Judith Tremayne is missing. She hasn't been online, and no one has heard from her. She simply seems to have vanished—until Abbie Kerr, a school nobody, receives a message: “I want to come home.”

Suddenly everyone knows Abbie's name. The mean girls and the misfits alike are obsessed with Jude's disappearance. Abbie finds herself at the center of a whirlwind of rumors, secrets, and lies. Why would popular, fun Jude be messaging the loner loser Abbie? Why would Jude disappear? Can Abbie bring her home?

Award-winning author Cathy MacPhail authentically captures the voice and lives of teens—desperate to be seen, bombarded with online harassment, yet obsessed with living their lives on social media.

This tense thriller is packed with MacPhail's trademark sharp dialogue and a series of sensational twists.

(Ages 12 to 15 years)
