Thirteen-year-old Lizzie and her neighbor, Evie, are inseparable. When Evie disappears, everyone turns to Lizzie for answers. Lizzie takes up her own pursuit of the truth, uncovering a host of secrets that makes her wonder if she knew her best friend at all.
"While lyrically written, this is often hard to read. Nobody is innocent in an Abbott novel, but the characters and their complex, murky motivations are gripping. This intense novel will stay with you."
