Every night after Ember Pierce falls asleep, she disappears. She can teleport anywhere in the world—London, Paris, her crush’s bedroom—wherever her dreams lead her. Ten minutes is all she gets, and once time’s up, she returns to her bed. It's a secret she’s successfully kept for the last five years. But now someone knows.
A week after her eighteenth birthday, when frustratingly handsome Caden Hawthorne captures her, delivers her to the government, and then disappears before her eyes, Ember realizes two things: One, she is not alone. And two, people like her—teleporters—are being used as weapons.
Dragged off to a remote facility where others like her live, Ember’s forced to pair up with her former captor, Caden, to learn how to survive inside until she can escape. Only Caden’s making escape seem less and less appealing.
But even as Ember falls for the boy who got her into this mess, she knows that she is running out of time. Because the government has plans for those like her, and those plans might just cost Ember her life.
The Vanishing Girl begins when Ember is told she must go with the government officials who show up at her house because of something her parents did. She thinks it's just for two years, little did she know there is a lot of things she doesn't know.
At the facility she's being kept at she must go through training, and meets Caden. Caden has been there for years, and while she doesn't want to make friends she ends up falling for Caden. However, things get more complicated when she starts to learn the truth about the facility and what's really going on.
This book was actually pretty good. I sort of had a creeped out feeling while reading it though, but I think that was mainly because this "government" facility was totally creepy and nuts! People who think like they do frustrate me to no end. But, alas that really has nothing to do with the writing, story line or characters.
The characters were pretty awesome. I loved how smart Ember was and how she was able to figure things out pretty quickly, even if she did make a couple mistakes they weren't too over the top stupid. And Caden, I felt so bad for him, and I was really rooting for him and Ember to get together.
This book of course ends with a cliffhanger, but there is a second book out already, so I will be reading that one as soon as possible.
