A brand-new paperback edition of Carol Plum-Ucci's groundbreaking Printz Honor–winning debut novel
Chris Creed grew up as the class freak—the bullies’ punching bag. After he vanished, the weirdness that had once surrounded him began spreading. And it tore the town apart. Sixteen-year-old Torey Adams’s search for answers opens his eyes to the lies, the pain, and the need to blame someone when tragedy strikes, and his once-safe world comes crashing down around him.
Includes an interview with the author and a reader’s guide.
