A book from the teen section that many adults would enjoy. A popular teacher goes missing, and the code of silence sworn by a small group of girls takes the story in some unusual directions. If you like to get into the minds of adolescents try this.

A quiet and chilling read. It is very similar to the movie "Picnic at Hanging Rock."

There is a great companion Web site that goes along with this book:
