    "Lexi will do anything to help Jane, to make up for the fact that she didn?t?couldn?t?save Jane?s life, and to keep this beautiful ghost of a girl by her side for as long as possible." Me reading the synopsis: yep, yep, sounds good, yep, I'm intereste - WAIT A SECOND. IS T...

    Last year I read Berquist's debut novel, Devils Unto Dust, and ended up putting it on my favourites 2018 shelf. Missing, Presumed Dead is another complete hit for me. As was the case in Devils Unto Dust, Berquist puts her main character Lexi front and centre, her complicated interperso...

    i will personally beat down every f/f author's door if they continue this underdeveloped sapphic romance trend where they don't get together until the last fucking page ...

    I adored Berquist's debut novel last year and was so excited to see that she was, once again, coming out with something completely new and different. It didn't take me long to pick it up and dig right in. I loved the whole unique concept of this book. With a blend of the everyday wi...

    Now I have feelings, book, how dare you. 4.5 stars. I love ghost stories. It's not so much about wanting to believe in the paranormal or wanting to talk about what is after death; that's not what draws me in. It's that haunting stories are stories about isolation. There's somethi...

    This story was immediately engaging with a main character whose horrible gift isolates her and leaves her deeply unhappy and lonely. A chance encounter with a young woman at the club where she works leaves Lexi drowning in guilt, as she saw the other woman murdered brutally. When Jane...

    Why aren't more people reading this ?!!! I really liked a premise and as a fan of the TV shows ghost whisperer and medium I was intrigued but somehow on the fence cause I didn't want to read the same old story. Luckily that didn't happen first of all Lexi's power has more to it t...

    Listen, this book is everything you could want from a gritty queer urban fantasy. Murder! Ghosts! Murdered gay ghosts who don't fall into the "bury your gays" trope because, you know ... they're not buried! Missing, Presumed Deadisn't my usual cup of tea, butEmma Berquist's debut,?...

    Missing, Presumed Dead was a very unique story. It's almost hard to compare it to something else, I think that it's probably going to appeal most to the Buffy and Supernatural crowd. Basically we have a queer paranormal/mystery that takes place in our everyday world. This was my in...

    okay this was AMAZING and also my 300th read in 2019 YAY ...

    this was so good omg literally so much love to this book (Lexi is such an icon and angry at the world but I love her) it's also f/f sooo ...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight . This was a pretty fun book! I was into it from start to finish, as it was quite thrilling! Let us talk about what I enjoyed! ?Lexi was a suprisingly compelling main...

    (Disclaimer: I received this book from Edelweiss. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.) I don't feel like enough people are excited about Missing, Presumed Dead. Not only does it star a girl who can see your death with a touch, but it's a story about human c...

    **2.5 stars** *I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via Edelweiss for a free and honest review. All thoughts are my own* I was excited for this book since I love her debut novel but this was very disappointing. The MC feels very one dimensional and unlikeable. The myster...

    Not sure if it's YA, but it's not bad however you'll call it. Lexi can not only see the dead but also when people will die the moment they touch them. And that's why she avoids all kinds of contact. Having dropped out of school, she works for the same man her grandfather used to, pr...

    Why aren't more people reading this ?!!! I really liked a premise and as a fan of the TV shows ghost whisperer and medium I was intrigued but somehow on the fence cause I didn't want to read the same old story. Luckily that didn't happen first of all Lexi's power has more to it t...

    Listen, this book is everything you could want from a gritty queer urban fantasy. Murder! Ghosts! Murdered gay ghosts who don't fall into the "bury your gays" trope because, you know ... they're not buried! Missing, Presumed Deadisn't my usual cup of tea, butEmma Berquist's debut,?...

    Missing, Presumed Dead was a very unique story. It's almost hard to compare it to something else, I think that it's probably going to appeal most to the Buffy and Supernatural crowd. Basically we have a queer paranormal/mystery that takes place in our everyday world. This was my in...

    okay this was AMAZING and also my 300th read in 2019 YAY ...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight . This was a pretty fun book! I was into it from start to finish, as it was quite thrilling! Let us talk about what I enjoyed! ?Lexi was a suprisingly compelling main...

    *Source* Publisher *Genre* Young Adult, Thriller, Suspense *Rating* 3.5 *Thoughts* Missing, Presumed Dead is the follow-up to author Emma Berquist's Devil Upon Dust. One could call this book a murder mystery with a paranormal twist. Protagonist Alexandra "Lexi" Ivanovich can se...

    (Disclaimer: I received this book from Edelweiss. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.) I don't feel like enough people are excited about Missing, Presumed Dead. Not only does it star a girl who can see your death with a touch, but it's a story about human c...

    **2.5 stars** *I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via Edelweiss for a free and honest review. All thoughts are my own* I was excited for this book since I love her debut novel but this was very disappointing. The MC feels very one dimensional and unlikeable. The myster...

    4 stars. ?Even without turning around, I can sense Jane behind me, feel the gravitational pull of her. I can?t escape it; she?s like my compass, like a lodestone. I always know where Jane is.? Missing, Presumed Dead follows Lexi, who, with just a touch, can sense how and ...

    Not sure if it's YA, but it's not bad however you'll call it. Lexi can not only see the dead but also when people will die the moment they touch them. And that's why she avoids all kinds of contact. Having dropped out of school, she works for the same man her grandfather used to, pr...

    There are some kinds of books that affect you differently. I feel sad too easily; it?s why I avoid heavy hitting books. This book started out heavy. Heavy in a way that felt too real and too raw. It has a character that?s... angry and unhappy and unable to do anything about. Sh...

    I received an eARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you kindly to Greenwillow Books for my review copy. With a touch, Lexi can see someone?s death and has the ability to commune with the dead. Some say it?s a gift, but Lexi sees it as a curse ? one th...

    Here's a fun dilemma: What rating do you give a book that contains literally everything you love--a complex bisexual female protagonist, a gritty paranormal mystery, exploration of mental health, ghost girls, f/f romance--and executes most of them very well, but then you come across...

    Ignore the lackluster title and the complete dud of a cover. This book is a lot better than either give it credit for. It's an urban fantasy that follows a young woman burdened by her power as she looks for a murderer while accompanied by the ghost of the victim. People with magical...

    A copy of this novel was provided by HarperCollins for review via Edelweiss. There are five things you should know about Missing, Presumed Dead and here they are: 1) It tries a little too hard In all honesty I almost DNFd Missing, Presumed Dead because of this aspect. I felt l...

    Something about people being able to talk to the dead and magic just gets me excited to read a book. Apparently all in one day too. Started it this morning, finished by afternoon. Loved it!! ...

    Normally, I don?t read horror books. This one was intriguing, and I kept trying to guess who the criminal was. ...

    The synopsis for this book really grabbed my attention, it sounded dark and exciting so I couldn?t wait to get started! Lexi?s life completely fascinated me, her gift of visualising someone?s death if they touched her was clearly, and understandably, a source of discomfort for...

    I was so intrigued by the premise of this book, because even though it seemed like your typical mystery/thriller, it had that paranormal element that I thought would be pretty interesting to add to this type of novel, and I was so right because even though Missing Presumed Dead wasn?...

    3.75/5 Thank you Edelweiss, Greenwillow books and Emma Berquist for my ARC in exchange for an honest review. Shoulders bump mine, and I grit my teeth as deaths wash over me in a sticky gray wave. I only get flashes, but it's enough; all these plump, dimpled cheeks, thick hair, a...

    There's something to be done about a book that starts well enough, bores you to tears halfway through, then ends horribly with a serial killer that NO ONE thought about suspecting because he wasn't even a memorable character. Also, how depressing is the author's idea of life after d...

    (Disclaimer: I received this book from Edelweiss. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.) I don't feel like enough people are excited about Missing, Presumed Dead. Not only does it star a girl who can see your death with a touch, but it's a story about human c...

