I'm so desperate to get my hands on this book again because I was so young when I read it. There's this book I read 3 years ago. It was quite long. I remember it took place in the summer and it was from a teenage girls point of view. Her father owned a restaurant. Her mother was shot and died in that same restaurant. One day the girl finds a shoe on the beach Oh yeah this is a maritime story with the foot still inside.
Then she starts hearing a voice. The voice of a middle aged sounding woman. She tries to drown out the voice but no music helps, only radio static so she listens to it very loudly and her dad thinks she's crazy. In their house they have a spare apartment thingy above it. Two boys slightly older than her rent it out for the summer. She falls in love with one of them but her dad doesn't like her interacting with them.
She also likes to sketch things. She mentions at one point that she prefers to sketch unusual things, this is at a time that she is sketching a dead bird, I think. Anyways along the way she becomes close friends with a call girl who is extremely nice and a great person. But she goes to do a job at some address only to find its an abandoned GRODY house and she gets abducted and goes missing for a long time.
The friend she had in the car had fallen asleep and woke up when headlights shined in her eyes and she immediately thought of that song that goes "woop woop thats the sound of the police" because subconsciously she noticed the licence plate which was the same as the name of the artist of that song.
Then the original girl with the dead mom starts dedicating her time to finding her call girl friend. She is going crazy over this and at one point almost drowns. Throughout this whole tine that voice is still talking to her.
