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. [set star] 'Plum-Ucci knows her audience and provides her readers with enough twists, turns, and suspense to keep them absorbed.'- School Library Journal (starred) 'A complex, credible look at alienation, compassion, loyalty, and cruelty.'- The Bulletin