    Not sure if it's YA, but it's not bad however you'll call it. Lexi can not only see the dead but also when people will die the moment they touch them. And that's why she avoids all kinds of contact. Having dropped out of school, she works for the same man her grandfather used to, pr...

    I adored Berquist's debut novel last year and was so excited to see that she was, once again, coming out with something completely new and different. It didn't take me long to pick it up and dig right in. I loved the whole unique concept of this book. With a blend of the everyday wi...

    Now I have feelings, book, how dare you. 4.5 stars. I love ghost stories. It's not so much about wanting to believe in the paranormal or wanting to talk about what is after death; that's not what draws me in. It's that haunting stories are stories about isolation. There's somethi...

    This story was immediately engaging with a main character whose horrible gift isolates her and leaves her deeply unhappy and lonely. A chance encounter with a young woman at the club where she works leaves Lexi drowning in guilt, as she saw the other woman murdered brutally. When Jane...

    Missing, Presumed Dead was a very unique story. It's almost hard to compare it to something else, I think that it's probably going to appeal most to the Buffy and Supernatural crowd. Basically we have a queer paranormal/mystery that takes place in our everyday world. This was my in...

    Last year I read Berquist's debut novel, Devils Unto Dust, and ended up putting it on my favourites 2018 shelf. Missing, Presumed Dead is another complete hit for me. As was the case in Devils Unto Dust, Berquist puts her main character Lexi front and centre, her complicated interperso...

    I adored Berquist's debut novel last year and was so excited to see that she was, once again, coming out with something completely new and different. It didn't take me long to pick it up and dig right in. I loved the whole unique concept of this book. With a blend of the everyday wi...

    Now I have feelings, book, how dare you. 4.5 stars. I love ghost stories. It's not so much about wanting to believe in the paranormal or wanting to talk about what is after death; that's not what draws me in. It's that haunting stories are stories about isolation. There's somethi...

    This story was immediately engaging with a main character whose horrible gift isolates her and leaves her deeply unhappy and lonely. A chance encounter with a young woman at the club where she works leaves Lexi drowning in guilt, as she saw the other woman murdered brutally. When Jane...

    *Source* Publisher *Genre* Young Adult, Thriller, Suspense *Rating* 3.5 *Thoughts* Missing, Presumed Dead is the follow-up to author Emma Berquist's Devil Upon Dust. One could call this book a murder mystery with a paranormal twist. Protagonist Alexandra "Lexi" Ivanovich can se...

    (Disclaimer: I received this book from Edelweiss. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.) I don't feel like enough people are excited about Missing, Presumed Dead. Not only does it star a girl who can see your death with a touch, but it's a story about human c...

    **2.5 stars** *I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via Edelweiss for a free and honest review. All thoughts are my own* I was excited for this book since I love her debut novel but this was very disappointing. The MC feels very one dimensional and unlikeable. The myster...

    4 stars. ?Even without turning around, I can sense Jane behind me, feel the gravitational pull of her. I can?t escape it; she?s like my compass, like a lodestone. I always know where Jane is.? Missing, Presumed Dead follows Lexi, who, with just a touch, can sense how and ...

    Not sure if it's YA, but it's not bad however you'll call it. Lexi can not only see the dead but also when people will die the moment they touch them. And that's why she avoids all kinds of contact. Having dropped out of school, she works for the same man her grandfather used to, pr...

    There are some kinds of books that affect you differently. I feel sad too easily; it?s why I avoid heavy hitting books. This book started out heavy. Heavy in a way that felt too real and too raw. It has a character that?s... angry and unhappy and unable to do anything about. Sh...

    I received an eARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you kindly to Greenwillow Books for my review copy. With a touch, Lexi can see someone?s death and has the ability to commune with the dead. Some say it?s a gift, but Lexi sees it as a curse ? one th...

    Here's a fun dilemma: What rating do you give a book that contains literally everything you love--a complex bisexual female protagonist, a gritty paranormal mystery, exploration of mental health, ghost girls, f/f romance--and executes most of them very well, but then you come across...
