Shortlisted for the prestigious Teenage Book of the Year Award 2009.
This debut novel is a great page-turner with an endearing story that's full of rich detail and beautifully written. It has a terrific sense of place. Although the narrator is only 10 years old, the content of this book is definitely going to appeal to teenagers and adults. With a wonderful lightness of touch, the author intertwines the feelings of adults as children keep disappearing in a compelling and heart-felt way.
On the day Katharina Linden disappears, Pia is the last person to see her alive. Terror is spreading through the town. How could a ten-year-old girl vanish in a place where everybody knows everybody else? Pia is determined to find out what happened to Katharina. But then the next girl disappears.
