Thirteen-year old Lizzie Hood and her next door neighbor Evie Verver are inseparable. They are best friends who swap bathing suits and field-hockey sticks, and share everything that's happened to them. Together they live in the shadow of Evie's glamorous older sister Dusty, who provides a window on the exotic, intoxicating possibilities of their own teenage horizons. To Lizzie, the Verver household, presided over by Evie's big-hearted father, is the world's most perfect place. And then, one afternoon, Evie disappears. The only clue: a maroon sedan Lizzie spotted driving past the two girls earlier in the day. As a rabid, giddy panic spreads through the Midwestern suburban community, everyone looks to Lizzie for answers. Was Evie unhappy, troubled, upset? Had she mentioned being followed? Would she have gotten into the car of a stranger? Lizzie takes up her own furtive pursuit of the truth, prowling nights through backyards, peering through windows, pushing herself to the dark center of Evie's world. Haunted by dreams of her lost friend and titillated by her own new power at the center of the disappearance, Lizzie uncovers secrets and lies that make her wonder if she knew her best friend at all.

4.0 The End of Everything by Megan Abbott, narrated by Emily Bauer
The End of Everything features more messed up teenage girls, just like You Will Know Me, but I think these young ladies were even worse. I had fun reading this strange, mysterious, psychologically focused novel. Megan Abbott is quickly becoming a favorite of mine.

Then one afternoon, Evie disappears, and as a rabid, giddy panic spreads t...

4.0 The End of Everything
""" Savoring my war wounds, I sit, and feel I deserve rich rewards. Spotting my mother's secret Benson & Hedges pack crammed into the wet dirt of a gangly potted geranium, I think about pulling one out and lighting up. Evie and I did it once. It hurt our throats, but the good kind of hurt. That's wh...

4.0 Darkly absorbing
There’s something about Meg Abbot’s writing that’s all consuming. I read this book very quickly; her language is accessible and she drags you right into the minds of her characters and throws you into their world. Whether or not you want to be in it. I’m definitely sure I don’t want to be in Lizzi...
