The Vanishing Girl was a good read, but the romance left a bit to be desired. As much as I love a cocky love interest that only has eyes for the main character, his movements were a little too predictable. Caden was sweet but there were quite a few moments that just made me go "come on, seriously?". Of course, he was constantly trying to catch Ember naked (which happened quite a bit I might add), and there were some not-so-sublte hints that he loved her.
Romance aside, however, The Vanishing Girl had a good mystery about it. I was constantly trying to figure out exactly what was going on when Ember kept teleporting to strange/dangerous areas with only a sentence to instruct her what to do, and it wasn't the government sending her there. Thalassa did a good job keeping everything a secret through the novel!
Other than that I didn't feel one way or the other about the book. It featured a good heroine that didn't take anything lying down, and had a nice "evil government" feel about it.
