    When Dee Ramirez, 18 and biracial, goes to see her mom in New Jersey, it isn't the kind of visit anyone wants to face. Dee's twin sister, Beth, is missing. Dee and her friend Tobi decide to look for clues, and they find Beth's scarf on a path in the Pinelands National Reserve in the process. In tandem with this plotline is the Redline Oil Company's plan to run a pipeline through the Pinelands and local activists' efforts to prevent this from happening—a cause to which Beth and Tobi are dedicated. Dee also gets drawn into the anti-pipeline activity, guided by Beth's binder of news clippings and notes, which begin to suggest that Beth's disappearance and Redline's plans are entwined. O'Connor skillfully builds the intrigue, which is interestingly shot through with the legend of the Jersey Devil, giving this eco-mystery a supernatural tinge. Her dusky palette lurks with purples and teals and the varied panels offer dynamic views of the story's action. Love for family and friends is at the narrative's core, giving this unusual sister-story a broad reach. Grades 7-10. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
