Even Abe’s mom, Leah, Alvin’s only detective, hasavoided the subject. But now, another girl is missing. Fourteen-year-old Mary Ann Dailey took the bus home fromschool as usual, then simply vanished. Townsfolk comb the dense forests andswampy creeks to no avail. Days later Tiffany Michelle Yates disappears. Abesaw her only hours before, holding an ice cream cone and wearing a pink dress.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“One of the best books I’ve read in a long, long while.” Lisa Jackson, New York Times bestselling author
“A masterful coming-of-age gem.” Deborah Crombie, New York Times bestselling author
“There’s something mesmerizing about Hiebert’s storytelling voice, low-pitched and lightly musical.” New York Times Book Review
“Hiebert’s first novel courts comparison to the classic To Kill a Mockingbird…In Hiebert’s sure hands, psychological insight and restrained lyricism combine to create a coming-of-age tale as devastating as it is indelible.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Gorgeous prose and some thoughtful characterizations, with attention given to theme and setting…Michael Hiebert’s debut delivers…a breathless, will-they-get-there-in-time affair, with a heartbreaking resolution. Hiebert’s skill at character and storytelling should take him a long way.” Mystery Scene
“A trip to the dark side of a town much like Mayberry, filled with that elusive quality of childhood and the aura of safety that often settles, unjustifiably, over rural small towns in the South” Carolyn Haines, 2010 recipient of the Harper Lee Award
“Hiebert’s debut is an atmospheric mystery told in first person by a young boy grappling with changing family dynamics, and tragic events in his small town. Part mystery, part coming-of-age story, this sometimes humorous tale is a delight.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
