In Chloe Green’s small town of False Beach, Alabama, the golden girl has disappeared.
Shara Wheeler, principal’s daughter and queen bee of Willgrove Christian Academy kisses
Chloe in the school elevator - and then vanishes, leaving only a trail of pink note cards with
confusing messages on them. To figure out this strange mystery, Chloe teams up with star
football player Smith and resident mysterious guitar-player Rory (both recipients of kisses from
Shara as well). Their search for answers will reveal surprising things - about Willgrove, about
False Beach, about Shara, and about themselves.

This book was a fast-paced read, with a mystery to keep you intrigued throughout the
whole book. Though from time to time the prose feels a bit awkward and almost like it’s trying
too hard to seem like it’s from a teenager’s POV, overall I really enjoyed reading this book. The
end is really satisfying (if a bit hard to believe) and the tension between characters feels realistic
and suspenseful. The novel also manages to communicate a meaningful message about
stereotyping certain types of people - like people who live in the South or go to church. I would
give it four out of five stars.
