The Girl On The Platform by Bryony Pearce | Blog Tour Book Review

The Girl On The Platform by Bryony Pearce - 4/5
"I am the girl on the platform.
When new mother Bridget catches her train home from London, she witnesses something terrible: a young girl is taken from the platform, right before her eyes.

No one knows where I am.
But no one is reported missing and with Bridget the only witness, she is written off as an attention seeker. Nobody believes her – not even her own husband.

Can you find me? 
But Bridget knows what she saw, and becomes consumed with finding the little girl. Only she can save the child’s life… but could delving into the mystery cost Bridget her own?"

This is a great thriller!

New mum Bridget has gone back to work with husband Tom staying at home with their daughter Grace. On Bridget's commute home from work, she sees a child being taken from a platform that her train passes.

She reports it to the police but no one else on the train saw it happen. No children have been reported missing either. No one, not even the police, believe her. Bridget then takes it upon herself to find this missing girl but she ends up getting more than she bargained for.

This novel is written very well and Bridget's post-natal depression is a very accurate depiction. You can really sympathise with not only her, but her husband Tom too. He seems like the nicest and most tolerant man!

Bridget becomes a bit obsessed with looking into child abductions and the statistics and you can feel the frustration from her husband for putting it before her family but also from Bridget for not being listened to.

I had sort of guessed what the outcome was whilst reading but I felt like I had to keep reading on to see how it all panned out. It is full of twists and I love that it gives the reader information and clues for us to pick up on. 

A massive thank you to Avon Books for having me on the blog tour. You can see where to find other bloggers reviews in the graphic below.
