Nina was beautiful, artistic, wild . . . and adored by her younger sister, Ellie. But one day, without any warning, Nina disappeared.
Two years later, Ellie can't stop thinking about her sister. Although everyone else has given up hope that Nina will return, Ellie just knows her sister is out there, somewhere. If only Ellie had a clue where to look.
And then she gets one, in the form of a mysterious drawing tucked into the pages of a book. Determined to find her sister, Ellie takes off on a crazy, sexy, cross-country road trip with the only person who believes she's got a chance -- her hot, adventurous new crush.
Along the way, Ellie finds a few things she wasn't planning on. Like love. Mysteries. Lies. And something far more shocking -- the truth.
Ellie; pg. 55
Have you ever seen a house burning down? If you landed from another planet and didn't know what fire meant, you'd think it was beautiful, gentle even - delicate orange and gold and red and yellow flames, licking the house into nothingness.
Exchange between Sean and Ellie; pg. 66
"Sorry about all the cups, you can just kick them out of the way," Sean says. "Iced coffee is my crack."
"What a coincidence," I say. "Crack is my iced coffee."
Sean; pg. 90
"Ellie, I once drove to Canada for pancakes in the middle of the night because I didn't like the syrup they gave me at IHOP."
