A really interesting mystery about a student who disappears without a trace.

An addictive author. The stories suck you into what it feels like to be on the inside, the outside, and in the middle while slowly understanding everyone in-between. A wonderful read about all of our places and how we are perceived.

"I’m not like you guys anymore. You all…have perfect lives. And when something happens, like a suffering kid turns up missing, it’s like the joke of the century. Because your lives are perfect." (page 33)

"People can love their lies, tell their lies, believe their own lies until hell pays a visit. But this whole story is true. That's the point of it."
