Missing | Penguin Random House Canada


Publisher: Penguin Teen
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong comes a new romantic thriller that will leave fans trembling for more.
The only thing Winter Crane likes about Reeve's End is that soon she'll leave it. Like her best friend did. Like her sister did. Like most of the teens born in town have done. There's nothing for them there but abandoned mines and empty futures. They're better off taking a chance elsewhere.
The only thing Winter will miss is the woods. Her only refuge. At least it was. Until the day she found Lennon left for dead, bleeding in a tree.
But now Lennon is gone too. And he has Winter questioning what she once thought was true. What if nobody left at all? What if they're all missing?
"Like Stephen King, who manages an under-the-covers, flashlight-in-face kind of storytelling without sounding ridiculous, Armstrong not only writes interesting page-turners, she has also achieved that unlikely goal, what all writers strive for: a genre of her own." —The Walrus


Reeve’s End is the kind of town every kid can’t wait to escape. Each summer, a dozen kids leave and at least a quarter never come back. I don’t blame them—I’ll do the same in another year. We thought it was just something that happened in towns like ours.
We were wrong.

"[A] compelling thriller that keeps the reader hooked until the end." --Starred Review, VOYA

"Master of crime thrillers, Armstrong (The Masked Truth,2015) introduces a new, intensely independent female protagonist . . . Winter gets into and out of treacherous situations frequently and with dubious ease, but readers will be drawn in by Armstrong’s expert pacing and meticulously constructed mystery." --Kirkus Reviews

"As [the plot] thickens, and the danger turns into a serious life-or-death threat, the narrative easily holds readers' interest. Thrills and mystery from a pro." --Booklist
