Description-

  • A taut YA crime thriller from the author of The Body of Christopher Creed. "There's no doubt Plum-Ucci can tell a heck of a story" (Booklist).

    A tiny pistol, passed from friend to friend at a party on an abandoned pier, suddenly fires—and Casey Carmody falls into the water below. Kurt, Casey's older brother, endures a seemingly endless night at the police station while the coast guard searches for his sister and his friends are questioned, one by one. Was the gunfire accidental or deliberate? Or was the whole drama one of Casey's practical jokes? And where is Casey—or her body—now?

    "The Night My Sister Went Missing has all the suspense and drama of a locked-room mystery . . . Carol Plum-Ucci, author of the award-winning The Body of Christopher Creed, has crafted an intricate mystery filled with shocking surprises and characters whom readers will remember for a long time." —Teenreads

    "Plum-Ucci's mastery at intensifying their observations into something dire and ominous speeds the plot along and should keep readers wondering just how this convoluted mystery will wrap up." —Kirkus Reviews

    "All the members of this loosely connected community harbor secrets they do not want to be revealed. But in the end, someone's secret comes to light with devastating consequences." —Publishers Weekly

    "The mystery is engrossing and the dramatic ending satisfying." —School Library Journal

Reviews-

  • Publisher's Weekly

    October 30, 2006
    As the book opens, 17-year-old narrator Kurt Carmody recounts his sister's disappearance from a dune party, where she was last seen on the abandoned pier on one of New Jersey's barrier islands. Someone brought a gun to the party; several partygoers heard the sound of a shot, and Casey vanished from the end of the pier-no trace of blood, no body. Kurt finds a quiet corner of the police station where he can overhear the cops' interrogations of the high school students who were at the party, each teen's answers throwing suspicion in a new direction. Through Kurt's first-person narrative, Plum-Ucci (The Body of Christopher Creed) addresses peer pressure and the chasm between social strata in this beachside town. Suspects include Stacy Kearney (the "Fallen Queen type"), granddaughter of the island's wealthiest man, who is allegedly pregnant, and Stacy's ex-boyfriend Mark Stern, who had just started dating Casey. All the members of this loosely connected community harbor secrets they do not want to be revealed. But in the end, someone's secret comes to light with devastating consequences. Ages 12-up.
