Hawthorn was enjoying a standard, if mundane, teenage life when the disappearance of Lizzie Lovett turned her life upside down. At first, Hawthorn doesn’t get why everyone is so hung up on a former popular girl gone missing but as the story unfolds, she begins to intertwine her life with the one Lizzie once had. Hawthorn comes up with her own theory for Lizzie’s disappearance. A theory way too absurd to take seriously…at first. The more Hawthorn talks, the more she believes. And what better way to collect evidence than to immerse herself in Lizzie’s life?
