Amanda Valentino changed everything.
Callie Leary has exactly one thing, and one thing only, in common with Nia Rivera and Hal Bennett: They were each chosen by Amanda to be her guide. When Amanda arrived at Endeavor High, she told Callie she moves around a lot and always picks one person to help her navigate the choppy waters of a new school. Why did Amanda lie?
Following a course that they suspect Amanda deliberately plotted, Callie, Nia, and Hal piece together some cryptic clues. But they find more questions than answers and quickly realize that before they can figure out what happened to Amanda--the girl who changed their lives--they'll need to solve the most important mystery of all: Who is Amanda Valentino?
Praise For The Amanda Project: Book 1: invisible I…
“An entertainingly intricate mystery, enticingly structured with submysteries and textured with emotional tension. Amanda is a tantalizingly enigmatic figure. There’s just enough resolved here to satisfy, and plenty of questions left to keep readers anxiously awaiting the release of the series’ next title.”
-The Horn Book
“An amazingly creative interactive mystery that will draw you in from page one. Secrets, lies, cryptic notes, confusing clues, tattoos and missing persons all contribute to the drama swirling around Amanda as you turn each page. Get addicted to the enigma that is Amanda.”
“Forget sleeping. Once you begin exploring Amanda’s disappearance, you’ll be sucked in and won’t want to do anything but read. Amazing fun.”
-E. Lockhart, author of The Boyfriend List and The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau–Banks
