Me, the Missing, and the Dead
Me: Lucas Swain--I'm nearly sixteen years old and live in London. I was fairly normal until the night I found Violet. Then everything changed. The Missing: Dad. He disappeared five years ago. Nobody knows what happened to him, and nobody cares except me. It's enough to drive you crazy. The Dead: That's Violet . . . in the urn. Speaking of crazy--I know she's trying to tell me something, and I think it's about my father. . . . A dead lady may not be much to go on, but my dad's out there somewhere, and it's up to me to find out where.

Part mystery, part magical realism, part story of personal growth, and in large part simply about a funny teenager making light of his and his family s pain, this short novel is engaging from start to finish. --School Library Journal (starred review)
