Publisher's Summary

When Gwen's grandfather disappears from their home in New York City, he leaves a message saying not to worry, but that's hard when Gwen has upcoming violin auditions at Julliard! But then she meets Robert, a fellow musician, and things seem to look up.

At the same time, there are other forces in motion, like the scary great uncle who keeps coming by, and the strange man Gwen sees one day when shopping. Then there's the even stranger story Robert tells her about what she saw. And finally, there's a discovery that brings their worlds to a halt, uniting Gwen and Robert in ways neither of them could have foretold.

In this remarkable follow-up to the wildly popular Things Not Seen, Andrew Clements brings readers a multi-layered story all about art, friendship, love, and life.

    "Not my favorite Clements book"

    I bought this one to listen to with my daughter and while I wasn't disappointed, I don't think it was one of his best. Also, I didn't know that this is book 2 of a trilogy. I wish we had listened in order. The narrator was good. Side note: I wonder if anyone has counted how many times Clements uses the word "because" in this book. My estimate is 9 billion.
