Narrator Christina Moore delivers Jennifer McMahon's haunting novel of innocence lost. THE ISLAND OF LOST GIRLS is at once sinister and believable, a coming-of-age story that involves two missing children and dark secrets. Ronda Farr is connected to both children. When the recent college graduate witnesses an abduction, she reconnects to a mystery in her past and begins to seek answers. Treasured memories of her childhood—her friend Lizzy and Lizzy’s brother; a performance of PETER PAN; their father, who entertains in a bunny costume—begin to take on dark undertones. The story slowly unfolds and becomes impossible to put down. Christina Moore carries the character and scene shifts without jarring artifices of accent or impersonation to distract the listener from this excellent, if dark, story.
