The Disappearance of Emily H.

Cover: 'The Disappearance of Emily H. '

Staff Review: "The Disappearance of Emily H. " by Barrie Summy


Attending her fifth new school in yet another new town, after yet another of her mother’s failed relationships, Raine, an eighth-grader, desperately hopes that this school will be her last. Raine possesses a unique gift--she feels and sees sparkles around people that allow her to see their memories. When she discovers that a fellow student named Emily Huvar is missing, and the three cliquey girls at her new school appear to be somehow involved, she becomes obsessed with using her supernatural talent to solve this mystery and find her. Written for tweens, this fun, involving and unusual mystery and story of a girl desiring some sort of normalcy is hard to put down.

Audience: children, tweens | Genre: fiction
