A close-knit street, the clink of glass on glass, summer heat. Two girls on the brink of adolescence, throwing cartwheels on the grass. Two girls who tell each other everything. Until one shimmering afternoon, one of them disappears.
Lizzie is left with her dread and her loss, and with a fear that won’t let her be. Had Evie tried to give her a hint of what was coming, a clue that she failed to follow?
Caught between her imaginary guilt, her sense of betrayal, her own powerful need, and the needs of the adults around her, Lizzie’s voice is as unforgettable as her story is arresting. This is no ordinary tale of innocence lost . . .
Lizzie and Evie are two teenage girls that are best of friends, they literally share everything with each other until one day there is only one of them. That day changes for Lizzie considerably. Lizzie then sets out on a journey to get Evie home, some parts are quite disturbing as to how far she will go to get her best friend back but there is a sense that it is engaging enough to want to read on. What Lizzie finds out about Evie and her home life, she wonders if she really knew her at all. It is a powerful story that is well written.
