Description

The sequel to Ripley Jones's unforgettable YA thriller Missing Clarissa, The Other Lola is about what happens when the people you love the most are the people you can trust the least.

In the months after Cam and Blair broke their small hometown’s legendary missing-girl story and catapulted to accidental fame, they vowed never to do it again. No more mysteries, no more podcasts, and no more sticking their heads where they don’t belong.

Until Mattie Brosillard, a freshman at their high school, shows up on their doorstep, begging Cam and Blair for help. Mattie's sister Lola disappeared mysteriously five years ago. No trace of her was ever found. Now, she's back--but Mattie is convinced the girl who returned is an impostor. Nobody believes Mattie's wild story--not Mattie's brother, not Mattie's mother, and not even Cam and Blair. But something is definitely wrong in the Brosillard family. And Blair has her own reasons for wanting to know what really happened to Lola while she was gone.

With Cam and Blair still struggling with the aftermath of their first mystery—and with new secrets swirling between them—the stakes are higher than ever in this can’t-miss sequel to Missing Clarissa.

The Other Lola by Ripley Jones is a riveting tale that wastes no time in delivering its impact. This quick, sharp, and straight-to-the-jugular narrative captivated me from start to finish.

I had enjoyed Missing Clarissa a lot and was so glad that a sequel was coming out. This book worked well overall and had everything that I hoped for. The characters were what I was looking for and it was written perfectly for this thriller. Ripley Jones does it again in this novel and I’m looking forward to more.

I read <i>Missing Clarissa</i> last week and RAN to see if I could get an ARC of this one. I was delighted to find it was just as good as the first, in my opinion. It subverts so much of what you expect it to do--Blair and Cam aren't investigating a murder, there's no podcast element, some character dyanmics are reversed, and I just found that so smart and delightful. But it still keeps all the things that made the first one so refreshing! These characters feel vivid and real and funny despite the the danger they find themselves in at times, and it was so heartwarming to see their little found family grow with new characters in this book. I inhaled this in less than 24 hours, and if Ripley Jones kept writing these forever, I would keep picking them up. I've already recommended this series to multiple teens at my library, and glad the sequel will live up to the hype I'm building for them.

My heart is still pounding

What just happened ? I’m an adult, how did a YA book shake me to my core ? Well, when you are Ripley Jones, you know how to skillfully craft a book that will consume and frighten even the coldest of folks.

I know I know. This is crazy . I can read Stephen King and not even bat an eye but I tell ya, this one is good, real good .

It might have been the whole legendary missing girl stories or maybe it was the secrets and twists that just kept on coming .

I think you should find out for yourself …
