On a seemingly ordinary day, 17-year-old Lia Haddock hears news that will change her life forever: 300 men, women, and children living at a research facility in Limetown, Tennessee, have disappeared without a trace. Among the missing is Emile Haddock, Lia’s uncle. What happened to the people of Limetown? It’s all anyone can talk about. Except Lia’s parents, who refuse to discuss what might have happened there. They refuse, even, to discuss anything to do with Emile.

there was a lot of anticipation for this. and it wasn't bad. but it wasn't great either. they could have done a lot more. I enjoyed the mix of past and present perspectives. maybe I was disappointed because it is just such a base... ordinary story, more something I would expect from a young adult writer. I expected almost every revelation. And I didn't really understand the end. every part of the story seemed unnecessarily convoluted.
I guess the end take-away: underwhelming.

Okay book. Lots of interesting points. A bit repetative and dull, but also somewhat intriguing.

i found this book enjoyable, though i had a difficult time following the story itself due to the nature of the intertwined stories and had to restart the book and many chapters multiple times. the doctor who series is a difficult one to read and understand without the sound effects and varying voices. overall good but requires full attention.
