. I can't tell you why I really didn't like the book without giving away the big twist, but I can tell you some of the other reasons. Ellie gets a clue to go to a city, they go there, and out of all of the millions of pla I loved this book until about half way through.
Ellie gets a clue to go to a city, they go there, and out of all of the millions of places in the city she just happens to stumble onto a clue. This cycle repeats itself several times. There is no explanation given for how easily she finds these clues. Not to mention how she just so happens to stumble upon various people who knew her sister. There's no sleuthing here at all.
And the biggest disappointment is one I can't talk about without ruining the story for everyone. But just take my word for it.

But as Ellie and Sean head across the country, Ellie can't help but wonder why Sean is so devoted. A great story, a little hard to get into, but well-told and exciting. The end is a little predictable but not entirely. Wherever Nina Lies is a novel about a girl named Ellie who is trying to find her sister, Nina.

Along the way, Ellie uncovers shocking truths about her sister as well as Sean, whom she is falling in love with as their journey progresses. This novel was okay. I thought the plot was good, but the content seemed a bit rushed. I thought i Wherever Nina Lies is a novel about a girl named Ellie who is trying to find her sister, Nina. I thought it could have been more descriptive. I expected something more. The cover is really nice, however!
I picked this book up because it had my name in the title and was YA. The first third was okay, the second third became boring so I skimmed, but the last third was pretty good.
I didn't see several of the plot twists coming, and it ended up being more mature than I thought it would be. Interesting but just over okay. This was one of those books that had all the potential to be amazing, but it just fell short. I can overlook the unrealistic plot and suspend belief, but it was so horribly written that I ended up skimming the majority of it.
Pero los dibujos en el libro me gustaron. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Good Book, had a weird twist in the middle i didn't expect I feel like I should have liked this more than I did; the ending just seemed too cleverly deus ex machina for me. Girl's older sister has been missing for 2 years. This is the story of her mission to find out what happened. It wasn't the best.
