Overview
Ever since The Night in Question left her with a hideous scar and no memory of what happened, Theo Lane has been hiding. An aspiring filmmaker, she uses a hidden button cam to keep the world at bay. She spends the entire summer in a Manhattan cafe, secretly documenting random "subjects."
Once school starts, Theo finds her best friend has morphed into a flirtatious, short-skirt-clad stranger. Everyone ignores the scar. As if that will make it go away. The cafe remains her lunchtime refuge.
Her most interesting subject is the Lost Boy, a stranger who comes in every day at the same time. When she finally gets up the courage to talk to him she discovers why: the Lost Boy, Andy, is waiting for someone who said she'd meet him there . . . four days ago. Intoxicated by Andy's love for this mystery girl, Theo agrees to help him find her, and her unhealthy obsession pulls her into a perilous, mind-bending journey. But is it really Andy's world she's investigating? Or is it her own?

Miller (Rock God) constructs an intricate and somewhat convoluted mystery in which high school senior Theo Lane delves deep into her past and the tragic event that has at once created her present and destroyed it. Theo walks New York City with a button-cam attached to her shirt, filming the unsuspecting and fixating on a boy in a coffee shop named Andy. After they strike up a conversation, Theo determines to help Andy find Sarah, the girl he thinks he loves, but knows next to nothing about. Miller gives Theo, a supremely unreliable narrator, a voice as off-kilter as she feels, as she tries to unravel the mystery that is Sarah, as well as a day she cant remember, after which she awoke feeling bruised and battered with a scar running down her face. That scar ends up being one of the least of the ones borne by Millers characters, as his story zigzags into increasingly grim psychological territory in ways that few readers will be able to predict. Ages 14up. Agent: Edward Necarsulmer IV, Dunow, Carlson & Lerner. (Nov.)
