Another pick from the neighborhood book club. Like Gone Girl but with the innovation of narrating the story backwards. So you get the protagonist, an unsympathetically drawn woman from a small rural town whose best friend went missing a decade earlier, telling the details of her two weeks return home. Every chapter is “The Day Before.” The narrative twist felt to me like a gimmick suggested by a sales-hungry editor. The story was hard to follow, like that film, Memento? But not as gripping as the movie.
