Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: In this tiny, terrifying town, the lost are never found. When Araceli Flores Harper is sent to live with her great-aunt Ottilie in her ramshackle Victorian home, the plan is simple. She'll buckle down and get ready for college. Life won't be exciting, but she'll cope, right? Wrong. From the start, things are very, very wrong. Her great-aunt still leaves food for the husband who went missing twenty years ago, and local businesses are plastered with MISSING posters. There are unexplained lights in the woods and a mysterious lab just beyond the city limits that the locals don't talk about. Ever. When she starts receiving mysterious letters that seem to be coming from the past, she suspects someone of pranking her or trying to drive her out of her mind. To solve these riddles and bring the lost home again, Araceli must delve into a truly diabolical conspiracy, but some secrets fight to stay buried...

    Araceli Flores Harper is used to following her parents around the world to dangerous places while they report on conflicts and revolutions, but when they head to Venezuela, they decide its time for her to stay with her great-aunt in America and get a more stable education. But the small town Araceli arrives at in New York state seems anything but stable: people are constantly disappearing, and an ominous lab has sprung up near town. When Araceli discovers a box and some old letters from a WWI soldier in her great-aunt's attic, she answers one for a school project and stashes it in the box—to her astonishment, she receives an answer from the soldier, a man named Oliver. Though convinced it's a prank, she continues to write to—and fall for—Oliver, and as she does, she begins to slowly connect this strange box in her attic to the disappearances in town. The packed (sometimes overly so) plot will appeal to YA Stranger Things fans, and the myriad cross-genre elements will draw readers of all kinds. Grades 8-11. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
