Before She Was Found is a timely and gripping thriller about friendship and betrayal, about the power of social pressure and the price of needing to fit in. It is about the great lengths a parent will go to protect their child and keep them safe—even if that means burying the truth, no matter the cost.

Actual Rating: 5 stars
This is one of the best thrillers I have read in a long time! I am so glad that I picked it up on a whim and started reading it because once I started I couldn't stop! The only bad thing is that this book doesn't release until April 2019 so readers will have to wait to read it. But I promise you, once you do, you are going to love it! This book is one thrilling ride from start to finish. In vain of Slenderman and The Chalk man, this book depicts three young girls and the urban legend of Joseph Wither. Joseph Wither is a fictional legend who is said to keep the girls he loves and dispose of the others. While he was once real in the town of Pitch he is now the ghost of peoples nightmares. So what happens when this legend is unleashed? Well, you will have to read to find out!
I have always been drawn to fictional tales about urban legends and of course the Slenderman legend has found it's way into the thoughts of many books and people in the past two years. Having read a few books that depict this type of legend I have been really disappointed though. I always want to hear from the victims and the people who are dealing with the aftermath of his presence. Thankfully, this book gave me everything I wanted! Told in dual point of views, text messages, and journal entries readers will finally get the whole story! Heather Gudenkauf SLAYED it. I think the twist at the end was original as well and something that not many people will figure out!
With that, I highly recommend this book when it comes out. I think many readers of mysteries, thrillers, and suspense are going to love it!
