When Lucy’s mentally disabled friend Cheri goes missing, Lucy’s upset but when no trace of Cheri is ever found everyone thinks that she ran away. About a year later, Cheri’s dismembered body is discovered near a creek outside of town. No one knows where Cheri spent the last year of her life or how she died. Cheri’s disappearance and death are intertwined with the story of Lucy’s mother’s disappearance 18 years earlier. Set deep in the Ozark Mountains, everything is not as it appears and as Lucy begins to unravel the secrets and lies of this dangerous mystery, her life changes forever.    (Booktalk by Pennsylvania Young Reader’s Choice Award Committee)
