This thriller follows Flynn as he tries to solve the mystery of his missing girlfriend, January.

The more he discovers, the more confused he is as he uncovers the secrets she has been keeping from him. January had been distant ever since her mother remarried and moved her into her politician stepdad’s fancy house and switched her to private school. Though the couple tried to stay together through the changes, Flynn’s own secret was a source of strife, and January broke up with him after a fight right before her disappearance. That she’s no longer his girlfriend doesn’t stop Flynn from caring about her, and he doesn’t give up looking for answers. His search for January leads to his own revelation as he is forced by circumstances to come out to his parents and friends. Learning the truth about January leads Flynn and his new friend Kaz into danger and intrigue as they find themselves falling for each other and solving the mystery. The characters are believable, the mystery is interesting, and the action is often fast-paced. Flynn’s internal struggle to open up about his sexuality carries weight, and readers will be drawn into his emotional journey and his adventures in amateur sleuthing. VERDICT A fun mystery with a credible emotional pull; a general purchase for most YA collections.—Genevieve Feldman, San Francisco Public Library
