Almost 4.5 stars....I think this book is unique among recent YA titles I've read because it incorporates drawings and it has some great suspense thrown in. Ellie's sister Nina disappeared one day two years ago. It wasn't investigated and just assumed that she ran away, especially since she was 18 at the time. But Ellie can't believe that her sister would just abandon her and her mom. And she definitely doesn't think she is dead either, or at least chooses not to go there. After two years Ellie's best friend is getting tired of Ellie not being able to let go of her sister's absence, but then they find one of Nina's drawings in some random box of thrift store donations. From there Ellie goes on a quest to track Nina down, no matter who she leaves behind and what she has to go through. I won't go any further because there are some great twists and turns, but some parts of the story are not appropriate for younger teens. A great read and I will certainly be watching for more from this author.
