Blonde Hair, Blue Eyes by Karin Slaughter

A missing girl in the news reminds Julia Carroll of herself: nineteen, beautiful, blonde hair, blue eyes.

Julia begins to dig deeper and plans an article for her college paper. She becomes gradually more obsessed with the case, never imagining how close she herself is to danger. 

Julia is a college student who also works in journalism. When Beatrice leaves home one night and does not return home, Julia starts to do her own profiling of missing people, characteristics, and locations. Julia researches and finds that Beatrice had blonde hair and blue eyes just like Julia. Julia decides to write an article with her information to warn others. But what happens when you do not follow your own advice? Is Julia next?

If you are buying this book beware it is a real short story. There is only 76 pages total to read. The book draws you in and gets you to thinking about all these things and connecting the links. But in the end boom, then it is over with no explanation. I felt like a hanging reader when I finished the book.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
