“Innocence ends abruptly for 13-year-old Lizzie and Evie. As bone-deep best friends and neighbors, Lizzie thought there were no secrets between them. She sees Evie's family as perfect, especially her ideal, dazzling dad. But can we ever truly know one another? Evie disappears, and as the town frantically searches for the young girl, Lizzie becomes the focus of attention. She learns that perhaps she did not know her friend quite so well and perfection is an elusive state. Life can be confusing for 13-year-old girls, their bodies just awakening, their emotions not quite ready to be adult. Abbot perfectly captures the tragedy of vulnerability.”
