THE DISAPPEARANCE OF EMILY H.Author: Barrie SummyRelease Date: May 12, 2015Publisher: Delacote Books For Young Readers

A girl who can see the past tries to save the future in this compelling tween mystery.
A girl is missing. Three girls are lying. One girl can get to the truth.
Emily Huvar vanished without a trace. And the clues are right beneath Raine’s fingertips. Literally. Raine isn’t like other eighth graders. One touch of a glittering sparkle that only Raine can see, and she’s swept into a memory from the past. If she touches enough sparkles, she can piece together what happened to Emily.
When Raine realizes that the cliquey group of girls making her life miserable know more than they’re letting on about Emily’s disappearance, she has to do something. She’ll use her supernatural gift for good . . . to fight evil.
But is it too late to save Emily?

It is dangerous for me to let black licorice into the house. I love it too much and will eat it until I am ill.

Along with black licorice, I am addicted to audio books. And stationery products.

I have successfully bred veiled chameleons. They are surprisingly loveable.

I’ve wanted to adopt a child since I was 10 years old. I eventually got around to it. Highly recommended.

I’ve usually got two books going: one audio, one print

I recently got a FitBit. Watch out world!

I am chatty. Very, very chatty.

I don’t watch enough television.

I wanted to grow up and write a Nancy Drew mystery.

  1. I think I would rather see the past more clearly. I think if I could see the future I would spend all my time trying to change it and miss the present.
