"A spellbinding story about friendship and the power of prose." - Kirkus Reviews

Part mystery, part literary puzzle, part life-and-death quest, and chillingly magical, this novel has plenty of suspense for adventure fans and is a treat for readers who love books, words, and clues. Best friends Rosie and Adam find an old book with blank pages that fill with handwriting before their eyes. Something about this magical book has the power to make people vanish, even from memory. When Adam's older sister, Shelby, disappears, they struggle to retain their memories of her as they race against time to bring her back, risking their own lives in the process.
Virginia Zimmerman, a professor of English at Bucknell University, lives in Pennsylvania. This is her first book.

A spellbinding story about friendship and the power of prose." - Kirkus "
