The Night She Disappeared

April Henry. Holt/Ottaviano, $16.99 (240p) ISBN 978-0-8050-9262-2
When 17-year-old Kayla Cutler, an employee at Pete’s Pizza, disappears while delivering an order, her fellow employees are shocked and disturbed. Unfolding over the two weeks after Kayla vanishes, Henry’s (Girl, Stolen) heart-pounding mystery alternates among the perspectives of numerous characters, including Kayla’s co-workers Gabie, who is traumatized by Kayla’s kidnapping (and believes that she was the intended target), and Drew, a “straight-C stoner” who is supporting his drug-addicted mother, as well as a diver searching the Willamette River, a psychic, Kayla herself—and the man who kidnapped her. As Kayla plots an escape from the room in which she’s being held, Gabie and Drew try to investigate what happened to her, holding out hope that she’s still alive. It’s a riveting story that many readers will finish in one sitting, full of suspects and augmented by police reports, interviews, and newspaper articles that, along with the variety of voices, make the events feel all the more real. Each chapter is a surprise, and the tension builds steadily until the inevitable climactic face-off. Ages 12–up. Agent: Wendy Schmalz, Wendy Schmalz Agency. (Mar.)
