A haunting novel about a girl who must face the consequences after her actions indirectly lead to her sister's disappearance. Rhylee didn't mean to kiss her sister's boyfriend. At least, not the first time. But it doesn't matter, because her sister, Abby, caught them together, ran into the dark woods behind their house...and never came home. As evidence mounts that something terrible has happened to Abby, no one wants to face the truth. Rhylee can't bring herself to admit what she's done: that she is the reason her sister ran away. Now Tommy, Abby's boyfriend, is the prime suspect in her disappearance, and Rhylee's world has been turned upside down. Slowly, Rhylee's family is breaking--their lives center on the hope that Abby will return. Rhylee knows they need to face the truth and begin healing--but how can they, when moving on feels like a betrayal? And how do you face the guilt of wishing a person gone...when they actually disappear?
