The community of Cryer’s Cross, Montana (population 212) is distraught when high school freshman Tiffany disappears without a trace. Already off-balance due to her OCD, 16-year-old Kendall is freaked out seeing Tiffany’s empty desk in the one-room school house, but somehow life goes on... until Kendall's boyfriend Nico also disappears, and also without a trace. Now the town is in a panic. Alone in her depression and with her OCD at an all-time high, Kendall notices something that connects Nico and Tiffany: they both sat at the same desk. She knows it's crazy, but Kendall finds herself drawn to the desk, dreaming of Nico and wondering if maybe she, too, will disappear...and whether that would be so bad. Then she begins receiving graffiti messages on the desk from someone who can only be Nico. Can he possibly be alive somewhere? Where is he? And how can Kendall help him? The only person who believes her is Jacian, the new guy she finds irritating...and attractive. As Kendall and Jacian grow closer, Kendall digs deeper into Nico's mysterious disappearance only to stumble upon some ugly—and deadly—local history. Kendall is about to find out just how far the townspeople will go to keep their secrets buried

Sometimes there's a book by an author you love, that you want to read so badly but when it comes time to pick it up, your afraid too because what if it's not as great as the last series, what if it's better can you abandon the characters you loved so much before? Will I be comparing every little thing to the other books? Yes I was afraid, but no not once did I compare anything to her Dream Catchers series. The writing is amazing, and the story stands on its own very well.
The town is Cryer's Cross and at the end of the last school year a student went missing, and in the start of the next another one goes missing. And it's Nico our main characters boyfriend. Kendall is OCD so when one person that she's seen every day goes missing she is trying desperately find him. And to top it off she's hearing his voice, and he's begging her to help her.
There is some paranormal to this novel, but it is very much a mystery novel. There's a lot of elements that all fall in place perfectly in this book, and through out the novel I asked myself, what was going on and it all fell into place perfectly.
I loved this book. And I can't wait to read Lisa's next books. And I would love to see Kendall again. Along with Kendall's friends Jacian and Marlena. But I at her signing, she suggested that that would not happen.
