Description

One year ago, Callie was found in an abandoned apartment, scrawling words on the wall: I KILLED HIM. His blood is on my hands. His heart is in my soul. I KILLED HIM.

But she remembers nothing of that night or of the previous thirty-six hours. All she knows is that her father, the reverend at the Church of the Holy Promise, is missing, as is Hannah, a young girl from the parish. Their disappearances have to be connected and Callie knows that her father was not a righteous man. Since that fateful night, she's been plagued by graphomania--an unending and debilitating compulsion to write. The words that flow from Callie's mind and through her pen don't seem to make sense--until now.

As the anniversary of Hannah's vanishing approaches, more words and memories bubble to the surface and a new guy in school might be the key to Callie putting together the puzzle. But digging up the secrets she's buried for so long might be her biggest mistake.

Review quote

Callie can't remember what happened the night when her reverend father and Hannah, a girl from the church, disappeared. Officers found her in a deserted apartment, covered in mud and the words I KILLED HIM. Now, she's tormented with the urge to write constantly. As the anniversary of the disappearance draws closer, Callie's writing gets worse, and new secrets come to light. This gripping mystery excels in the portrayal of teenagers'onflicted inner lives. The handling of drugs, alcohol, sex and relationships is realistic and likely to please parents and educators. All in all, this is an excellent choice for a reader seeking a plot-driven mystery with complex characters. Recommended. --Library Media Connection
