The Van Apfel Girls Are Gone Reviews

  • Michelle

I could hear the birds chirping and the insects buzzing and I almost felt as if I was walking hand in hand with Tikka as she told me the story about the Van Apfel girls. ...

    look who came all the way from australia and braved a biblical downpour just to sign books for our book club! They had six femurs, ninety-nine vertebrae, three skulls and thirty fingernails.

    To me, this darkly themed story had a slight literary fiction feel, and I don’t love that genre. In saying that, I was okay with it. Set in the early 1990’s, this tale of three sisters who simply go missing on the night of the school concert, leaves the reader with a lot of pondering to do...
