In Faring's atmospheric, arresting thriller, two sisters return to their childhood home on Viloxin, an insular yet idyllic Mediterranean isle, to solve the mystery of their mother's disappearance. Mireille Foix was a glamorous, enigmatic movie star when she disappeared 10 years ago with the only copy of her eagerly anticipated screenplay, White Fox. Afterwards, daughters Manon (Noni) and Thäis (Tai) were sent to live with their aunt in New York. The girls, now 18 and 17, aren't close: serious, anxious Noni is writing a book about Mireille, while glitzy, dynamic Tai is a social media influencer. Both agree to attend a retrospective of their mother's work on Viloxin, hoping for closure. Yet their discovery of a cryptic note and a secret copy of the White Fox script lead them into a tangled, dangerous web of family secrets. Faring's gorgeous prose deftly handles three distinct narratives, including pages from the confessional White Fox script, while the mix of evocative fairy-tale elements and emblematic near-future technology creates an eerie, dread-laden mood. An engrossing, genre-defying read. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
