When I found out that she had a new book coming out and I had an opportunity to read it ahead of the publish date, I jumped on it. I read this book in record time. All I can say is, buckle up.    Good Half Gone is about a girl named Iris whose twin sister Piper was abducted right in front of her. After going to the police, no one believed her about what happened. So, she decided to go at it alone and try to find the answers for herself. Iris even went so far as to get a job at a remote island hospital for the criminally insane.    I felt the rollercoaster of emotions while reading this book. Everything from sadness and confusion to frustration and absolute shock. The first big twist comes about halfway through and continues from there. The way Tarryn Fisher writes had me hooked right from the start and had me asking questions throughout the entire book. The story did, at times, go in some random directions that ended up being irrelevant, but I was into it the entire time.   Because I read so many books of this genre, I can at times predict an upcoming event or even the ending. But this one threw me for an absolute loop. I thought I had it figured out, and without any spoilers, I did in a sense. But how the story played out was so farfetched. It took a crazy turn, so I never saw it coming. I’d like to give it more, because it was a good story overall and it did end with a massive twist, but because of how it came together, I give this book a solid 3 stars.     Tropes in Good Half Gone include: dual timelines fake identities mind games plot twists   This was my first Tarryn Fisher read, but I will try another. New York Times Best Sellers include Wrong Family and The Wives. She also co-authored Never Never with Colleen Hoover.
