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.

I have been a fan of the Limetown podcast since it first aired a few years ago, and I was so excited to see that it's back this year with the wonderful addition of a novel. The backstory provided by this novel is excellent -- I was completely gripped by it and found myself finding excuses to keep listening. I think it might be a bit odd as a stand alone, but as a companion to the podcast it is terrific.

Keisha Lewis lived a quiet life with her wife, Alice, until the day Alice disappeared. After months of searching, presuming she was dead, Keisha held a funeral, mourned, and gradually tried to get on with her life. But that was before Keisha started to see her wife, again and again, in the background of news reports from all over America. Alice isn't dead, and she is showing up at every major tragedy and accident in the country. Following a line of clues, Keisha takes a job as a long-haul truck driver and begins searching for Alice.

I absolutely love the Alice Isn't Dead podcast, but I was disappointed by this novel. Unlike Fink's other novelization of his podcast -- Welcome to Nightvale -- this one doesn't add much to the original story. I found it hard to stay interested. That said, Jasika Nicole is amazing, a really talented voice actor, and I think anyone who hasn't listened to the podcast will enjoy.
