How do you find someone who doesn't want to be found?

A girl searches for her missing addict brother while confronting her own secrets in this darkly lyrical novel.

Rachel has always idolized her older brother Micah. He struggles with addiction, but she tells herself that he's in control. And she almost believes it. Until the night that Micah doesn't come home.

Rachel's terrified--and she can't help but feel responsible. She should have listened when Micah tried to confide in her. And she only feels more guilt when she receives an anonymous note telling her that Micah is nearby and in danger.

With nothing more to go on than hope and a slim lead, Rachel and Micah's best friend, Tyler, begin the search. Along the way, Rachel will be forced to confront her own dark secrets, her growing attraction to Tyler...and the possibility that Micah may never come home.

    The music is provided by Sleeping at Last. This is kind of scary because I have been in this situation in a way..not my brother but a friend. I'm really anxious to read this book. I bet it will hit home.

    Great review! My kids, husband and I like to read the same books; it's like our very own little book club. We just finished reading a great book called "The Gilded Butterfly" by Sergei Selivanov. You can check out the book and get it right off the website, http://thegildedbutterflypage.com/index.html. I'll have to suggest this one to my family. Thanks for the post and the suggestion!
