A girl who can see the past tries to save the future in this compelling tween mystery. Look for Emily on Ghostwriter, now available on AppleTV+!
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?
Sparkling praise for THE DISAPPEARANCE OF EMILY H.:
“The Disappearance of Emily H has everything—a quirky, believable heroine, a complex mystery that keeps you guessing, and even a touch of the paranormal. Readers won’t put this one down until the final sparkle.” — Gordon Korman, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“An extra-special extrasensory suspense story with unexpected twists and turns.” —Eric Walters, author of The Rule of Three
"An involving mystery thriller with a touch of fantasy and just a hint of romance."--Booklist
"Realistically captures the quiet horror of bullying . . . the mystery of Emily’s whereabouts unfolds with gripping tension and a dramatic conclusion."--PW

Raine is used to being the new girl: her mother has a pattern of dating the wrong guys and leaving town when the relationships fall apart. But as Raine starts eighth grade in the town of Yielding, N.Y., she has two additional problems. One is her supernatural ability to see "sparkles," which hold people's memories; these memories give Raine insight into people's inner lives, but her habit of reaching out to grab something no one else can see brands her as a weirdo. Additionally, Raine has moved into the house of Emily Huvar, a girl who disappeared two months earlier and is presumed dead. Via the sparkles Raine learns that a bullying classmate named Jennifer, who is turning her attention on Raine and her new friend Shirlee, may have had something to do with Emily's disappearance. Summy (the I So Don't Do... series) realistically captures the quiet horror of bullying and the methods tormentors use to avoid adult detection. Raine's resentment of her mother's dating patterns is similarly believable, and the mystery of Emily's whereabouts unfolds with gripping tension and a dramatic conclusion. Ages 10 up.
