I didn’t realize until I got this book that I had previously read Kimberly McCreight’s, Reconstructing Amelia!  This book also didn’t disappoint!

Wylie is dealing with the death of her mother in a car accident while also dealing with mental issues. The high school junior has been seeing a therapist since she was in elementary school. Wylie has a tendency to throw up or pass out when the situation gets stressful. Since the death of her mother, she has also developed agoraphobia and has not left the house for weeks.

After getting a strange text from her ex-best friend Cassie begging for help, this ex- best friend sends her boyfriend Jasper to help.   The two get to know each other better as they travel from Boston up into Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine following Cassie’s cryptic clues. Along the way they meet people who help them and people who hinder them. When they find Cassie, they learn that all of their problems are just beginning.

This was an entertaining story about the length someone will go for their friends. It also take sort of a science fiction twist before its cliffhanging conclusion.  This is the first in a trilogy and it did seem like there was a lot of setting up happening for future plots but overall, it made me excited to see where the series goes from here!
