Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

We have to get to her first... Abducted? Runaway? Murder victim? Lily Odilon--local wild child from a middle-of-nowhere town--has vanished after spending the night with her boyfriend, new kid Albert Morales. Suspected in her disappearance, Albert sets out with Lily's prickly younger sister, Olivia, to discover what really happened to Lily--and to keep the promise he made to her late one night. *** Reminiscent of John Green's Paper Towns (2008), this noir thriller hooks readers with realistic dialogue, fully fleshed characters and plenty of twists. Terrific to the last, good page.--KIRKUS REVIEWS

Review:

"When his girlfriend, Lily, disappears in the middle of the night while he is asleep in her bed, 17-year-old Albert has no idea where she's gone or that he will soon become suspected of abducting her. Debut novelist Beitia's story unfolds in three time lines--one that describes past moments in Lily and Albert's relationship; another that unfolds in the hours and days after her disappearance; and a third, in which Albert and Lily's sister, Olivia, are on the lam looking for Lily. Their search is spurred by a mysterious postcard Albert receives from Lily right after she flees, which says that she is waiting for him in 'The Last Good Place.' Each time line fleshes out minute details, plunging readers deep into Albert's experience; the interlacing of the three creates real tension in the first half of the book. Pacing slows in the second half when revelations in the second story line are less climactic since readers already know certain details uncovered in the third thread. But the climax more than makes up for this and caps off a journey well worth taking. Ages 12 — up. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

We've been over this, he says. We have to get to her first.

I know Olivia snaps. I'm keeping company with a suspected murderer and I've probably become an accessory at this point, and a runaway besides. So don't tell me what I need to do. I'm doing it.

Lily Odilon--local wild child from a small Idaho town--has vanished after spending the night with her sometimes boyfriend, new kid Albert Morales. Suspected in her disappearance, Albert sets out to discover what happened to her. Kidnapped? Runaway? Murder victim?

Joining Albert is Lily's prickly younger sister, Olivia. Their distress is mirrored in a fastpaced narrative that jumps through three timelines. Each thread adds a new level to the mystery and reveals clues that paint a startling picture of all three teens. Theirintertwined destinies come to a head in an unconventional climax.
