    • Abstract:
      Summary: Siblings Liv and Jory Brewer have grown up resenting each another. Liv--former pageant queen and reality TV star--was groomed for a life in the spotlight, while her older brother, Jory, born with a partial facial paralysis, was left in the shadows. The only thing they have in common is contempt for their parents. Now Liv is suing her mom and dad for emancipation, and Jory views the whole thing as yet another attention-getting spectacle. But on the day of the hearing, their parents mysteriously vanish, and the siblings are forced to work together. Liv feels certain she knows where they are and suspects that Jory knows more than he's telling...which is true. What starts as a simple overnight road trip soon takes a turn for the dangerous and surreal. And as the duo speeds through the deserts of Nevada, brother and sister will unearth deep family secrets that force them to relive their pasts as they try to retain a grip on the present.

Booklist Reviews 2019 May #1

From the author of the Winterkill series comes a new psychological thriller about two siblings searching for their missing parents. Beauty queen Liv has spent her life in the spotlight, but now she's suing her parents. Her brother Jory lives in the shadows and has long resented her. But when their parents disappear right before Liv's court hearing, the two siblings must work together to find answers. Boorman weaves an unexpected and twisted thriller from Liv and Jory's two perspectives. Each has a strong voice, and both face their own struggles, providing conflict while also giving them a way to reconnect. The story centers on Liv and Jory retracing memories while they track their parents' steps, forcing the siblings to confront the past they come to terms with one another. Ghostly elements successfully enhance their psychological journeys, fragmenting time and adding dark imagery. This story, of a brother and sister's journey through their pasts and into their futures, makes for haunting, shocking reading. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
