A gripping mystery about the gravitational force between mothers and daughters. Grace Carter’s mother — the celebrity news anchor GG Carter — is everything Grace is not. GG is a star, with a flawless wardrobe and a following of thousands, while Grace — an aspiring astrophysicist — is into stars of another kind. She and her mother have always been in different orbits. Then one day GG is just … gone. While the authorities unravel the mystery behind GG’s disappearance, Grace grows closer to her high school’s golden boy, Mylo, who has faced a black hole of his own. She also uncovers some secrets from her mother’s long-lost past. The more Grace learns, the more she wonders. Did she ever really know her mother? Was GG abducted … or did she leave? And if she left, why?
After her mother, famous TV broadcaster G.G. Carter, disappears, 17-year-old Grace begins to piece together secrets of her family's past. G.G. disappears in the middle of Grace's little brother's soccer game, ostensibly to take a work call, but when she doesn't return and fails to respond to phone calls and texts, she officially becomes a missing person. The question is, was G.G. taken, or did she leave of her own accord? Grace, a budding astronomer with a keen ability to see patterns, begins piecing together clues to figure out what happened to her mother. And with the help of her best friend, her crush, and her actor grandmother, Grace realizes that not everything in her life is what she had believed it to be. Slowly teasing out the story, Canadian author Voros deftly mixes a missing persons mystery with science, complicated mother/daughter relationships, first loves, and close friendships, and keeps the narrative engaging by conveying the complex relationships Grace must navigate with her friends and family. Ages 14 up. \n
