Description

When high school junior Tommy Smythe goes missing, everyone has a theory about what happened to him. He was an odd kid, often deeply involved in particle physics, so maybe he just got distracted and wandered off. He was last seen at a pullout off the highway, so maybe someone snatched him. Tommy believes that everything is possible, and that until something can be proven false, it may be true. So as long as Tommy's whereabouts are undetermined, he could literally be anywhere.
Told in a series of first-person narratives from people who knew Tommy, "Evidence of Things Not Seen "by award-winning author Lindsey Lane explores themes of loneliness, connectedness, and the role we play in creating our own realities.
