When Jason Milwaukee's best friend, Sunshine, disappears from the face of the earth, the whole town, including Jason, starts searching for her. But the insistent voices in Jason's head won't let him get to the heart of the mystery-he's schizophrenic, and the voices make it hard to know what is real and what is not. As the chase becomes more panicked, Jason's meds start wearing off, and he is looking more and more guilty. But of what, exactly? Both brilliantly witty and intensely honest, this poignant novel draws upon the author's many years as an adolescent psychologist, but it's Vaught's powerful voice and expertly crafted mystery that will keep the pages turning.
